SSD offers the perfect combination, a professional, reputable ballet school with some of the best teachers, and simultaneously a gentle and nurturing environment tailoring to the individual needs of each student and allowing them to thrive. All of my girls LOVE SSD (they count down the sleeps until their next lesson), and I have seen such amazing improvements in them both physically and emotionally. Sharon is amazing and knowledgeable, always ensuring her little (and big) dancers have the best experience possible. We are so proud to be a part of the SSD dance family! Would strongly encourage anyone with kids interested in dance to come and try SSD! - Rebecca (SSD Parent 2019)
Such a lovely environment and very friendly! Have been dancing at Sharon’s for 19 years and have made great life long friendships and it has been such a confidence building experience.

My son started with Sharon Saunders as a preschooler, went on to do Jazz, Tap and Musical Theatre. After a long break to dancing, he wanted to return and his request was for Sharon Saunders! Such a great community to be a part of. We both love the quality of teaching and friendly staff and students.

The wonderful women teaching at Sharon Saunders studio with the Ready Set Dance program have provided such an amazing experience for my toddler. From including her when she is unsure, praising her participation and showing so much encouragement, watching my child’s confidence in herself grow and grow has been amazing. This program is fantastic for young girls and boys who love to groove and to build their confidence. I love watching my girl sing and dance all week from the things she has been doing in class. Thank you ladies for providing such a positive and fun learning experience for her.

We’ve been at SSD for 3 years now. We love the sense of community and family here. The teachers are amazing and incredibly kind. We love the focus on proper technique and fun without the pressure of competitions. The confidence both my children have gained from dancing here is impossible to put a price on.

My daughter has been dancing at Sharon Saunders dancers/ Ready Set dance since just before her 2nd birthday.
She loves it & looks forward to it each & every week. The teachers are fantastic, very professional & the classes are a great mixture of ballet, tap, hip hop, music & microphone work. Rebecca Scott -August 2019
Every teacher is absolutely top quality. They are so kind and caring and genuinely interested in each child, their uniqueness and their well being. They foster a beautiful environment in which every child feels noticed, special and confident in their surroundings. I cannot stress what a difference SSD and their RSD teachers make to these children (and their parents), and how deserving they are of this award! Bec SSD Parent 2019
Our Ready Set Dance teachers are amazing! They are so kind and caring; and nurture the individuality of each student, it’s so nice to know that they take as much joy and pride in our children’s accomplishments as we do- Kate SSD Parent 2019
If I could bottle Hannah up in a jar & pass her on to every single person who wants to dance... & have them open up the jar & have Hannah.... wow! That would be the best gift! Emily SSD Parent
