Patricia Barnhill: The recital was wonderful! It was the best we've seen and we have been to
3 other studios' recitals! Many thanks to you (Katie), your mom (Lisa), the instructors and all
the volunteers for making the experience so incredible! It was so rewarding to see Rachel
perform with such an amazing group of dancers. She loves them, you and Dance & Co. THANK
Jennifer Valencia: I just want to say "thank you" and congratulate you on another phenomenal
show. It is amazing to me to see the dedication you have to your students. I looked around me
at one point in the production and thought in awe about how much work went in to the show-
-the preparation, the rehearsals, the logistics... and I'm sure I don't even know the half of it.
Your success as a business is not measured by how much money you make, or how big or fancy
your studio is, but by the appreciation of your customers and to that end, it's evident that you
are the definition of success.
Stephanie Lawrence: We have seen the studio grow and the dancers grow and it has been
amazing! You (Katie) and Lisa have done an amazing job at not only expanding but bringing
something new and innovative every year! Congratulations on a spectacular show!
Elizabeth Norconk: "I agree you two are a "Power Couple!". I'm speaking Katie and Lisa of
course. Wow, is all I can say about all the great changes and fabulous production this year. All
the girls improved tremendously. Thanks for giving the gift of dance to my daughters"
Niki Wickenhiser: My daughter has danced since she was four years old at three different
studios before we heard about Dance and Company. This studio had everything we were
looking for that the other studios lacked-instructors that were competent and knowledgeable
in their area of expertise, costumes that were appropriate and not explicit, a dance schedule
that is organized and reliable, and finally and most importantly, teachers that are caring, loving
and supportive of our daughter who is at the studio more than 15 hours a week at times. We
feel so fortunate and blessed to have found a place where our daughter is not only excelling in
dance, but truly feels it's her second home!
Theresa Suarez: Our son plays regular league sports AND loves to dance, and Dance & Company
brings out the best in him - especially the brightest smiles! He started tap lessons at age seven
after a few individual lessons with the Artistic Director. We thought it wise to become familiar
first with the studio's style of teaching boys dance technique. (Our son has enjoyed music and
dancing since he was a toddler, so why should that ever end, right?) Finding the right studio
environment was important - and Dance & Company impressed us from the beginning. After
two years, two major productions, and two dance camps for our son, we strongly recommend
Dance & Company. Our son is developing his focus, determination, and passion, through so
much fun and sweat! The tap shoes especially have this unexpected "cool factor" that not only
appeals to him, but to other boys (teammates, schoolmates, friends, and family) we know. We
all just need a nudge and vision of the possibilities of dance for boys (and girls, together), and
Dance & Company provides this and more!
"I had been looking for a dance studio in the Mira Mesa area that offered a variety of classes. I was tired of going to the gym and "forcing" my workouts, and the only dance studios I could find were located further that I was willing to drive. When I saw that Dance & Co. was opening right by my work I was ecstatic and couldn't wait to sign up. The instructors are amazing...each with their own personality and dance style. And the variety of classes and times leaves something for everyone.
Being an adult in her early-30s, I feel comfortable dancing with the advanced girls (even though they are half my age). The instructors are only concerned about my growth in dance, not my age. And I love take classes that complement my dancing, like Pilates and Cardio.
I highly recommend this studio to anyone looking to have a fun and challenging workout!"

"Studio has made me grown so much as a dancer in a short amount of time and the people there have been so generous and helpful. It has become like a second home for me."
- Valerie Juguilon
. "I've been dancing at different studios and schools for many years and Dance and Company is about as good as it gets! My daughters (ages 3 and 7) and I all dance here. The staff is very talented and knowledgeable, the atmosphere is welcoming (not competitive), and the prices are extremely affordable. This studio caters to all levels and all schedules. I strongly recommend this studio for kids and adults."
- Jennifer Valencia
This stuido has dramatically changed my life. It is filled with amazing teachers, dancers, and a very healthy environment for all ages! It will help you stay fit, and have fun at the same time."
- Kayla Shakiba
This studio is also a great place for adults too.... whether you are looking to get in better shape through some of their many fitness classes or if you are looking for a place where you can study dance as an adult. No one is too old to come here and learn and feel like part of the family. It's a fun environment that makes for a great social and creative outlet for adults as well as children.
The owners and teaching staff are very knowledgable and helpful and will always help you and your child find the right classes to get the most benefit.
My teenage daughter and I have been coming here since they opened and I highly recommend it to one and all!"
