    “I have been at Markham School of Dance for over 10 years and this place is like a home to me. Everyone I meet treats me like family in which they are kind and welcoming. We are accepting here and that is what I like best about Markham School of Dance. "Every Body Can Dance!" just shows how inclusive it is. I have learned so much from the amazing teachers and grown not only as a dancer but as a person. I am happy to be dancing here and find that if you would like an accepting place that feels like home, this is the place for you. ”
