I would strongly suggest that if you want to sign your child up for dance you look else where. We had a horrible experience with this studio. The owner is a very poor business person, rude, unorganized and never around. The tuition is very overpriced as well. Expect to pay.... Costumes $75 per class, you must sell ads for recital program and there's just something so shady about this woman Miss Amber! She thinks dance is your life... Consider yourself warned look elsewhere... Miss Amber only likes to "teach" expert dancers. I use the term teach very loosely! She is a very poor excuse for what a dance teacher should be!!!

Very unorganized and can be rude.The owner NEEDS A SECRETARY!! Im waiting for my daughter to finish the year and thats it, no more. Owner hardly ever follows through with what she says. Never knows my balance or what I owe. Fired my daughters teacher in beginners class on saturday mornings then threw my daughter into intermediate on wednesday eves without asking first if we could even do that schedule. But she acted as if my daughter was doing so well and she made an advancement...little did I know at the time she fired the teacher. She also told me a price for the monthly tuition, then changed it on me without my knowledge and has every excuse in the book to justify her change in price. She never knows what happening. She says she will look into something and then I never hear from her.And that has happened multiple times. I asked her if my daughter could get a little extra help because she was stressed out with the new dance steps she had to learn and couldnt "get it". The class was too advanced for my daughter. The only response I got was " jeez your daughter is so shy" . NO, she was thrown into a class that is too advanced for her because you fired her teacher and now my daughter is struggling to keep up. She feels embarrased because she cant get it.And also not to mention she had to buy new shoes for the more advanced class because they were different from the beginners shoes. Let me tell you I cant even count how many times I had to hold my tongue for the sake of my daughter, she likes her friends there and likes the class so I dont want to upset anything. But I cant wait for this year to be over. Owner has also tried to convince parents to sponser her in the miss connecticut pageant. Only $500. yea I dont think so lady. She says that $50 of adds are mandatory for the recital, I have emailed her about this and what I need to do, but she adresses other things and always lacks answers for the things I need to know. I have to repeatedly email or call. She sometimes says she will talk to me in person but when I go there for class, she is never there. The dance teacher texted her last week when I was there because I needed socks for the parade for my daughter and the owner said she would have them for me on that wednesday. She wasnt even in the building. And no reply to the text the teacher sent. So we went to the parade this morning with no socks, no hat and again NO AMBER (the owner)She was in the vicinity somewhere but no one knew exactly where. So my daughter decided to sit on the sidelines and just watch the parade. I am so seriously fed up with this woman. The end of June cant come soon enough. I will NOT recommend this place to anyone!!! And the dance teachers sent a note home asking $3.00 from every student so the teachers can get Miss Amber a gift for all she does. I DONT THINK SO!!! ALso every student paid $75.00 per class for costumes for the recital. Plus you have to pay to get it sized from somewhere when we have not even recieved our costumes yet and the recital is 4 weeks away. So that means we will be scrambling at the last minute to get a seamstress. My suggestion is GO SOMEWHERE ELSE. Dont waste your time or money on this place.

I was really excited to find a studio to start my child in dance, but after seeing how this studio owner has acted online in these reviews and in person, I would never recommend this place to anyone. I'm still looking for a studio and tried out Velocity dance works and they were very nice and the students and teachers are all amazing dancers. I have not tried triple treat because I do not like how the students behave. I would never allow my child to dance at such a rude studio as this one is. Stay away!

I decided to start dancing at the age of 15 called Performers edge and was told that there was no classes for me and that the teacher had no time to teach someone who had never danced before. She told me to try hip hop since it would be easier for me. I was extremely upset, but now I know it was for the best. I currently dance at Velocity Dance Works in Wolcott. The dancers there prove that you do not need years of training to be an incredible dancer. Performers edge can keep their snotty attitude.

Business Response:

I find it pathetic that you went to every website on here and copy and pasted this untrue review. I do not have classes for 15 year olds that just want to dance with their friends (who have been dancing their whole lives). I was not snotty and I would never be to anyone. Sorry that you wanted to dance with your age group but that just isn't possible. You should have taken hiphop... it is a wonderful class. Good luck at Velocity Dance Works... I am sure they are teaching you everything you need to know. Why didnt you call Triple Threat, I wonder if you can dance with their 15 year olds!?? I dont think so!!! :)

We have worked with Miss Amber for six years, having a not wonderful Ballerina she has done so much for my daughters self esteem, she has put up with a lot of issues over the years and has taken the time and care to work with me. when she has an excellent student she will do whatever she has to too help that student excel! I rate performers edge and staff very highly!

I've been thinking of taking dance lessons but I didn't know were to go. So many places people have told me about but I really couldn't choose. I had made up my mind and went to Performers edge!! It was the best decisions. They put me right into class and I was learning so much. I loved it, it was one of the best experiences of my life

Just make sure when you sign up you are ready to kiss Ambers booty to have your child be noticed like a few mothers do over there so there kids who are not the best dancers appear to be the best

Business Response:

negative It is unfortunate that you feel this way. You cannot join the advanced class after only 2 years of dancing only because your friends are in that class. That is not how it works. You must be experienced for at least 8 years before trying out for the advanced class... it has nothing to do with who is liked more.

Message from Performer's Edge

This performing arts facility has a state of the art dance room, equipped with surround sound, 30 feet of mirrors, and a sprung dance floor. The studio is all together 3000 square feet, including a tumbling area, dance room, musical theatre room, a costume closet and two waiting rooms.



The staff is professional and experienced in the area that they teach. We encourage children to have fun, but learn important technique at the same time.
