Never went back
"I went there once to look at the studio. When I was getting out of the car, I saw this woman shouting at some guy and taking the shoes of a girl's feet. The little girl then walked to her dad in her socks and they drove away. There were several parents standing around and I asked them who the woman was, and the told me it was Olenka, the owner of the studio and the little girl was her daughter. The guy must have been the girl's dad. I felt bad for the little girl. I never went back."
Great music class
"Susan Boyd and Olenka Bren do a really nice job with the music together program. Kids really love the class. Business side is a bit unorganized and could use some work but overally, great program."
