Lisa Matias Dance Centre

Lisa Matias Dance Center is a very special place. My daughter started there last fall when she was ten years old. She had very little experience with dancing and was in a class with girls who had been dancing for years. Under Lisa's instruction and care, she flowered into a graceful and accomplished dancer. She was never made to feel she wasn't as good as the other girls, and at the dance recital in June, no one could have picked her out as someone who was new to dance. I can't say enough positive things about this studio!!

My favorite place to be for the past 30 years, dancing is such a way to express yourself, with Miss Lisa as your instructor she helps you to learn while being comfortable with yourself, where your talents are embraced. Who wouldn't want that in their child's life!?! Register this fall I guarantee you and your child will be truly satisfied!

I have the privilege of saying I danced at Lisa Matias Dance Center for 20 years. She was and still is my mentor and a mentor to all her students. So many wonderful childhood memories are because of her and her studio. She took a little spit fire girl and made her blossom into a beautiful dancer/person! Thanks Miss Lisa!

My daughter started dancing with Lisa 8 years ago at age 3. I am constantly in awe of Lisa's ability to teach these young dancers about so much more than movement. She is inspiring, thoughtful and graceful. I can't imagine a more perfect role model for my little girl. As she continues through the years in dance I can see her confidence bloom and her body soar. Lisa chooses music, choreography and costumes with tremendous care and impeccable taste. The recital at the end of each year is a delight to attend, and I am usually in tears at some point during the day. Her pieces are glorious and lovely.

Lisa Matias Dance Centre changed my life. Lisa is a one-of-a-kind teacher and mentor who inspires everyone who has the good fortune to know her. Over my 11 years as her student, Lisa shaped who I am more than any other teacher I've ever had. She is enthusiastic, patient, wise, brilliant, loving, and hilarious. Lisa creates an atmosphere where students feel known and safe as well as challenged and ...pushed to be the best they can be. At the studio, you feel included in a unique community with its own vocabulary, references, jokes, and shared history. Lisa doesn't just help create great dancers; she helps to shape great people. I feel deeply grateful for having Lisa in my life and for my time dancing at the Lisa Matias Dance Centre.
