What Our Customers Are Saying

Adam Cates

Tony Award Winning Choreographer

“The teachers at Martell clearly celebrate the diversity within their walls and help each child to achieve his or her dance potential. They are not only teaching them the art of dance, but also the important life skills that will help the kids grow into productive and creative adults”


Student, Age 13

“When I started at Martell in 2014, I had limited dance experience. From the beginning the dance instructors have been amazing. I feel encouraged to at least try all forms of dance. The instructors are friendly, creative, energetic, and LOVE to dance and share their love of dance with all of us. I can say, not only have I found out how much I love to express myself through dance, but also how to be a more responsible young woman. Dancing has given me so much confidence. I appreciate all the dance instructors and friends that I have made at Martell.”

Claudia Westphal


“If you’re looking for a great dance studio, check out Martell. My daughter has danced for 10 years. She started at a different studio whose sole focus was ballet and she had other dance interests. We moved to Martell 4 years ago and wish we would have done it much sooner. The teachers are awesome. Not only do they offer great instruction, they truly care about every dancer. It really is a “dance family.” My daughter now takes ballet, pointe, hip hop, tap, clogging, modern, lyrical and acro and participates on student staff, which offers opportunities for the students to demonstrate and help to instruct in classes. If your child loves to dance, I highly recommend Martell.”
