I am proud to say that I am a Rising Stars dancer! This school is honestly amazing. The teachers and staff are incredible and there is always positive energy in the air. Rising Stars is like a second home; you know that you are always welcome there and everyone is like family. Not only are we constantly learning, practicing, and growing into beautiful dancers, but we are always having fun and helping each other out! We know that our teachers want the best for us. Not only do they want to see us succeed in dance, but in everything we do in life. Rising Stars is a great studio and there is no other place I would rather be!
Rising Stars is AMAZING! I have been dancing here since I was 6. I feel as if I have grown with the studio! I have expanded my dancing ability thanks to all the help from the wonderful teachers. They are all so well educated in the field, and are always determined to help each student do their best and succeed! I love Rising Stars, it's my second home!
My oldest daughter started dancing at Rising Stars when she was 3 years old with Miss Joy. She loved being in her class so much that my younger daughter followed in her footsteps in Miss Joy's class and she loves every minute of being there. Miss Joy has more patience than anyone I know with the babies of Rising Stars and both of my daughters have made life long memories at the studio. I have also met a lot of moms at the studio that I am happy to call my friends. Each year my girls learn more and more and their love of dance gets greater and greater. This year my older daughter under Miss Jody's guidance has just taken off and can't get enough of dance. She has learned so much in all of her classes, with all of her teachers...it is truly remarkable. This studio provides my entire family with amazing memories that we will always cherish- from the very professional recitals, to the fun competitions the girls attend, to the father and daddy daughter classes available. I would recommend Rising Stars to anyone looking for a family atmosphere in their dance studio because you will definitely find it here. I couldn't be any happier with the choice I made years ago.
My son Ethan has been a part of the Rising Stars family for almost a year. I say family because that it what it feels like. They embraced my son and myself from the very first day with warmth and professionalism. The staff is wonderful. They are talented and enthusiastic and they helped transform my son into the male dancer he is today. I proudly wear my Rising Stars jacket everywhere I go!!!
Matthew, Missy, my husband and I have collectively attended Rising Stars for over 25 years. Beginner, intermediate, father/daughter, mother/daughter, elite, production - we have taken them all. The teachers are truly dedicated to their profession which is demonstrated by the passion that they exhibit at all levels. My kids both enjoy going to class everyday which is a testament to the quality and integrity of the entire staff. It is a shame that we only have one more year left but our relationship will continue as my sisters children now attend RS. Thank you RS for giving my family wonderful memories that will LAST A LIFETIME!
I have been a student at Rising Stars for 8 years now and they have been the best years of my life. All my years at R.S., I've taken Hip Hop and I love every bit of it. R.S. gives me the freedom to express myself through dance and the teachers are at such an elite level that i never stop growing. We never repeat choreography and each year it's something bigger and better. These teachers have been inspiration all throughout my life and have taught me lessons that I will carry with me the rest of my life. I am so happy to be a part of this tight-knit family that means the world to me. Rising Stars is truly my second home and I could not imagine not being here.
Hi. My name is Melissa Schiffman and I have been dancing at Rising Stars for 11 years. Trying to sum up how life changing and amazing Rising Stars is is pretty hard to do. Growing up with the teachers and students at RS has been fantastic. I have made so many wonderful memories here that I will never forget. I still remember every 8 count of my first dance with Miss Joelle, Poison Ivy. That dance was life-changing to me because it is when I realized my passion for dance and became a part of the wonderful Rising Stars family. RS means everything to me. Whether its dance related stuff or just advice the teachers are always there for me. They are all like my second mothers. I could be having a terrible day, but the moment I walk in to Rising Stars my mood changes and my day gets 1000 times better. Joelle, Jody, and Marguerite are huge inspirations to me and without them I have no idea where I would be. I plan on going to college and either majoring or minoring in dance. Rising Stars is to thank for that. They gave me the courage to go out and audition and prepared me very well. Dane is just too important to me for me to let go. Next year, along with 15 other seniors, I will walk down stage at recital with tears down my face knowing that I am leaving something as special and important to me like Rising Stars. I can honestly say that graduating Rising Stars will be the hardest thing I will ever do in my life.
Hi my names Alexis, I am 16 and I have been dancing with rising stars for 13 years now. Rising Stars is my life. I spend almost every day there. It is a place I go to where I feel safe and loved. I leave all of my drama and outside life at the door. Rising Stars always makes everything better. I can't even tell you how many times my terrible days have been turned around simply by walking into dance. Rising Stars is filled with amazing people. Because of Rising Stars, I have met life-long friends. Rising Stars is a learning and growing experience, and has helped me improve my dancing and confidence. At Rising Stars, I look up to all of my instructors. They are my role models. I remember being a little girl and looking up to all of the "big girls" in the elite levels and wishing that one day i could be just like them. It is amazing and the best feeling in the world to think that i am now that same role model for the younger kids! When i see the negative comments, it motivates me even more and also makes me laugh a little because of how ignorant people are. it is clear that this studio has done nothing but grow over the past years. I have learned SO much from all of my teachers whether dance related or not and have such a special bond with them, and that is something that no parent will ever understand- not even my own! Without Rising Stars, i would not be the dancer or person i am today. I am so proud and thankful to be a part of this fun- loving and kind-hearted FAMILY. xoxo
I have been a Rising Stars parent since 1996. I think that says it all!
I have been dancing at Rising Stars for 14 years now and I can honestly say that I love it. There is nothing I love more than being there, surrounded by my second family. I have watched this studio grow, from my very first dance class, with only room in the studio to now, with four rooms. I am at dance all the time and I am being taught by some of the most well educated teachers. I have learned so much. We have a blast during class but also work extremely hard. I mean let's be real, we are national champions. I have made the best friends here and would not change a thing. Throughout the 14 years, that I have been a Rising Star, the thought of leaving has never even crossed my mind. I am so proud to be a part of such an amazing team and I owe all that to the owners for making my time at Rising Stars wonderful. They are the most genuine people you will ever meet and all they want is to see their students succeed and have fun. There is no where I would rather be than at Rising Stars. The teachers here have seen me grow and become the person/dancer I am today. Graduating next year is going to be one of the hardest things I will ever have to do.
