Rave Reviews for Encore Studio

Over two decades of satisfied customers

“This was our first year and we really enjoyed everything. Our daughter had a blast and we are looking forward for many years to come. Keep up the great work!”

Harahan family

“The end of year concerts are fabulous, from the kids staying back stage the entire time to the rehearsal being quick and organized and not requiring costumes. It is perfect.”

Kenner family

“I just want to let you know how much we all enjoyed the concerts yesterday (there were a dozen of us). It was well-run, professional, and quite enjoyable. Please let your teachers know how impressed we are with all the children – they do a phenominal job. And to her teacher, please let her know that Sophie really enjoys her class and is looking forward to doing it again in the fall.”

Luling family

“I think you are doing a wonderful job and the school is an excellent place for children to learn and grow.”

New Orleans family

“I wanted to let you know how much my family and I enjoyed the concert. My mom commented that my dance reviews were never that much fun. The music and choreography were great.”

Metairie family

“Our family always enjoys the Encore performances and so last night was indeed entertaining. We love the music so we enjoyed both music and dancing. Karoline had a fabulous experience………invited several of her friends to attend and they had a blast.”

River Ridge family

“I was almost in tears and my wife was crying in the seats in amazement! That was the FIRST time she ever came out of her shell. I wanted to tell you that I truly LOVE your shows. It’s about the kids, not the several outfits!!!”

River Ridge family

“My husband and I were so surprised by how much Olivia has learned in such a short period of time. In spite of our many requests, she never shows us any of the steps she learns in class. We were thrilled and pleasantly surprised that our reserved 3 year old performed on stage and made it through to the finale.”

River Ridge family

“I really enjoy attending Encore. I live in Destrehan so it’s a bit of a ride, but totally worth it. Thanks again.”

Destrehan family

“Encore has been a breath of fresh air for our city and our kids. Our kids have grown as artists and I watched their talents grow while attending Encore. I didn’t want to have my kids in a dance recital where they change 4 outfits, all sparkles and pixi dust…I wanted to see our kids in their natural state. Encore was our answer. When you see a theater, tumbling or music performance that Encore produces, you are instantly embraced with amazement of what the kids on stage learned to perform. As I watch my kids on stage sing, dance and make people laugh…it dawns on me that they are not in crazy outfits that I would be distracted by, instead I am focused on the talent of every child on stage. If you want your child to be an artist and a master of their craft first you need to surround them by artistic motivators that know how to “TEACH” you how to be your best. My wife and I see the little artist in our kids flourishing everyday. We cannot get through a meal without our girls showing us the moves and songs they learned at Encore. As a father and fellow artist, I love seeing the positive effects Encore has made on my kids.”

“You have a great group of kids here! I can’t believe how much you can offer them and how amazing your facilities are. I wish I had a place like this when I was growing up.”
