“Eight years ago, I called a dance studio in Bend to find out about starting my girls, then 3 and 8 years old, in dance classes. I had looked into dance studios in town and just by chance (or divine intervention?) Gotta Dance Studio & Company was the first one I called. From the beginning, Gotta Dance has been a wonderful experience. The atmosphere there is positive and supportive. Brandi came in and added to the positive environment with her enthusiasm, talent and care. My girls love taking dance at GDSC and I honestly love going there and hanging out with friends during their classes. Even though my girls do not have class with every instructor at the studio, we know them all personally and see the love and support they have for their students. Every one of them is an extension of Brandi’s ideals and love of teaching dance!”
If you want the best...
“My daughters Emily, Kaylee and I have been dancing at Gotta Dance for the past seven years. Gotta Dance is about teaching girls and boys to love and respect who they are. It’s about learning to listen to the beat in their soul and dance their hearts out. I watch the expression of joy, creativity and self-confidence. It’s about commitments, discipline and learning to be a team. Gotta Dance is a very safe and healthy environment. I respect and trust each and every instructor. If you want the best dance studio in Bend, Gotta Dance is the place to be. This is what I call home!”
Their customer service far exceeds anyone else here in Bend!
“Gotta Dance Studio & Company runs a perfect place for my kids to feel safe and happy. They have done really well at making their business welcoming–for all of us. Their customer service far exceeds anyone else here in Bend!”
We ended up at Gotta Dance for a very simple reason...
“Two years ago, my wife and I first discovered Gotta Dance Studio & Company. Our three girls (then 9, 9 and 6) were determined to dance. Anyone with children can attest to the fact that there are many challenges with orchestrating extracurricular activities–time and scheduling, level of comfort, cost, safety and atmosphere are all factors that come to mind. Our goal, with those things in mind, was to find a good fit for all three of them. We looked at a number of schools and one of our daughters had previously danced elsewhere in Bend. We ended up at Gotta Dance for a very simple reason–it felt right. From the very first call, subsequent visit and each day since, Brandi and Sean (as well as their staff) have been wonderful to us and the girls. While it was admittedly overwhelming at first (and took this dad a while to get the hang of the dance culture), I was surprisingly comfortable because of how we were treated. The girls love spending time there after school as they work on homework, socialize and of course, dance. Last year, our two oldest girls decided to try out for the school’s Performance Company, which culminated in an amazing opportunity for them to participate in Disneyland’s Performing Arts program. Not only were these owners informative about this process, but they also worked personally with us as we assimilated our third daughter into our home full-time. There are so many disciplines offered there, at multiple times and all at a reasonable price. While I could easily go on about how Brandi/Sean have worked with us (not just as customers but on a personal level), the best thing I can say is that we couldn’t be happier. Obviously, every parent has a unique idea of what may be a “good fit” for their circumstance, but this particular school has been great for our family! If you’re seriously looking at various options, I encourage you to give them a call and visit the facility.”
