A Chat with PDC The Studio
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Our instructors [are] nationally recognized for their teaching techniques, choreography and dance instruction. Their students have been awarded the top honors regionally and across the country, [and they’ve been] recognized for excellence for more than 20 years. So you know they’re doing something right!
What’s one tip for first-time students that will make them feel like veterans?
Class sizes are small, which provides individual attention. Our instructors are professional dancers and choreographers, so the quality of dance instruction is like no other studio in the Chicagoland area. Come in with a smile and you’ll leave feeling like a pro.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
PDC The Studio is the newly renovated extension of Perseverance Dance Company. Nationally acclaimed for more than 16 years for our showmanship, technique and awe-inspiring performances, we wanted to finally open our doors to the public. [Dancers can] train with this award-winning staff regardless of [their] age, from 12 months to 19 years.
What do you love most about your job?
As a teacher, watching young dancers enjoy themselves in class is a great feeling. Being able to see them through from babies to advanced level is extremely fulfilling. Our focus is to have dancers stay in our program for all the years they are in school as they develop poise and confidence.
