I have been extremely happy with the service my children and I have received from West End Performing Arts. The staff have been extremely accommodating to meet the individual needs of my children, and as a result they have shown great improvement in a very short time. I too like the fact that my children are encouraged to set achievable goals, as it is a great motivator. They have a beautiful new studio and very inspiring teachers, and as a new family we have been made very welcome by all. The fee structure, billing and receipting has been clear and accurate in my experience. I give West End Performing Arts the highest recommendation possible.
I can't recommend WestEnd Performing Arts highly enough!!! The dedication shown to ALL students by the teachers is above and beyond. The students always seem to have fun along with learning, no matter what they are doing in the way of classes. I certainly enjoy spending time in the waiting area with the other parents - it is a great family atmosphere and one I'm proud to be associated with.
I could not disagree more with the last review!!! We have had nothing but a positive experience with WestEnd. My daughter has thrived at the school. We have been to many other schools before this one, and this is the first school that we feel she has improved and found a passion for dance. We have never had a problem with invoices. Maybe you need to check your emails a bit more carefully, as ours invoices always come before term starts.
