I strongly recommend this school! I have danced there for many years and I'm in their ballet company the Carolina Youth Ballet. The teachers care about thier students and put time into each and everyone of them. There costumes are amazing and they have more than 5 different teachers from the Carolina Ballet! True dancers come out of this school for sure(: I feel like as a dancer I can come here and have confidence in my self because the staff supports not only me but other students here. I love TAD and the Carolina Youth Ballet.
First in class instructors who care about their students – My daughter has danced at TAD since she was 3 and is now part of the Carolina Youth Ballet and jazz team. If you are looking for a program that focuses on technique and allows dancers to have experiences such as classes taught by professional dancers, peforming classical ballets, etc., I hightly recommend it. While technique is important, the staff truly cares about the dancers. I also like the quality and standards they set from costume selection to dance style. I have been to other shows and been shocked by the skimpy costumes and provacative style routines. TAD doesn't resort to this. It is truly a first class facility.
Very good and improving – Classes challenge young dancers. Professional atmosphere. Members of the Carolina Ballet teach the older girls and do an amazing job with that and the choreography in the Carolina Youth Ballet shows. Jazz and Tap also good with emphasis on technique and artistry.
Wonderful supportive dance studio- highly recommended – Triangle academy of dance (TAD ) is a wonderful environment for young dancers to even adults! The staff is very supportive in and out of the classroom. All of their performances are done at a very professional level. All classes build a comradery between the dancers. CarolinaYouth Ballet (CYB ) is a great organization for young ballet dancers. Dancers get instruction from many of the professional dancers from the Carolina Ballet company and put on spectacular performances! This studio has a great supportive atmosphere for dancers and parents! I have truly enjoyed all 13 and counting years at this studio!
Excellent studio with easy access for Cary residents – Triangle Academy(TAD) and the Carolina Youth Ballet(CYB-a non profit org linked to TAD) is a wonderful place for all young dancers no matter what their aspirations are. The linkage to CYB gives you access to instruction from professional dancers with the Carolina Ballet who are a joy to work with. This studio has something for everyone-even an adult tap class, which allowed this reviewer to once again confirm he has no natural rhythm at all-but hey, at least I know for certain now! The staff also does a good job of creating a community with the adults, especially during performance time for CYB as a lot of love and effort go into performances on all fronts. We highly recommend this studio.
Wonderful Dance School – My 4 daughters all attend Triangle Academy of Dance. They all love the teachers! The Carolina Youth ballet just put on their spring show, Coppelia, and it was wonderful! The students in CYB get to work with professional dancers from The Carolina Ballet. We highly recommend the dance school. The studio has made very positive changes over the past year and we feel it is a very caring and professional environment for children of all ages.
Amazing Dance School & Company – My three daughters have attending the Triangle Academy of Dance for six years now, and every year gets better. This past year has been an amazing year for my older daughter, as she was accepted into the competitive Jazz Team and Carolina Youth Ballet. She has loved the new instructors and changes at the school this past year. Margaret Severin-Hansen (Principal ballerina with Carolina Ballet) is the new Assistant Director of the Carolina Youth Ballet and is so wonderful, caring and professional with the children. We are also so grateful for the Jazz Team, as these dancers learn technique and not just the flash that's out there today. The Jazz costumes, music and dances are age appropriate and mommy approved!
I highly recommend this school!
Wonderful dance school – My daughter has been taking ballet and jazz classes for 5 years here and loves every minute of it. She is also part of the Carolina Youth Ballet company here. The class experience is a great environment for the kids. The teachers are professional, structured and caring with the students. The kids are encouraged and pushed to grow and learn but at the right pace and with the correct teaching. Most importantly, my daughter has FUN at every class, practice and performance.
The teachers encourage the kids to work hard but also ENJOY the whole process. The kids are learning the value of working hard, dedication, teamwork and exercise as well as the chance to perform in a professional production.
There is a family environment here with the parents getting involved in the RIGHT way to volunteer when needed to make each performance a success and joy to watch.
We have been very happy with all the classes, teachers and performances. If you are looking for a professional, open, caring environment for your child to dance, this is the place!
Not a place I would want my daughter to be – I have to agree with the lady who said they have an unhealthy environment.
I took my daughter there 4 years ago and she hated going every week. I thought she just needed encouragement, but when she started telling me the things the teacher (owner) told her, I was mortified. She called them lazy slobs and made fun of them in front of the other girls (very hard for an adolescent). She also kept telling them that all the other studios are bad and she would demonstrate how "bad" they were by sticking out her rear end and stumbling around.
I tried to talk to the owner to see if there was a misunderstanding, but she was very snippy and said "I'm a ballet teacher and ballet is hard. If I just play with them, they'll never be good dancers"
I tried to make my daughter finish out the year since you have to pay up front, but she was in tears too many times and she wasnt learning anything anyway. I asked myself "Is my daughter really THAT bad?" but I realized all of the girls in the class didn't even try because they felt so bad about themselves.
I finally pulled her out and she didn't ever want to dance again. Thankfully, I found out my neighbors daughter danced at the conservatory people had been reccomending. We went to see her in a recital and my daughter was inspired to try again.
I live pretty far south of Cary and at first, I wasnt thrilled about driving to Preston twice a week at rush hour. But, I take turns carpooling with my neighbor. I'm so glad we discovered this place. My daughter is like a different person and I am actually amazed that over the past 4 years, she has turned into a very beautiful, skilled dancer. And, most importantly, she is happy and has healthy self-esteem.
Now she dances 4 days a week and can't wait to go back again and again. The staff is very loving and fun, which makes the kids WANT to learn. The level of dancing is so much higher and more professional than TAD. The atmosphere is very supportive and the kids all cheer each other on. Our family couldn't be happier!
I simply don't understand why other parents would choose the environment at TAD. They must believe it when the owner tells them all the other studios are bad. They need to take their blinders off and realize there is so much better out there.
