I've been enrolled in classes here for over ten years now. I love everything about it, from the excitement of performances to the friendly environment. Throughout my time here I've taken seven different styles of dance and enjoy them all. There is a wide range of options for all age groups and all experience levels. Their well-organized system really allows you to track your growth and pushes you to work hard! The studio is extremely professional, especially as you get older, and really prepares you for becoming a talented and well rounded dancer.

This place is like a family to me. You learn so much in one year, and every one is so sweet and welcoming. There’s so much energy and excitement, it’ll lift your mood as well. The teachers are great, I just can’t say it enough. The fact that there is a wide range of dance styles is also awesome because you can choose to take as many, or as little as you want. No matter what, you’ll have the a great time. Highly recommended!

My 5-yr old daughter and I have been looking for the perfect dance school and Barriskill has met every need and expectation we had. We recently went and had a free trial class. The front desk was extremely helpful with any questions I had. The associates next door in the uniform store were also very helpful and full of knowledge that they had no problem sharing with me when asked for suggestions. The teacher was very good at keeping their attention. The other students were very welcoming and when they started to practice for the recital they kept eyes on her and helped her with her poses and placement. I met other parents who were also very welcoming and had nothing but praises about the school. I can't wait for her Summer class to start in July and I've already picked a class for her to start in the Fall as well!

Barriskill pretty much has something for everyone. All 3 of my kids have loved their time there, feel valued and well cared for by their teachers, and leave classes in great spirits. The place is bustling with positive energy, and the needs of the students, whether passionate, competitive or merely recreational dancers, are always attended to. Highly recommended!

Bariskill Dance Theatre School is a wonderful dance studio. Everyone is very friendly and welcoming, and recitals are amazing. I have been attending BDTS for about 5 years now and it is a wonderful experience. 👍😀

My daughter has been attending Barriskill for many years now and I just have to say how appreciative I am for this place! From top to bottom, they care about my daughter and give a great dance experience. I also appreciate the recitals and how they do not rush the kids (especially the girls) to grow up too fast and dance/dress like they are 10 years older than they are. Just such a great family environment - I cannot say enough.
