I traveled 2 hours to see the January performance by WDC because my god-son was performing. It was worth every inconvenience!! This was entertainment at a level far above "amateur"! The coreography, SPECTACULAR! These instructors ar top notch, very talented! And it seemed they took the strengths of each individual and really made them stand out while serving the whole group and the end result was "out-a-sight" energy, entertainment, artistic beauty. There were some breath-taking moments, some inspiring moments, a lot of just plain fun moments....AWSOME! The behind the scenes crew were fantastic to be able to keep everything rolling from one seamless moment to the next; how extraordinary for a small community dance company!
One of the best performances I have seen including big name/big screen events...and definitely something I will look forward to repeating! Thank you WDC!!

My daughter and son love Woodbridge Dance Company. The instuctors are very creative and talented and place great emphasis on proper technique in all dance disciplines. They have an eye for the individual strengths of their students and seek to bring out the best in all. The environment is very supportive and the shows are incredible.

I have seen my children grow in self confidence and also, they are motivated to meet new challenges as the instructors introduce new concepts and dance steps.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Increase the visibility of the organization through more community events, involvement in Prince William County public schools, perhaps volunteer to do a master class at the Center for Fine and Performing Arts program at Woodbridge Senior High School.

I have seen every performance this company has ever done and this is by far the best I've seen. The choreography was innovative and cutting-edge. These are some very talented instructors and dancers.
My favorites were the Helen Keller piece and the Bollywood number. Can't wait until next time.

I recently attended "The Coffee House Concert Collection" dance recital on Jan 15th at the Hylton Performing Arts Center by The Woodbridge Dance Company. I have to say, I was blown away.

As a musician, it was refreshing and inspiring to see another form of such awesome expression and art. Some of the performances were hip/cool/fun while others were incredibly moving with full blown explorations of themes and movements. It was fantastic to see kids, teens and young adults putting hard work into perfecting their art and delivering with such precision and incredible beauty. The Illusionist, Joe Romano, provided a fun comic relief inbetween sets. Kudos to the studio's choreographers and instructors for stretching these young creative minds and further developing their amazing talent.

Overall, an amazing show and a great way to spend a Saturday night. What else can I say? You should go see their performances if you can. You will not be disapointed.
