“Dedicated, highly skilled, caring“
Our daughter commenced dancing at SDS in 2000 at the age of 4. We had concerns with her choice to dance as we didn’t want her in a dance school which created the ‘Dance Mum’ atmosphere, nor did we want her in a studio that dressed her in costumes and makeup that was beyond her years. After a number of visits to many dance schools in the local area, we selected SDS we are so glad we joined them as our daughter absolutely loved it! The first year for me was a little hard at times, however Matt, Trish and their staff were fantastic the whole way through. Matt & Trish have developed a wonderful family atmosphere at their studio. Not only is it a family run business, they treat their students and parents as one big extended family. The teachers they employ have a love and commitment to dance and the students they teach. They are dedicated, highly skilled, caring and the kids always come first. The opportunities they provide for their students and families, through performances, knowledge, and their involvement in every aspect of their dance world is outstanding. As a community focused business, it is wonderful to see Matt and Trish not only provide opportunities for dancing and cheerleading, they also encourage the local businesses which are run by parents and students of the SDS family. They cross promote the businesses and encourage others to shine with them. To see a 16yo grow in her dance and cheer at SDS, whilst also having the opportunity to start a little cake decorating business on the side, just shows the dedicationand commitment Matt and Trish have to their students and the local community. Through their recent Project F1J1 they taught our kids the value of helping others, and giving back to those who may be less fortunate than us. This in itself is a valuable lesson that my daughter may not have received at any other dance studio. We have since relocated to Queensland, and the staff at SDS have been nothing but supportive. It was a hard decision, but they were there to help out with selection of our daughters new dance/cheer studio, to fill in paperwork for her tryouts, and we have been back to Sydney and welcomed with open arms a number of times in the last 6 weeks. Our daughter has been invited back to class when we are in Sydney and this just shows that we aren’t just enrolment numbers to Matt and Trish – we are family. We wish them all the very best in the upcoming awards – they are truly deserving.
