What Parents and Students are Saying about ECDC

"Over the last 4 years my daughter has taken many classes at ECDC. I have watched her grow not only in her dance skills, but in her self confidence as well. Wether it is a class taught by Michelle, or one of her talented teachers, my daughter looks forward to attending. ECDC not only teaches a variety of skills, but makes it a fun environment where children can truly flourish!!"~Lynne Ostrowsky
