Testimonials

 

I started dancing with Miss.Noreen since I was 3 years old. Being apart of a great company was very rewarding. I improved my confidence and my ability to learn. I took Jazz, Hip Hop, Ballet, Tap and Contemporary, the environment was warm and welcoming. Dancing with Miss.Noreen and the company inspired me to dance on my own and create my own dances. Creating my own dances led me to perform in front of larger audiences. Dancing is so much fun and I am excited to be apart of such a great company. Dancing with Miss. Noreen and the other dancers is such a rewarding experience, you build relationships, confidence and the ability to learn and grow.
