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. ”

Cherie Arthur


“We have absolutely treasured the last six years of our dance education at Martell School of Dance! Rachel and her staff are incredible role models who make the studio a positive place for dancers to thrive. They are professional, knowledgeable, supportive and truly care about each dancer. Everyone at Martell has become family to us, and we feel so blessed to be part of this fantastic community. Words cannot describe the warm and welcoming energy present in everyone’s smile. Martell is a place of learning and true joy. Over the last six years, our girls have not only learned excellent dance techniques, they have also gained priceless life skills. They have developed strong self confidence and poise, respect for others and learned ways to encourage peers while working together in groups. They have also learned to persevere and rise to any challenge presented. We are truly grateful for this positive and encouraging environment. We have learned to dance and so much more! We look forward to many more memories together. Thank you, Martell School of Dance; we are so proud to be part of your AMAZING family!”

“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.”
