I have been going to Bayshore Academy of Dance for ten years, and I love it. It's just just about how many shows we can do and how much we can pack into a year. It's about making each girl confident in herself and in her dancing, and really doing pieces rather than numbers. Last year we did a beautifully choreographed and high-concept piece to "Uninvited" by Alanis Moriessette. Dance numbers are fun and probably cleaner on technique than ours are, but our pieces tell stories, real and amazing and gorgeous stories. Without my dance classes, I wouldn't be the confident girl I am today, because my teachers taught me to love each and every bit of my body and myself and just go for it. They taught me that intensity and emotion is more important than being perfectly in-sync with every last girl in the group. It's about the joy and love for dancing. What we do is advanced and difficult and amazing. We're not a huge studio that does competitons or four shows a year. We're a family, with one brilliant show a year that amazes people every year with how high-concept and impressive the dances are. I have danced with almost all of the people in my class for the last five years, if not the last full decade, and made long-lasting friendships that I couldn't live without. Owner Lynn Scheps puts her life and soul into the studio, and cares deeply about every girl or boy who attends. This studio is the only place where I would ever want to dance, and I will miss it when I go to college.

I've danced at Bayshore since I was in middle school. The teachers are amazing, but whats more amazing is the sense of family. I have made life long friends from my years at Bayshore. And while I am in college now I still visit any chance I get. It truly is my second home!

Bayshore Acadamy of Dance is an amazing dance studio! I have recently joined Bayshore and am very happy to say that this studio is the best one I have been to yet! The teachers not only teach me how to dance but also life lessons. I could'nt even think of going to any other studio. <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 BAYSHORE FTW!!!<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3
