Hear what they're saying about us...

"I can’t believe this will be our 6th season at BCSD, what an amazing journey it has been so far. When we walked through your doors 6 years ago with at that time our granddaughter would we in our wildest dream thought we would have fallen in love with the art of dance like we have. Now here we are 6 years & 3 granddaughters later. The love & passion that you & your staff show all your dancers is more than teacher/ student relationship it’s a family feeling. Thank you, Brenda Cranford & your amazing staff, for sharing your love of dance with our family."
