“We absolutely love AMA! Ms. Ann Marie & her staff are wonderful! Ann Marie gets to know all of the students and pays attention to everyone! She has a wonderful heart. All of the teachers & helpers are very caring and so talented! We feel like this school is more like home rather than just a place to learn dance, music, & tumbling. Thank you AMA for helping our daughter look forward to coming to class every week!”
