See What Everyone is Saying About Raise The Barre!

Raise The Barre has been an amazing escape for my daughters during the past year! The studio was organized and founded in 2020 during the pandemic (talk about chutzpah!). My girls have been participating in classes every week since it opened. They have improved their dance skills in several different areas, including hip hop, modern, ballet and more! They have found a good network of friends there as well. All the dance instructors are very encouraging and help push the dancers beyond their limits. I can positively say, my girls are more confident now because they see the results of hard work! All in all, I can confidently say this dance studio has “Raised The Barre” in many ways! My kids love it here and if the kids are happy, I’m a happy dad!

Sydney had so much fun on her first day at Raise the Barre – Studio of Dance. She had me practicing the moves she learned!
~ Paul S., Forest Hill

When the world shut down the ladies at Raise The Barre jumped into action. Our kids were able to have a small sense of normalcy because of the hard work, scheduling and dedication to not only the love of dance but the dancers they grew to love. Dancing safely all summer and fall when most activities were canceled put smiles on our dancers’ faces, especially with the creative class options offered. We look forward to our upcoming year with our Raise The Barre family!

Just want to pass along that Naomi LOVED the tie too class on Wednesday and Sara had a blast at ballet! Thank you to Platinum J and Miss Emily!!! Can’t wait for week 2!

The girls were really nervous about the hip hop class because they have never had a “boy” teacher. Well, I wanted you to know they had the best time! They couldn’t say enough nice things about Platinum J and they are super excited for their next class. Just wanted to pass that along, you have a great employee.

Every week Whitney looks forward to going to ballet class. Thank you for providing a fun and safe place for her to go each week.

My son absolutely loved hip hop when he left last Monday. He showed us what he learned and was so excited about it! He even said “I went to the bathroom and it was so clean like ours” That made me laugh! Thank you so much for giving these kids such fun classes! You girls rock!

My daughter has danced with instructors from Raise the Barre since she was 5 years old. My daughter has not only learned how to be a beautiful, talented dancer, but how to persevere, how to be a good friend and a gracious student. Her confidence has grown every year and she continues to push herself to reach her goals, and I believe it is because of the solid instruction she gets at RTB. But the instructors at RTB are not just “dance teachers”, they are family. They truly care about their students and work hard to see them succeed not just at their dance goals, but also at life.

We absolutely love Raise The Barre! My daughter loves going to her classes. They also have so many other options for the rest of our family including the adults! It’s always clean and the teachers and owners are extremely helpful and friendly.
