What Our Customers Are Saying

Lakeasha Edwards


“I first chose Martell because all of my questions were answered by the website. My daughter, De’Moni, is entering her 8th year of dance at Martell. This Dance Studio has exceeded all of my expectations. Not only do they have wonderful teachers/faculty and put on amazing recitals, this studio offers a great dance education. Could not have chosen a better studio. ”

Brooks Collins-Gaines


“My daughters, Kennedy and Sydney have been coming to Martell School of Dance since 2012 at the ages of 3 and 2 years old. While searching, we looked for a professional dance studio that also offered diversity in dance styles as well as the faces they would see. The staff at Martell have not only taught my girls professionalism in dance but also the cultural history behind some of the dance styles. They have participated in so much from their annual dance classes like ballet, pointe, musical theater, hip hop, jazz, tap and acro to summer classes and even master classes with outside dance educators. Our faculty/staff reinforce compassion and encourage leadership opportunities and growth. I’ve witnessed my girls and their peers celebrate each other’s successes, encourage one another, and develop lifelong friendships built on mutual respect. The staff at Martell have become my girls’ other “moms”, “aunties”, “big sisters” etc. while they are away from home. Essentially, Martell, the staff, students, and many of the families have become family over the years but the skill, growth, and professionalism in tandem with the relationship have kept us there. We absolutely LOVE Martell School of Dance and would choose this family all over again. ”

“We love Martell School of Dance! I have three daughters and each of them has participated in one or more aspects of Martell’s programming from traditional coursework in various dance styles to Acro workshops to Princess Dance Camp. When I asked my dancers what they loved most about Martell, they responded in unison and without hesitation—the teachers. Not only does the faculty teach challenging skills and choreography, they are also excellent role models, providing a warm and nurturing environment where my daughters feel cared for and empowered to express themselves creatively. As a parent, I also appreciate how the office staff is accessible, communicative, organized and responsive. Martell’s website capabilities have also enhanced my parent experience. I can view schedules, register for classes, pay tuition and retrieve information regarding dress code, recitals, etc all from the website. I highly recommend Martell School of Dance without reservation. ”
