    “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. ”

    “My 8 year old daughter has been going to Markham School of Dance for 3 years now. I've always found the staff to be friendly and helpful. My daughter enjoys her classes and has made quite a few new friends while going as well! The recitals are always lively and colourful and they put on a great show. I would recommend this school to anyone :) ”

    “My daughter has been dancing here since she was 4. It's been 7 years with the school. We decided to continue dancing at this school due to the friendliness of all the teachers, students and parents. My daughter was very shy at first but the teachers are very patient and positive. Now she enjoys all the classes and this is like a second home to her. ”

    “I have been at MSD for 9 years now and it has been the best thing ever! The teachers support you a lot and help you if you need help. The classes are always fun. I don't think that I have ever come out of a class and have not laughed. They also work you hard. I always sweat. I have stayed at the studio because I have made so many friends. My goal this year is to work on my turns and my splits. I always remember when I dance that "Every Body Can Dance" and everyone should think that too! ”
