Woodbridge Dance Company performances are far beyond what most probably expect of a dance show. The talent on the stage is amazing and very professional. The choreography of the pieces performed in the shows is always new and full of moves I have never seen before. It is easy to tell that every detail of the performances from costuming, music, lighting and more is given full attention. I always encourage others to attend the performances given by Woodbridge Dance Company and I have yet to hear anyone say that they were not pleased with the show.

My son has always loved to dance but began dance lessons at a later age than most. With the support of the staff, in particular, Lucetta Furr, Aaron has already performed duets at recitals and won awards in dance competitions after only two years.

Woodbridge Dance Company's support of the arts and the community has created a positive experience for not only my son, but many other individuals who are happiest when they dance.

The performances held twice a year are of a caliber which entertains even those who are not dance enthusiast. My husband is an example. Reluctantly, he attended the first performance our son was part of. His attention dwindles when it comes to sitting through performances. However, he was left wanting more at the end of the first show. In fact, he has become an advocate of the shows due to his invitations to other family members and friends.

The January 15th performance surpassed our expectations. The venue truly added to an already top notch performance.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

The experience in dance will open doors not only in college, but in my son's future

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

Improve communication to members and families

I have been connected with the Company from its beginning. In its seven years the Company continuously grows. Each year and each performance becomes more amazing then the last. The Directors and staff have a gift working with children. They continue to nurture and provide quality dance education to all ages. I am proud to serve as a board member to Woodbridge Dance Company and look forward to its next brilliantly entertaining concert.
