Our family is extremely pleased with our daughters’ experience at the Fergus Elora Academy of Dance. Our daughter began her journey in dance at 2 ½ years of age and this will be her 3rd year as a ballet student at this studio. Dance is a wonderful experience for a child to be a part of. Participating in dance has taught our daughter commitment, structure, discipline and most importantly, self confidence. I have watched our daughter grow and develop over the past 3 years into a beautiful and confident ballerina and I couldn’t be more greatful for what Ms. Finlayson and the staff at the Fergus Elora Academy of Dance have provided us. I appreciate and commend the high standards, welcoming environment, and positive atmosphere that the studio maintains. I continue to feel confident and comfortable knowing that our daughter is happy and safe when I leave her there for her class. The studio is a place where I have watched our daughter grow with confidence, a place where we have developed friendships and most importantly, a place where we feel comfortable. From the encouragement and support to the positive energy and professionalism of Ms. Finlayson and the staff at the Fergus Elora Academy of Dance, our daughter always leaves the studio with a huge smile! I am counting the days until our youngest daughter can also be a part of this studio and experience all it has to offer. Thank you to the Fergus Elora Academy of Dance for being such a positive influence towards our daughter’s artistic journey and love of dance.
