Barbara has been with Backstage Dance Studio since 2005 and is looking forward to sharing her love and knowledge of dance with many more of the students at Backstage Dance Studio.
"Our daughter has attended her first two years of dance at Backstage Dance Studio and couldn't love it more. I truly believe that the amazing and talented instructors are one of a kind and love what they do. They not only instill love for the art of dance but self-confidence, which is priceless. We look forward to many more years here and to watching our daughter develop a life enriching art."
