We are fortunate to have The Dance Collective here in the Upper Valley. Allyson Sawyer is more than just the owner; she is a teacher, a choreographer, and a friend to her students. The new dance space is beautiful and welcoming, adding to the already comfortable learning environment created by Allyson. Her eye for movement & music is perfectly paired with her eye for each dancer’s particular strengths. My daughter loves her time at dance because Allyson not only pushes her (and all her students) to higher levels, but does it with fun and style. The dancers of all ages support each other; you see and feel the team work & friendship immediately upon entering the studio. This is such a great vibe especially if you have a young, new dancer; he or she will be welcomed, encouraged, & grow as part of TDC team/family. Several styles of dance are taught with great detail & a great set of teachers. It’s the best feeling dropping off my daughter for dance; she is in awesome hands with good friends.
