Does anyone know how to get in touch with the new dance studio in Lebanon? My daughter is wanting to take clogging. Also, not sure of who owns it and does anybody have any reviews on this new business? Not looking for trash talk just honest, fair oppinions please.

I have heard it is a really good studio and the students learn alot, my sister is 15 and dances there and just recently went to New York with them to dance with the rockettes! As far as clogging im not sure if they teach that there, bit I do know that Jennifer Jessee is a clogging instructor!

Thanks for the information. I will have to stop by there when I see somebody there. I have driven by several times and no one has been there. Someone said the recital they performed was really good.

You can go to their website just google Studio 413 Lebanon VA. There are several listed in other states. They have a list of the classes they have. My daughter takes classes there and absolutely loves the instructors.

The owners are from Abingdon. Ask anybody in Abingdon High School about them and you will get the real truth. Thay all smiles and sweetie to ya face but they trash talk and make fun of you Lebanon folks behind ya backs. They had a dance place in Abingdon but people wised up to them and quit going there. Every dance place they go to there is always problems.

Well until we have trouble here we will just enjoy the opportunity our kids are getting. We haven't had a dance studio here in quite awhile and our kids are loving it.

I've been a dance mom for many years seen a few studios, so far so good no more issues than normal with any other studio, the website is studio413dance.com only thing negative I can say thus far is that it seems the owner lets a close friend of hers make to many decisions for her but she does have a good personality and her family is all smiles thus far I haven't heard them talk poorly of anyone!! They all seem nice!

Sad to say but you will not find one around here. It is all about who can kiss up the most. And the local dance studio is based on who the family is friends with and who can help them the most. Talent plays a very small part in it. Wish it was different but I guess that is small town life.

You are correct not to be found. It is not based on talent at all, but based on who is friends with the family. There are many talented dancers at the local studio but they are not on the "elite" higher teams because their parents don't kiss up enough. It is sickening to think about it. Some of the ones who are on the "elite" teams can't dance as well as the ones on the lower level teams and they are on every higher team because of whose child they are. It is very very sad. It would be nice if they would be fair about it. It hurts the children because they know and can see that they play favorites. Wish things were different that's all.

I am also considering letting my daughter attend dance there but it sounds like a lot of drama to me. She is very active and enjoys participating in sports, I am the one that don't want to deal with the drama. What I need to know prior to investing time and money into this place are these rumors or facts. Not being from the area I don't know anyone to ask personally and I would like to make an educated decision about my daughters activities.

I won't kiss anyone's azz period. How can people be like that when you put food on their table. It is suppose to be about the kids. I understand the competitive part but there are better ways to conduct a business.

To True: you are correct in that the children are aware and hurt by the favoritism. It also doesn't help any that these same children like to cause drama at school by saying they are so much better than anyone else at dance and make fun of the other dance students abilities. They also like to brag that they are "sisters" to the owners daughters and therefore is allowed to do whatever she wants too. My grand daughter has always wanted to take dance and has never had a place to go locally until now. but she lacks self-confidence and doesnt want to take the chance of being made fun of. Girls can really be cruel to one another. I will be glad when she moves on to the high school. Everyone assures me that there isn't AS much drama as the middle school. Makes you wonder what these children hear at home, doesn't it?

I know when I was growing up this type of behavior was unexceptable as a child and intolerable from adults. I beleive that money is the motivation for their (adults) childish actions. It is troubling enough to have to raise children in a time that you are punished for enforcing discipline on a child. Maybe it was just me but I had to choose when I was a kid. A belt or switch. Looks like these people were raised with out being taught how people should treat others.

Everyone I talked to in Abingdon about the the dance studio said it was just a money racket ran by snobs and that is why it is no longer in Abingdon.

Makes you wonder how people like that always come out on top. Shaft all those you can, take care of yourself before the hand that feeds you, and belittle those less fortunate to pad your pocket book. What if everyone had this attitude??

They are nice but they are not educated dancers. They use girls who are from high school. The competition team is fun at first but wait till you pay majors bucks to travel,costumes,fees,hotel,etc . They do pick the best girls to compete Ive been there BUT just watch EVERYBODY wins at any competition!!! Also,studio DID NOT MAKE IT IN ABINGDON! Teachers didnt come half the time and wait till bad weather. Your told those classes will be made up to compensate for missed classes. NEVER HAPPENS PARENTS!!! Also girls who participate in regular classes, its cute (I know from experience to see your little one dance one stage or just have a pasttime BUT it will get OLD FAST!!! Hope you have money folks cause to compete or even participate you will pay major bucks. If you truly want to help you daugther exceed take her to the cheer academy in Abingdon. Its expensive too but I promise they will get experience in tumbling,dance,cheer, and a proven studio. If your serious in the total dance experience go to you go BUT you will have a teacher you can truly learn from there is well. You can GOOGLE the owner. Now, if you kid just wants to do dance for fun at Lebanon do it but honestly why pay bucks when they can get the same thing in gym class at school!
