I just wanted to take a moment to let Ready Set Dance & anyone looking for a Dance Studio what an awesome Dance School this is. Our daughter Elianna has been dancing now at Ready Set Dance for 4 yrs. What she has gained from being a part of Ready Set Dance is not just the Art of Dance and all the techniques. But confidence, the importance of respect, etiquette, caring of others, helping others.


I have to say Elianna started with one dance class and now takes 9 classes plus competition classes. She is growing up to be a wonderful girl and an excellent dancer. Thank you, Tonya and all the teachers at Ready Set Dance. I recommend this dance school to everyone looking for the Art of Dance. Your children will love dance and be well taken care of.

Dear Miss Tonya and the Ready, Set, Dance crew,


I wanted to take a moment to thank you for putting together a wonderful recital this past weekend. We have so enjoyed these past two years participating in the Tuesdays dance classes through Children's Lighthouse. Paige's confidence has risen and she has really come out of her shell, much of that we attribute to you. My love for dance carried me through childhood and into adulthood, and I truly feel that the lessons dance teaches stretch beyond the studio. The care, detail and dedication that you and your team have for dance shows in everything you do and we are so grateful that you have touched our lives through Paige.


We are hopeful Paige will continue dance as she moves away from Children's Lighthouse and onto kindergarten in the fall. The values and passion Ready, Set, Dance possesses would contribute greatly to shaping who our daughter becomes. Thank you for all you do.

Thanks for the wonderful recital. Both Celeste and the family greatly enjoyed it – Great Job.

I have two children who attend Ready Set Dance and they both love their classes. Alyssa started with one class at the age of four and now, at nine years old, takes four classes and would do more if she had the time. Avery has been taking dance for three years and looks forward to his all boys hip hop/tumbling class each week.


The teachers at Ready Set Dance are incredible and you can tell that they really love what they do and that they love the kids. No dancer is pushed or pressured past their capabilities, but each dancer is encouraged to grow and reach to do their personal best. Tonya works very hard to keep class sizes manageable and to ensure that dancers in those classes are working at the same ability level. Safety of the dancers is a priority at Ready Set Dance; from safety in classes to the safety of the dancers during class change time. When it is time for the yearly dance recital, Tonya and the other teachers work extremely hard to make sure that each and every one of the dancers has a magical night and that they have the opportunity to shine on stage.


My kids and I are happy to be part of the Ready Set Dance family!

Ready, Set, Dance is not just another dance studio; it is a family.


Last year when my husband suffered a stroke it was the dance moms who came to my rescue, cleaning my house, bringing us meals and providing assistance in every way. When I tell people that my dance studio helped me, people can't believe it, but it is a testimony to the kind of studio Tonya is running! Tonya is committed to her families and she sees each child's potential and works very hard with her staff to see that her dancers live up to their potential. This attitude is what makes Ready, Set, Dance stand apart from all other studios on the Southwest side.


I have five daughters and one son and I have seen amazing growth from them and it is a result of coming to Ready, Set, Dance, I would have chosen no other place!

Ready, Set, Dance has been a great experience for my daughter, Savana, as well as for me! The studio has a wonderful staff of teachers that really care about the kids and have a real love for dance. They are considerate of students who are just starting out – as well as give that little extra ‘push’ for those who need encouragement to discover their own talent. We have tried a variety of classes during the 7 years Savana has attended RSD – and she has enjoyed them all.


The studio staff is always very attentive to the safety, emotional well-being, and physical demands of all of their students, which makes me very at ease during the time Savana is there.


We are so thankful to have such a quality dance studio in the area – as well as one that makes dancing economical enough to provide this for our daughter at a price that doesn’t ‘break’ the family budget.
