Dance

Ballet Basics and Hip Hop parent:

After attending ballet and hip hop classes [with each of my girls], I just wanted to let you know how happy I am that we found the Creative Living Room. These classes were just what I hoped for, because I want the girls to have fun and gain self confidence.  Both girls loved their classes and look forward to going back.  I was truly impressed with you (Ms. Lisa) and Ms. Marie’s teaching styles, and both seemed just right for where the girls are developmentally. You (Ms. Lisa) and Ms. Marie have a  wonderful way of balancing fun and silliness with self-discipline and a feeling of maturity by letting the girls feel like equals in contributing to creative decisions.  It was very empowering for both of them.  Looking forward to more classes.

Little Dancers parents:

“Lynn, when I watch you with the children, I can’t help but think that you are an exceptionally gifted teacher. You accept each child where they are in their development and treat each in such a kind, nurturing manner.  I am so glad that (my daughter) is fortunate enough to have you as her first dance teacher. I couldn’t have asked for a more positive, talented, warm role model for her. Your bright smile and cheerful nature create such a pleasant environment for all the children.  Thank you for providing such a fun, stimulating dance experience!”

Busy Bodies parents:

“I have searched high and low for a dance class, and found what I wanted in my own back yard!”

“We had an absolutely fabulous time at class yesterday.  (My son) hasn’t stopped talking about it.  And it was so fun to watch how much fun they were all having.  I’m so glad that you are offering this class.”

Music

Music, Art & Me parents:

“I am writing to you today because I was reminded by Lance this morning just how great an impact you made in the short time we’ve known each other.  We were sitting this morning having a cute conversation about “who loves Lance” and you came in third place! He said, “mommy loves me,” daddy loves me,” and “Miss Allison loves me! It was at that moment that I realized just how much we miss you and most importantly, how special you made each and every kid feel in our Music and Me classes. The children are still singing your songs as they prance (or actually run) around the house. Lance now has his own knickerbocker drum and enjoys marching around singing the song.”

“Allison has an intuitive ability and a lot of experience, that enables her to work extraordinarily well with a group of young children, drawing their attention, involving them, encouraging the participation of children that are shy. It was a rich, age appropriate experience…the interconnectedness of many expressive art forms…”

“We liked all the music, creative stories…the structure and repetition. My child became a little singer at home and took each of the exercises and practiced. He liked the drum and rhyming sounds. He became very independent and I learned to let him “lead” a little more and I think he appreciated that”.”

Art

Happy Hands Art parents:

“We loved the creativity, types of projects, opportunity for fun, friendship and exploring interests and talents and that is was not just art but stories and play. My child learned a love of art, to follow directions, listening to a teacher without mom, that there are so many art forms and ways to be creative. Playdough is huge in our house now. We want more!”
