This was hands down, the best studio I could have ever wished to stumble upon! Jamie and her family are absolute rockstars! The effort and care that goes into each class, the way Jamie works with the kids, and the will to make the events so spectacular, have made it impossible to consider another studio for my family. My 1st grader went in there with no knowledge, never having choreographed or anything, and she can still perform her dances as though she just finished class. That is amazing to me and I’m proud every time she busts a move! And grateful for all the hard work Breakout put into it!
