Review for Out on a Limb Dance Company & School, St Paul, MN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been lucky enough to dance with Out on a Limb (OOAL) for the majority of my life- about 14 years. When I couldn't afford to study dance at any other studio, the incredible staff at limb took me in and provided me with opportunities that have led to where I am today. I am currently a dance major at the University and still come back to OOAL whenever I can.
Limb is not just any studio, it is a community and a family. They do amazing work and there is no other experience equal to their student shows in the winter. Each winter they bring in students from local schools to see our performances for free. A lot of people see these shows as most beneficial to the children seeing them, but I strongly believe that the kids and staff performing on stage are getting just as great of an experience. Being on stage with hundreds of kids yelling, laughing, and cheering you on is unlike anything else.
Excuse my long response, but my love for this company is unparalleled. When I loose sight of my passion for dance or feel uninspired, I can always come back to OOAL and find it again.

Review for Out on a Limb Dance Company & School, St Paul, MN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

First of all, I have been dancing with Out on a Limb for about 10 years now and I would never want to change that. OOAL is not only a place where I can be myself and express who I am, it is also a home and the people there are my family. The teachers at OOAL are teaching me something that I love, and they have made it possible for me to follow my passion where I would not be able to anywhere else. The support and love I have been given from the students, teachers, (and company members), is remarkable. This company will forever be part of my life and forever be in my heart.
