    The Moving Company on 29th St. is an awesome dance studio (used to be located in EGR). One of my daughters has danced there for 4 years and my younger daughter for just a year now. They have a great competition team and a great variety classes. The youngest class starts for children 2 years old and they love it! The instructors there are very knowledgable. I wish you would have their name in your list as well!
