I’ve been wanting to take a class at Ninth Street ever since I came to Durham, and now I am. It’s like a dream come true!

I love your studio and the wide variety of classes you offer. I love your philosophy as well. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to work at Ninth Street.

I think your philosophy that everyone can dance is a very important thing. Plus, you definitely have a real knack for finding the best and brightest, friendliest and most supportive instructors around to teach your classes. I find Ninth Street a fun, friendly place to be, and the fact that you have so many loyal, returning students is testimony that a lot of other people do too!

You have created a lovely studio with very kind and skilled teachers. Also, there is such a great variety of disciplines with levels where anyone can feel comfortable yet challenged which is very special.

I know I’ve told you before, but I just love your studio classes, teachers, your make-up policies, everything! And you can quote me on that!

I have often thought of the Ninth Street Dance slogan – “Dance and movement classes for people of all shapes and sizes.” In my four wonderful years of teaching for you, I saw that hold true time and time again. The environment you have created fosters a palpable joy of the dance experience for both students and teachers!

I just wanted you to know how much I’ve enjoyed dance at your studio – from ballet to belly dance to work-out classes. I loved coming here after a grueling workday or on a quiet weekend. Your studio has been a highlight of my time in Durham!

I truly love your studio. You have created such a warm and friendly place to teach and to dance. You offer this community a rare and precious jewel, and I have been honored to be a part of it.

Your studio is a great dance studio and a wonderful learning space. It is the one studio I have attended that is not all about a show; it’s about having a fun time while dancing. All of the teachers are very well trained, and seem to love their jobs here. There are so many classes, and they are all fantastic! I recommend Ninth Street Dance to everyone I know!
