This is my grandaughter's (age 4) first experience with dance and she loves it. She looks forward to her class each week. I plan to enroll her in future classes.
I worked with DIW from time to time and saw several great things and still do on the occassion that I visit DC. The staff really seems to care about their work and believe in the programs they offer. Many of the students seem motivated to dance professionally and/or go to college and study further.
I was a student of dance as a teenager. Now, as an adult studying, I have really enjoyed the offerings of DIW. The staff really seems to care and be interested in our continued development, even though I am purely dancing for my own enjoyment. They motivate me to work harder and I'm glad that they are here in the community.
I really appreciate the experience that the Dance Institute of Washington has allowed myself and my grand-daughter. It is very proffessional and exact but also gives the right amount of norishment for young people to believe in themselves. The instructors are excellent and talented. The envirionment is very warm and inviting. I would suggest to anyone that wants to give their child dance instruction of dance to visit this space. You will be very pleased. Gilda
I have been able to connect with the dance community in a way I was not aware I could. There is a very strong desire to consistently improve on the services to community. The staff is very warm and friendly. I believe the studio needs more exposure. Even though they are in a highly exposed and trafficked location, I think most people need to know that the services they offer are available to all and not just a select group of people. Their target really is the under-privileged.
The Dance Institute of Washing is a great place for people of all ages to learn how to dance. Even if your just a beginner you can learn how to dance if you really want to. I recommend the Dance Institute of Washington to everyone who is passionate about dance or just wants to learn and have fun.
As an intern with the Dance Institute of Washington, I was greeted with open arms. Not only were they able to use my skills and abilities to propel the organization to the next level, but also, they were willing to allow me to take dance classes in exchange for my work. There is a spirit of excellence throughout the organization and the staff really works hard to help make others' lives better. DIW represents the community very well by illuminating the area with such an amazing and well-constructed building. I appreciate all of the programs that DIW has implemented to help underserved youth in the area.
Dance Institue has been great, It has help my daughter with Dance, she has become a better dancer and it has push her more. Her grades also have improve she has recieved A&B's each quater. The teacher's and the staff are great, they answer all your question and make you feel like family.
Dance Institute of Washington helped me to become a better dancer in ballet. I have learned more technique than in the past and have made many friends who I compete with in class so that I can become a better dancer. The instructors are teach very well and help you get in shape. They are very helpful adn listen to each student's individual needs.
We started our daughter in the 4-5 year old class and she loves it! The teacher is warm and caring, as are all the adults we've encountered there. The check in/out process seems secure. It's a perfect intro movement class. Our daughter enjoys showing her new moves to us.
i have been with the Dance institute of washington for over a little bit of 3 years now. i came here having an objective just to complete my 3 years in ballet for college, but what i am leaving with is much more. i leave with not just outstanding technique taught by extrodinary teachers but also with a passion for ballet and other techniques that i have never taken as well as dance disciplen and muscle memory. not having that much experience starting off here was actually the best thing that could have brought me thus far because starting off from scratch and getting the proper technique is what was needed for me. i not only connected to my trainers` as teachers but i felt like they were apart of my growing experience and as my family. i really do appreciate everything that you have done for me and the only way to you show you that it was worth all the hard work is to invite you to a show when i make it!
