My two daughters (ages 3 and 5) have studied at Excel for the past two years. I could not be happier with the experience, and am offended by the negative review on this site. I am a professional early childhood educator, and feel that classes geared towards preschoolers are developmentally appropriate and well organized.
As a former ballet dancer and instructor, I *love* the level of personal attention my daughters get from Ms. Stacey, and really enjoy the level of technique emphasized at Excel. I also truly appreciate the division between recreational dance and competitive dance. If my daughters decide to pursue dance as a sport, a passion, a hobby, or a social outlet, they will always be welcomed with open arms at our studio. I can't imagine taking them anywhere else.

I have seen this studio compete at many competitions. It is terrible at what they are teaching their students. The dance moves and costumes are very inappropriate for children...it is very emabarrassing to watch. Their costumes consist mainly of lingerie. Their teen and senior girls look like strippers and dance like that too! Very sad.....the teachers and parents of Excel Performing Arts should be ashamed! Teach your kids to have morals and self respect!

I've been taking my kids to Excel Performing Arts for seven years. They have learned so much. After 4 other dance studios, finally at Excel they actually were given individual specific instruction on what they needed to do to improve and grow as a dancer. Of course then they had to apply the hard work and effort to continue to improve. The competitive team has a senergy that encourages the kids to do their best and keep working to learn more. The recreational team provides great instruction for the older child and the maturity and patience in the younger classes is the perfect ingrediant for any child to fall in love with dancing. Excel is the perfect name because everyone can Excel to the best of their ability. This has brought out amazing confidence and satisfaction in my kids.
