"My daughter is in her 2nd year at the WRK. PLC. She had been taking dance classes at other studios since she was 5 years old. She went from taking classes to DANCING! Jessi Peralta Thompson and the WRK. KRW love what they do and care about the dance education of the children. I totally recommend her studio to anyone that is looking for a competent, hardworking, fun, and amazing dance studio."
-Jill Sons, mother of Skyler Sons
"So Blessed to have found WRK. PLC. Alexa has matured more since joining in the fall than in her entire dance career of 5 years"
-Susan Nagy, mother of Alexa Nagy
"This is a studio where every dancer can reach his/her maximum potential. Both of my daughters have been challenged in positive ways, and they love the supportive and fun environment! I was stunned by the progress each of them made in just one year of training at WRK. PLC."
-Roxanne Valentino, mother of Kaelyn & Carissa
"WRK. PLC. is absolutely wonderful! My daughter learned more her first year with this studio than she learned in several years at a previous studio. I love that the studio offers separate classes in Acro, Tumbling, and Flexibility. As a parent, my favorite part of this studio is the WRK. PLC. family that the staff has created and their attitude to promote kindness and teamwork amongst the dancers!"
