  • Greta Leeming Studio was the safe and secure second home for my three children from their first steps to graduation. The studio continuously offered my kids a positive learning environment as well as a safe place to develop life skills that are now carrying them through their future years. The GLS staff are such strong role models in teaching, correcting, directing, empowering and encouraging all students to do their best.

  • Starting out as a very shy and introverted child, my daughter has grown into a confident young lady, which I attribute, in large part, to the quality of teachers at GLS. I entrust her care and well-being to the amazing GLS teachers and am so thankful for the time and attention they give, not only my daughter, but each student. The lessons she is taught daily go far beyond dance and if you are considering dance for your child, this is the right studio!
