My 3 year old daughter started taking the Preschool class in September. I can’t say enough about All That Jazz….Miss Debby is an excellent teacher and is absolutely terrific with the kids. My 3 year old daughter walks around the house striking a pose saying “Plie, Plie, Plie….Mommy watch….Plie Plie Plie“. Thanks to “All That Jazz” Sammy was bit by the dancing bug and it fills my heart with joy to see the smile on her face when she’s dancing. Thank you to Miss Debby and her student teachers Miss Stacey and Miss Michele.
New York Dance Jamz loves All That Jazz! Debby is such a positive force with her students. They are motivated, hard working, and willing to learn. It is such a pleasure to dance with her students, and we are looking forward to another wonderful workshop!

I had the wonderful opportunity to enjoy your recital in June. In the winter, Taylor Skwara, her mom and I went to see “The Lord of the Dance” together. It was there that Taylor invited me to come to see her dance. I am Taylor’s Physical Education teacher and of course I could tell immediately that Taylor was a dancer. I also had the pleasure of being able to see DJudelynn DiManche and Christine DeLay (also my students) dance as well in the show.
Having been a serious student of dance (many, many…) years ago and having danced many times at Kendal Hall myself while a student at Trenton State, it was a wonderful time for me to remember how dance has actually impacted my life. I had loving dance teachers who helped to teach me not only technique but also instilled a sense of confidence in movement for me. I was a teacher at the school and gained valuable experience that has helped me in my teaching career. One of my teachers passed away at an early age (but I still hold the appreciation for her creativity in my heart); however, I am still close with the other one. It is a relationship that will be forever important to me.
I am telling you all of this because I could see that you and your staff are the same loving, kind and gentle people who are influencing your students in a positive way. That was so evident when one of the student teachers came out on the stage during the afternoon performance and gracefully swooped up one of the younger students who just couldn’t find her way off of the stage. How precious that moment was!
It is easy to see that your students are well-trained dancers who have a passion for dance. I felt so much love coming from the audience as well. There definitely was a close family presence felt. I had a wonderful time that afternoon. Congratulations on your beautiful school and best of luck in the coming year!

I would like to take this time to thank you Miss Debby and your staff of well trained and experienced dancers ( Mr. Rashawn, Miss. Shannon, Miss Tiffany and Miss Mary to name a few) for their hard work and dedication in helping to make All That Jazz one of the top dance schools in the Trenton area.
When my daughter Jasmine first arrived at All That Jazz 5 years ago, she wasn’t enthusiastic about attending dance school, because the school (that shall remain nameless) that she had previously attended, wasn’t as interesting for kids her age. It couldn’t capture her passion for dance like All That Jazz has.
My husband and I noticed the difference in Jasmine’s attitude and skills after only a few months of attending All That Jazz. She never wanted to miss class, and in addition to the classes she already had she wanted to sign up for more classes.
All That Jazz has given our daughter Jasmine the confidence and stamina she lacked. She gives her all when she dances and most importantly she enjoys herself as she dances and you can see it in her eyes.
Jasmine has already exceeded my expectations of her as a dancer. I really didn’t think she had it in her to dance so well after witnessing her first 3 years at the other dance school. To my surprise she may now fulfill one of her dreams of becoming a great dancer or choreographer. Thanks to your encouragement and direction she is well on her way. She already has one play under her belt (playing a party guest & Angel in the Moscow Ballet Great Russian Nutcracker).
I’m very sure that if she continues her training under you and your staff she will be blessed with the chance of making her dream a reality and maybe someday you’ll receive a ticket in the mail to come and watch her on Broadway.
I love All That Jazz! I’ve been involved with the studio for 8 years now and I would never consider going anywhere else! Miss Debby along with the other teachers are the best in the area. It’s a great place for kids to get involved with dance while making life-long friendships and building self-esteem. All That Jazz is the best around, I LOVE IT!
I love dancing at All That Jazz because I learn new dances all the time. I meet new people and make friends. Dance is fun at All That Jazz. Theteachers care when you need extra help. I love dancing at All That Jazz.
We have been involved with All That Jazz for over 6 years now and couldn’t recommend a better place for children to become active in dancing. Miss Debby and her staff are the best! Both of my girls self-confidence has grown and they can’t wait for dance class to begin again this fall!
My time at All That Jazz was a very special one. I made lots of friends and had many good times. I learned many valuable and fun things like how to do a Russian jump, a fan kick and how to express my love for dance through inner passion. I may not have been great when I started there, bit I learned fast and when I had to move out of state I felt like I was leaving my family. Miss Debby and all my other teachers taught me things that I will never forget. The bond I had with all my friends still remains. I felt like I had to take all that they taught me and put it to good use. Well, I took what they taught me and like I said, I had to use it wisely. When I did, I made it onto my new school’s dance team. All That Jazz is the perfect dance school for anyone and everyone.

I would like to share a story about my daughter Lidia M. Soto. In her first year at All That Jazz they had a show at an old folks home and Lee ran off stage in terror due to not having enough confidence to dance in front of a lot of people. Well, now after 7 years with Miss Debby and the ever so talented staff of teachers, and student teachers she is now a dedicated member of the talented and award winning competition team and Pre-Professional class. I know that many people think you only come here to dance, but that just wasn’t the case for my daughter. She has overcome shyness and has developed a self-confidence not matched by many children her age. Miss Debby does EVERYTHING for these kids as if they were truly her own. She has developed friendships that will last forever. Thank you to everyone at All That Jazz Dance Academy for helping my daughter see that she truly CAN do it.
I love All That Jazz Dance Academy! It’s relaxing to dance there. When I was little, I didn’t go to All That Jazz; I went to a different dance school. I didn’t like to dance there. I would never want to go, I would cry. Since I changed to All That Jazz I wanted to go every day, that’s how much I love it. Once my friends and family watched me dance they wanted to go there. All That Jazz allows me to express myself in dancing. All That Jazz is my second home from home. Everyone is my family there even people I don’t know. The teachers there teach me moves I don’t know, and then I practice at home. The next week I’m better at it. I love to dance, especially at All That Jazz. I would never trade it for anything else in the world.
We attended the “Parent’s Choice” show at Robbinsville High School on Saturday to see our cousin’s daughter Jessie Sheppard. I just wanted to drop you a note to let you know that we have never attended a better dance recital. The music, costumes, choreography, etc. (the whole package!) were absolutely fabulous! The Dancing Dads were a perfect touch at the end of the show! It is obvious how hard everyone works at your studio! Keep it up!
