My daughter has been in Tamico Dancing for over four years. She has learned a lot and the ballet classes have helped her develop her personality. She has learned to interact with other kids and has learned to be a great leader.
Having our daughter in Tamico Dancing means a lot to any parents. We see our kids on stage performing Ballet is a great experience.

Tamico is professional, organized and truly devoted to her dance studio and its success, which leads to success for all who participate. I highly recommend this program, whether you are a beginner or more advanced, TamiCo has the knowledge to teach it all.

I am a student there and i have learned a lot while going there for a year and a half. At the studio I am surrounded by other kids who have a passion to learn dance so they create a great atmosphere to be in. And Ms. Tamiko pushes a lot because she knows we can do better.

I Love miss tamico and wish dancing for her 💖💖💖 she was the best teacher ever and I would like to go back to dance with her once more. After I stopped dancing with her I became a cheerleader 📣 and because of her, I would’ve never had the courage to try out. You guys should really sign your children up it will change their lives like it changed mine. Love you miss Tamico , hopefully, I can see you again
