As a military family with our biological family so far away, we are so thankful for the PDD Ohana. This studio is truly a home away from home for our daughter to not only train with talented teachers who love and embrace her for her who is, but also mentor her and provide opportunities to stretch her talents and shine. We’ve seen the growth and development of our daughter and many other dancers at the studio in the 5 years. We are truly blessed to be a part of this Team.
