A wonderful opportunity for my daughters


Savannah Ballet School of Dance was a wonderful opportunity for my daughters. They gained confidence on stage which has translated to their school activities i.e. being able to stand up in front of class and speak with no hesitation. I am grateful for the character building and poise they learned under the tutelage of Ms. Sue as well as guest teachers and choreographers.
