I recently rented Global Dance's theatre for a small dance recital. It was a really good experience. The theatre is very nice for a cast of 20 or fewer. The theatre's owner is an absolute pleasure to work with and is very professional. The lighting of our show was carried out by some of the very young Global Dance students, which I had some concerns about at first. However, they ended up doing a good job. The price of the rental was good too. I'd definitely recommend this theatre to anyone looking for a venue for a show with a small cast and small-medium audience.

My son and daughter attend the after school program at Global Dance. We are so happy with the program and the staff. My daughter just flourished and grew so much in her first year there. My younger son just started school and just started attending Global Dance. He loves the 3D mentoring program for boys. There is so much positive energy in this place and everyone who attends becomes part of the family they have created. It's unlike any other after school program we have participated in.

Wonderful place! I received a promotion and moved from Al to Roswell with my three daughters,. Global Dance picked up my girls from school, nurtured their spiritual as well as physical growth while enhancing their social and dance skills. I couldn’t have asked for a better place. I’m so thankful for the staff that always listened and remained open to change. We miss this place so much!!!

This is an amazing program for children of all ages. I have a 7 year old and a 15 year old enrolled here. The staff is not only caring but takes time out for each group of children and talk to them about their lives. This helps each child in intellectual, emotional, and character maturation. There is truly a village culture at Global Dance. I am so thankful I discovered this extended family for my girls.

I have attended the adult dance program at Global Dance for about three years now and could not be happier. The classes I attend are for beginners but as you progress the teachers will give you suggestions to challenge you even more. My flexibility and balance have improved 100 fold. I cannot thank Liezel, Lacy, Ania and Arron enough for the fun, fitness and laughs.

I have been taking adult classes with the studio for 3 years now. The studio is wonderful and teachers are amazing. Thy know how to help you and when to push you. They take everyone no matter your dance level and experience. It now feels like family. I would definitely recommend anyone to go try it out.
