Dancing helps me bring my heart and joy out”
Studio 180 has been such an amazing part of the Register family for almost eight years now. Ms. Katie and her dedicated teachers and staff are like family members who have lit the spark and continue to fuel our girls and their love for dance everyday. I love to overhear someone ask one of my daughters if they play any sports. Confidently, they will always reply, “Yes, I dance. That confidence comes from the spirit at Studio 180 that has taught them to believe in dance as something bigger than most people could possibly ever understand. They have been given the opportunity to belong to this perfect “bigger something” that Katie has created at Studio 180. They know and love dance forever/. And for that, we are grateful. We are so fortunate for the contagious passion and positive influence that truly define everything Studio 180 stands for.
All of the teachers at Studio 180 are nice and everybody is nice to each other. Dancing here is such a workout, making it hard and fun!
I am grateful for the many opportunities the studio has given to my dancer, such as leadership roles, community service hours and even public speaking. When it was time to apply to colleges, not only did my daughter have an impressive resume but the Studio 180 faculty made themselves available for any questions and help needed from tips for resume writing to writing recommendations. I have always felt that the Studio 180 faculty is committed to my daughter’s success.
Our experience has been incredible! It is a great atmosphere and my girls have made great friendships! We are so thankful to be a part of the studio!
When Mrs. Katie opened the studio, she provided me with the opportunity to do something different, something daring: Aerial Acrobatics. Today, Studio 180 isn’t just a place to do the thing I love, Mrs. Katie has turned it into a home away from home which is something that is exceedingly hard for me to say goodbye to as I leave for college.
There is no other family I would rather share my daughter with.
I really appreciate being a part of Studio 180 because the faculty take the time to really care about the dancers’ “whole being.” The teachers care deeply about the dancers’ physical and emotional well-being. They teach (and show by example) the values of hard work, persistence, kindness, and patience. I will be forever grateful to the teachers for their positive influence.
I like to say that the staff has been professional and courteous, but this studio is more than that. We don’t look at them as just staff. Katie and all of the instructors over the years have been teachers, role models and friends. They are fun-loving, nurturing, supportive and sincerely care about the dancers. Katie has always made us feel like family. I can’t think of anywhere else I would have had my daughter spend her years (and many, many, many, many hours). I believe the memories she has from her time at Studio 180 will truly last her a lifetime.
As a parent, you can only hope for your child to find their place in the world and grow into the amazing person you know they can be. I feel blessed that at such an early age our daughter has already found her place at Studio 180. At the studio, she feels safe to be herself, to try new things, and to accomplish more than she ever thought was possible. Every day, she is being taught values and life skills that will serve her well both in dance in in life. I am thankful that my daughter has such a positive place to call her second home, with such successful and strong women as her teachers and role models.
