What Our Customers Say
“We have been a part of New Attitudes for 10 years! To us, Janna and the studio are more than just dancing… they are family. My daughter has gone from a tiny tot dancer to a student teacher. My girls look forward to seeing their “dance family” every week. They have also gotten many other skills besides dancing. They have built relationships, trust, respect and responsibility through dance. We are lucky to be part of the New Attitudes Family.”

“New Attitudes has, and will always, be a cherished and important part of our lives. My daughter started dancing as a little girl. As the years passed the desire to compete was the ultimate goal. That competition goal was finally attained bringing many years of solo competitions and workshops. In addition to advancing in my daughter’s personal dance, she was honored to become a teacher at the studio. She was challenged in many different ways becoming a leader and mentor.
Our days of having New Attitudes in our daily lives has passed, but the life skills learned will always be with my daughter to take with her into her graduate degree and professional life. The 1st place trophies are no longer of importance; it is the unexpected life skills and character building opportunities that have benefited my daughter far beyond dance classes. Thank you, New Attitudes, for giving my daughter the opportunity to grow into a wonderful adult.”

“This studio has shaped me into the person I am today. Through dancing, competing, teaching and becoming a role model for the students, I have become a confident, hard-working, loving and educated woman. The lessons learned were far beyond how to perfect my pirouettes, fouettés, and leaps. I was able to continue onto high school and college dance teams and utilize what I had learned from Janna and the entire dance family. I was able to push myself to levels I never thought attainable… and dance in NYC! I feel so blessed to have matured and grown in this positive, happy and warm environment, and share my love with others. By smiling at the studio or on stage, I can—and have—changed a person’s day and attitude toward life and dance.”
With endless love and gratitude,

“Seventeen years ago I enrolled my 3-year-old daughter in dance classes at New Attitudes Dance Studios. She was young and cute and looked forward to wearing a tutu, but I truly just thought that this was something for her to “try” on her path to discovering her interests and passions. Little did I know that this one registration would lead to a life-altering passion for not only my oldest daughter, but her two younger sisters as well. New Attitudes is not just a place for my girls to attend dance, but it’s their second home. It is a place where they can learn and grow and express themselves like no place other, and Janna isn’t just their dance teacher. She is their leader, their mother, their confidante, their friend, and their idol. What started 17 years ago as one little tap & jazz class has blossomed into 13 hours per week (per daughter) of jazz, tap, competition, lyrical, ballet, modern, pointe, performance, hip hop, and break dancing classes. What started as something to “try” has become something my girls cannot live without. I can honestly say that my girls would not be even a fraction of who they are today without Janna and the New Attitudes Dance Studios, and for that, I am eternally grateful!
“I started dancing at New Attitudes Dance Studio when I was 5, and continued until I graduated high school. I loved it so much that I wish I could have picked up the studio and moved it to college with me! New Attitudes was, and always will be, a second home to me. Janna, the other teachers, and all the students become family. You meet friends from different schools or grades, and although you may only see them once or twice a week, they become lifelong friends. In addition to being surrounded by amazing people, being a dancer at New Attitudes is more than learning technique and memorizing a routine. You learn how to be comfortable with your body, how to express feelings with movement, and most importantly, you learn to have fun.
The biggest thing at New Attitudes, compared to other studios, is the emphasis on enjoying yourself and having a positive attitude. I will always remember the day Janna told a student that the dance studio wasn’t called “Bad Attitudes” and that she will have to change her behavior if she wanted to continue in class. It is because of this rule that I enjoyed coming to class week after week. It made me feel comfortable and never afraid to try a new move. Everyone was there for the same reasons: to share our love of dance and have fun at the same time.”
