A word from our parents
"I've been anxiously counting down the days/years til my son was old enough to join the Protégé family and after enrolling him in the summer program and witnessing first hand all of the safety measures that have been implemented I feel very confident and comfortable registering my son at Protégé this fall. They are doing a great job in creating a safe yet welcoming environment for litt ones."

"Very grateful to Miss Christine and the team @protegedanceco for this mini camp! They're doing everything right - small class sizes, socially distant squares, mask in and out and a clean environment. Thank you for giving our kids some much needed normalcy right now!"

"My youngest daughter was enrolled in the mibni munchkin program at Protégé, and she loved it. Her teacher, Miss Hannah was amazing! She made the class fun, she was patient and caring! Everything you would want for an instructor for this age group. When covid shut everythg down, both of my daughters were upset that dance was on pause. However, when things slowly started to open again for summer clases, I was thoroughly impressed with the covid protocols that were put in place, and the dedication of the studio owner, Miss Christine. When the fall registration came around, I didn't hesitate to enroll both of my daughters. My little one is super excited to be starting dance again. Kudos to everyone at Protégé for making this a safe, fun and professional environment."

"Hi Miss Christine, I wanted to take a moment to say how pleased I am with Claire's progress this year. Since Claire started with the competitive team, I have seen significant development in her confidence, self-expression, responsibility and team spirit. I credit much of that to the positive influence of her teachers and fellow students at Protégé. I am impressed by the poise she shows in the face of challenges, and it's clear that she is benefiting from strong role models at the studio.
Thank you for creating such a healthy atmosphere at Protégé."

"I just wanted to send a few pictures to share some of the wonderful moments from Natalie's first competition. I am thankful for the opportunity and we appreciate it very much. Natalie is so happy as is evidenced in every picture she takes. I am also happy that she gets to spend time with great role models at Protégé both young and old alike. My only child now has big sisters who are just as passionate about dance as she is 😁!!!"

"Hi Christine - I just wanted to send you a quick note to say thank you. The photo day was so organized and well run -- and I couldn't be more pleased with the results. In addition, your commitment to preparing all your students - rec and comp - for their final performances really stands out. I love seeing how the students are learning to be part of a real live production with the finale and other extra roles they learn for year end show. Your approach to these things and the little "extras" is part of what makes Protege special :) I know things are really hectic right now and I wanted to let you know that your efforts are noticed and appreciated!"

"The confidence you have built in my daughter in this short time is truly a gift. You've not only taught them strong dance skills and technique but also to value their bodies, to have respect for themselves and to never settle for just ok. The things you and the rest of her teachers have taught my daughter like self esteem, self respect, determination, commitment, time management, social skills, just to name a few, you cannot put a price on that.
I think you dance teachers are truly amazing and.... those babies that are starting out at Protégé just don't know how lucky they are!"
Donna ~ parent
"Christine, I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for allowing me to share with your artists. I had a wonderful time and hope they will continue to grow on their journey. I am thrilled to see there are still teachers who teach discipline, work ethics and manners. It was indeed a breath of fresh air..."

The venue was perfect, the costumes were gorgeous, the routines were choreographed so well, the music was wonderful and the talent and passion of these young people was so moving. On top of that my children had such a joyous and exciting experience, I know it will stay in their memories forever.
Thank you for putting so much of yourself into every aspect of it. Your love of dance and desire to show others this world of art meets sport is so obvious. Your dedication to your studio, and to the kids that go to it is so very much appreciated."
