“The more simple we are, the more complete we become”; I thought that a simple quote from August Rodin could put in words how I feel about the studio and what it has done for my daughter. She feels complete, and I believe it is has been achieved by a simple, yet powerful factor, love and true passion for the art. From the bottom of my heart, thank you for inspiring my daughter.
Love, Respect, Integrity, Discipline, and Excellence: values that are difficult to find. Inspire embraces them all! It has been a blessing to have amazing women like Danielle and Jasmine pour so much over my daughters; not only their beautiful art of dancing, but love, encouragement and wisdom. Thank you for doing what you do!

Some studios only give their time and attention to a few “privileged” kids. The staff at Inspire give their effort to every child, helping every child to reach their full potential. Thanks to Inspire, my child is constantly pushed to learn new complex turning sequences, improve her leaps, learn switch leaps and improve her general technique. It has been this individualized attention that has made my daughter a National Title Winner.
