  1. I love this studio. I have danced here for 5 years and LOVE it! Mrs.Jill is an amazing teacher, and will teach you true technique. Nutcracker is so fun:)

  2. Mrs.Jill is so sweet! She did a great job teaching me everything I know! She also did a great job on The Wizard of Oz and The Nutcracker! Thank you!

  3. Taylor Academy of Dance gives individual attention, correction and help to each dancer, unlike the mega studios that focus on only the top few dancers in the class. I’ve also been very impressed with the quality and organization regarding the classes, productions and recitals. It’s clear the students are absorbing what is being taught and are a pleasure to watch perform. Because Ms. Jill breaks down each dance step into “doable” smaller parts, even the beginner dancers thrive. She also makes class fun and genuinely cares about each child. Thanks to Ms. Jill, dance has become my daughter’s passion.

  4. Ms. Jill is a great teacher. She pushes you to do your best, because she knows you can. Hard work and respect is what she expects from you. Her studio is a great environment to be in. She doesn’t tolerate any bulling of any kind. She is a great teacher and expects your all, all the time:)
