“I wanted to thank you for our field trip dance experience on Friday.  The kids all really enjoyed it and allowed a lot of them to step out of their comfort zone.  Many children were very hesitant going into the day, but when we returned they were talking about it non-stop and telling their parents how much they truly enjoyed it.  Your instructors were top notch, very supportive, and full of energy.  This is definitely a field trip destination that will go to the top of my list!” – Andrew Krajewski, Site Director, Ridge Kids on the Move Summer Camp
