What Parents Are Saying

My daughter Elizabeth has been a student at Shannon O'Brien's for 6 years. Although there are numerous dance studios much closer to our home we wouldn't think of going anywhere else. Elizabeth loves all of the teachers, they are always courteous and work so well with the children. The professionalism of this studio is above and beyond; from the day to day activities to the recital. Shannon and Julie have created a great environment for young people. I would highly recommend Shannon O'Brien's to anyone looking for a place for their children to dance and grow.

Shannon, Julie and the SOSD staff,

Pete and I would like to thank you for the special gift that your dance studio has shared with our daughter. We remember dropping Felicia off when she was younger, and being so impressed with the fact that your teachers were enthusiastic and genuinely happy to see her, always greeting her by name. We knew she was in good hands! Through the years, dance has enriched her life in so many ways. It has influenced her to become creative, disciplined and focused. In addition, it has taught her what it takes to work as a team and be committed and passionate about something you love. Felicia could have 'retired' as the best dancer or the worst dancer, but all that really matters is the footprint that you have left on her life. You, Julie, Stacey, and Keri have been great role models for our daughter. Being a part of your dance studio has become a positive life experience that I know will serve Felicia well in her future. As Felicia graduates we feel that she will take away with her memories and lessons that will last a lifetime. We are so proud to say that our daughter was a dancer at your school.

Five years ago, my twin daughters began dance lessons at SOSD. They were three years old and extremely shy. I didn't know much about the studio at the time, just that a friend's daughter went there. I was very impressed with the level of caring that the teachers had for their very young students. Thanks to Shannon and the dedicated teachers and helpers, my shy little girls gained the confidence they needed to dance in such a professional recital on the big stage. This year they will proudly receive their 5 year award from SOSD!

Shannon O’Brien School of Dance will forever hold a special place in my heart. In fact, having been involved with such a positive and supportive performing arts environment, it gave me self-confidence that reached far beyond the mirrored walls of the dance room. Public speaking, class presentations were all of second nature, as I was one of the few who had quality experience with such important life skills. As I begin to enter the teaching profession, with my mentor at the dance studio still serving as one of my strongest role models, I continue to rely on such skills and confidence that my time at the Shannon O’Brien School of Dance has so adeptly provided. I am very grateful to have been a part of this encouraging, creative, welcoming, and exceptionally professional dance family.
