I am writing to tell about the extraordinary attention my daughter, Alexandra, has received at Penny Lane Dance Academy under the guidance and tutelage of Andi McCormack. My daughter began ballet and tap with Miss Andi in 2000. She was only 2 years old. Andi introduced and opened a world of dance to Alex by encouraging, complimenting, modeling, and asking her to pretend she was a princess, the wind, a fairy, a feather, etc. It was joyful for me to watch, and Andi gave Alex the greatest gift, "HOPE" for a wonderful future in the art of dance. Fast forward ten years. Although Alex's school has offered ballet every year since 1st grade, she has still continued to take dance classes with Penny Lane. My child loves taking tap and hip hop besides ballet. If someone is looking to give a gift to a young girl, I highly recommend taking classes at Penny Lane with Andi. She is caring and loving towards every child. She knows how to work with girls and boys who know what they want and those who need encouraging. Her interpersonal skills with both parent and child are exemplary. We love her and all her staff.
Our girls have danced at Penny Lane since they were two-years-old. Not only do they love it but, as parents, we can't say enough about the quality and appropriateness of the instruction, teachers, and performances. We take great pride in being a part of the Penny Lane family.
My daughter has been dancing (and sometimes singing) at Penny Lane since they first opened in Somers 2009. She loves each performance whether at Madison Square Garden or Somers Manor Nursing Home. She's learned the importance of dedication and attention to detail, and those skills have carried into her studies as well. Gracie is looking forward to dancing at Penny Lane until she graduates from high school.
I like to dance ballet with Miss Lucia because it makes me feel beautiful inside and out.
My three daughters have been part of the Penny Lane family for many years. We first came to Penny Lane because it was such a great environment for the little ones. But my older daughter also found a home on the dance team where she stayed through high school. Now my youngest is on the team as well and she could not be happier!
Penny Lane Dance Academy's summer and winter program was so amazing that my 3 daughters can not wait to go back and dance with Miss Andi in the fall!
