What our Libra Families think...
'Stand up and be Proud’! "As a parent, it is a wonderful feeling to know our children have a place to go where they can feel free to be who they are, let creativity take over and just be happy- Libra Dance studio is just that. Libra has taught our daughter to love dance and music more than she already did, and she looks forward to seeing Miss Laura and the Libra dance staff every week. As a family, we have adopted one of Miss Laura’s famous phrases 'Stand up and be proud’ and use it on a daily basis! We can not thank you enough for all that you offer and do with our kids. We wouldn’t dream of dancing anywhere else! Miss Laura, you should Stand up and be Proud of what you have built within Libra Dance Studio. -The Lorenz Family
"Libra Dance Studio is the best!!! We have been part of the "Libra family" since the studio opened its doors, when my oldest daughter was just 2 years old. Libra is truly something special! Miss Laura, the owner and director, is the heart and soul of this place. She has an inspiring passion for the art of dance, a heart of gold, and a love for children. My oldest daughter is 7 and this year she will dance in her fifth recital. She LOVES dance and looks forward to every class. She has grown so much as a person and a dancer over the last 5 years. Libra has given her skills, friends, confidence, and a healthy respect for herself and others. In this world, it's not always easy being a kid, for my daughter, Libra dance studio is a place she feels she belongs, it is her happy place! My younger daughter is 2 and has been enrolled in the studios dancing diapers program since she was 18 months old. She has so much fun, and feels like such a big girl at dance. She has learned to socialize with other children while developing age appropriate dance skills, as well as following direction and taking turns. She loves the class activities, loves her friends, and we are blessed to be a part of the class. This studio is family run, it is a safe and happy environment for students of all ages to learn the art of dance, make lifelong friendships and gain a sense of independence. Miss Laura is a positive influence on all of her students and she puts 100% into everything she does. We love her, we love Libra Dance Studio and we are honored to belong here."-Nicole Boorstein
"Libra has given our daughter a sense of accomplishment and confidence while making friends with similar interests. It has also encouraged discipline and hard work in a fun and friendly atmosphere."
"My daughter Erin started dance at Libra when she was 2 and a half last summer. She took the "creative" class that was taught by Miss Laura. I was a little apprehensive starting her so early, but I'm so glad that we decided to give the class a try during the summer camp. I couldn't have been more wrong! She absolutely LOVES it, and she just adores Miss Laura. Miss Laura has a contagious enthusiasm for her craft that is unmatched. She handles herself with such grace and ability. She taught my young child to love dance and that means the world to me. The class was developmentally appropriate, engaging, and fun! I know all the little ballerinas loved it and can't wait to return! We had the opportunity to attend Libra's second show this year and we truly enjoyed EVERY SECOND! What really struck me was that every single dancer had a genuine smile on their face. They loved dancing and being on stage and they were all so talented! That spoke volumes to me of the respect, passion and joy that Miss Laura and the rest of the staff at Libra instill in the dancers at the studio. We are truly grateful to have found such a wonderful person to take our daughter on this journey in dance and plan to continue for many years" -Stephanie Conaghan
"If you are looking for a dance studio look no further than Libra Dance Studio. Laura Giacomelli runs the studio with such class and grace that I am quite proud to have my daughters dance there and on the Libra Dance Company Competition team. All of the teachers and staff at Libra help to develop technical skills and emotional growth as well. Both of my girls have been dancing since they were 2.5. We joined Libra in the summer of 2013 and my girls have never been happier. My oldest has been competing with the Libra Dance company for 3 seasons and my youngest is in her first year of competition. My oldest went from being a shy little girl to a confident young lady with a passion for dance and a love of performing. They absolutely love going to the studio, competing with their team and being apart of the Libra family. My girls consider Libra a second home. Laura and her staff help to nurture the girls as well as teach them that hard work and discipline pays off. Whether looking for a beginner class for your little one or looking for a company to compete in Libra Dance Studio is the studio I would recommend." -Cheri Riggio
"Dance has been such an important part of my daughters life. The Libra Dance Company promotes each child's individual style and artistry while maintaining the proper technique. My daughter dances from her heart and her technique and artistry improves every year. At Libra, my daughter has received a well-rounded training in many forms of dance in a positive, noncompetitive and supportive environment, But what she has gained from LDCis so much more than a dance education. She has learned dedication, self-discipline and respect for herself and others. She has developed a healthy lifestyle and made lifelong friends.. The instructors in every class have been challenging, and supportive!. Most importantly, I cannot say enough about just how much impact Miss Laura has had on my daughters’ growth and development. She and her staff impart discipline, poise and physical strength Miss Laura, her parents and the staff have become a part of our lives in a way I never could have expected and I truly appreciate the experience!" -Tiffany Elias
