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. ”

“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!”

“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. ”
