What Our Families Say 

"Truly, I feel so incredibly grateful to have found you guys. My daughter has really blossomed as a dancer these past few years and it’s been wonderful to watch her learn more and more. Her progress is evident and is attributed to all the care and support you provide her, all while guiding her instruction.  You have crafted this incredibly inclusive and family-oriented environment for these kids and a safe space that feels like home. And my daughter has felt this way about your studio since day 1. "  - Karen

"TEPA is an outstanding studio for dance, theater, music and teams. It is highly recommended if you are in the northwest suburbs looking for your child to enhance or begin their interest in performing arts. My daughters have been dancing for 13 years and no other facility has been able to offer everything my girls desired. TEPA has it all, it is the complete package. The entire staff is extremely knowledgeable and each instructor is highly skilled in their field of expertise. My daughters have built lasting friendships and relationships with both their peers and instructors. While striving to reach their dancing goals they have grown as performers and have learned the importance of team work. We love being a part of the TEPA family. "  - Frannie
