Do your children love to dance? Do they dance around the house? Do they love to put on recitals? If so there is a dance school that is right for you. Here are a few of our favorite dance schools in the Miller Place area.
Marchands School of Dance
Did you see dancing in the streets of Miller Place this winter? It was probably the Marchand’s dancers!!
Marchand’s is a local family owned favorite. This is not a competitive dance school, rather, they focus on making you the best individual you can be. The instructors use dance technique to form an atmosphere that has helped thousands of students dream, believe and achieve their goals. Their goal is to develop confident and happy students. They work with them to make them realize that they are the very best they can be.
My daughters have been taking classes here for three years. We absolutely love Ms Margie, Ms Sommer and the rest of their staff. The classes are fun, the recitals at the Staller Center pull at your emotions. While you are there you can expect to laugh, clap, and even cry. Every year there is a beautiful “Bobs” dance in memory of Bob Marchand, the founder of the studio and their husband and father. Ms Sommer was even proposed to on stage!
They are also great at giving back to the community. Because of them, over 450 families enjoyed a Christmas dinner, local women’s shelters have a constant supply of shampoo and conditioner, and children receive gently used books. These are just a few of the ways Marchands gives back. Most importantly they give my daughters the self confidence and courage to take on the world.
Marchand’s School of Dance offers the following styles of dance: Hip Hop, Tap, Lyrical, Jazz, Ballet, and Adult Tap. They also throw some very exciting birthday parties!
