move to your own pulse



Michella and I want to thank you so much for all that you are doing for my two daughters. Regan has performed in a number of recitals from two previous well-respected studios over the years. None of them could touch the quality of this one.....hands down! We were simply blown away! The quality of the choreography, set, costuming, overall production, story-line (a first for us), and the dancers’ execution was better than anything that we’ve seen. We are so impressed with the professionalism and organization. Even the little tots were impressive. Having an advanced student or teacher dance with them made it so much better for the young students as well as the audience...great idea! The teacher participation was obviously a challenge for even the more advanced students in a positive way. One could feel their extra energy in an effort to keep up with “the master.” Congratulations on your growing success! Once again....thank you.

Kudos to you! The show was AMAZING! I can’t wait to see what next year is all about! We had a really great year and I’m so happy to see that you are growing in numbers and are able to fi nally expand! EXCITING!...A friend that I saw at the Sat. performance goes to the same church I do and she was there because her neighbor’s daughter was in the show. I told her, “you are going to LOVE it!” At the end of the show I ran into her on my way to get Evie and she said she cried and she doesn’t even have a child in the show! She said it was the best recital she had ever been to! She does have a 2yr. old, so I told her keep thinking about it and when she’s old enough, she would love The Pulse, too! Once again, you rocked! The students rocked! The staff rocked! The volunteers rocked! I can’t wait to do it all again! Thanks again for a kickin’ show!

Wow, what a wonderful performance! I was thoroughly entertained the whole time. I can’t believe that you all put together a performance of that caliber, and you do it every year! That’s a lot of hard work and dedication. We are so excited to be a part of such an amazing dance studio. Thank you!

I just wanted to tell you that I thought the recital was awesome and in my opinion, the best recital that I have been to in Jamie’s years of dancing. The tap dancing was incredible. I was amazed at how much improvement Jamie made this past year. Thanks for all you guys

do. You are the best.

Cindy Hafenstine


What a wonderful production! This was our first year with you and I couldn’t have been happier with your dance instruction and production. It was well organized and beautifully choreographed. Most importantly to me (as a has-been dancer from my younger years)

your dancers are clearly well-trained. Congratulations on your hard work and success!

This was Emma’s fi rst year in dance class…she just turned 4 a few weeks ago. I wanted to send you all my sincerest Thank You! for all your hard work on the recital. My whole family was incredibly impressed by the quality of the show, the story, the music, and most of all the talented dancers you have been training! Even my Dad (typical grandpa) who had to get to work for a job….he couldn’t leave. He was glued to his seat, and I could tell he enjoyed every minute of it! He and my mother were so complimentary of the show...I could tell they were expecting the same ol’ dance recital like I used to have as a child and were more than pleasantly surprised. Anyway, I also was glued to my seat through both performances. I really appreciate that you all perform with the students and share your wonderful talents with us all. And Brandon….words cannot express how talented you are to put such a production together! I am so proud of you

all and to have had Emma’s experience with you all for her first year. The show was fantastic!

This recital by far has meant the most to me and will have forever changed me as a dancer. This year having the role as the Innkeepers Daughter was honestly the highlight of my year. I absolutely LOVED working with the pre-schoolers and seeing their smiling faces and guiding them on stage. I would work with the little ones again in a heartbeat! Because of Route 66, I became closer to all of the competition dancers. I made new friends, learned new steps, and made memories to last a lifetime. I can’t wait to be on one of your competition teams this year and I promise I will work harder than ever! Three years ago I had no intentions of making dance a huge part of my life. Now, dance is all I want to do in life! During dress rehearsal I had the opportunity to watch the three friends dance from the first row. That moment I was inspired to become an even better dancer for this year in hopes of one day dancing on stage just like they did. Thank you for the friends, confi dence, and determination I now have. I hope I have this opportunity in your next outstanding recital!

I just wanted to say thank you for a wonderful production and all your hard work! You guys did a fabulous job and I can’t imagine how many hours you put in this last week to make everything come together. I hope you are spending this next month before summer session begins resting and relaxing because you all deserve it!! Thanks again!

Jennifer Devero


We thoroughly enjoyed recital weekend. I was a dancer growing up- and I was very impressed with the production. The choreography and music were very entertaining. The combo dances were super cute with music that tugged the heartstrings!! It has been a great first year for us at The Pulse. We look forward to next year! Thanks to all of you for your hard work! Ellen loved every second of it!

Maribeth Colombo


Bravissssimo..............what a beautiful performance

Gustavo Restrepo


Excellent job!!! Incredibly creative and expressive! Thanks for all your hard work!!! Blessings and relax!

Cathy Gamble


Thanks to you all as well. What a show!! Selena’s Godparents said that they felt like they were in Branson, MO watching a show. My whole family was in awe! Thanks again.

Lisa Hunter


The thanks go to you guys! We have never experienced such an amazing result in all the years our family has been attending recitals. The creativity and organization involved was truly remarkable. Thank you for devoting so much time and energy into our children. We, too, are looking forward to next year! Congratulations to everyone at the Pulse!

The Hickok Family


Congratulations for leading such an amazing production! I invited my neighbors and did not get to see them Saturday night since I was volunteering. I received a call on Sunday morning and they were awed by what they saw. They “did not expect that level of quality in a local production” and both of them cannot wait for their 2 year olds to get old enough to start. Thanks again for providing this wonderful venue for our children. All the best for the next year.

Our only experience with a dance recital previously was our 4 yr old niece. We basically went to watch her and then wanted to skip out. We didn’t care about seeing everyone else’s kids just dance and obviously neither did anyone else because there were people talking, moving about etc. What you did was not just a dance recital and it was entertaining watching everyone else because there was substance to it all…It reinforced to us that we have Tyler in the right place for dance... I had made a comment to Tyler about how cool it was to watch Curtis and how he danced with power, even in the most simplest of moves. Tyler shared with me that Curtis had talked to him about making his movements his own and not just imitating the girls. That is the type of message that Tyler can now take with him forever…Thanks for all your hard work and wow what you did with Tyler, we couldn’t have been any prouder... the fact that he wants to

continue tells it all.

Sunday afternoon both of my girls took their recital CD put it in our main home sound system and proceed to do their whole routine. Then they did it again and again plus have done it at least 2 more times over the last two days. Thank you for the wonderful time and yes

you all have made quite an impression on my 6 and almost 5 year old! The best feedback I heard was from my mom saying even if her granddaughters were not in the show she would have come back for the Sunday show, she was so impressed.

Cathlin Mauer


I’ve performed in a lot of recitals and I’ve seen many recitals as well. This was an outstanding show. I can’t wait to get the DVD and see it again! Your studio staff is exceptional and I can tell how much love and sweat you put into it. You’re only going to grow and get bigger and better. We’re so happy to be a part of it! We’re looking forward to another great year!
