What Parents Have to Say About Anita Ehrler's Dance Extensions

"My daughter's experience at your dance school prompts me to take a moment to thank you. Although she has only been there for a year, she has delved into the world of dance with enthusiasm and joy. I know this new found love has arisen out of the guidance and motivation that you and your teachers have instilled in her. Even thought we must move to another state, I doubt that we will find a place comparable to yours. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for a wonderful year of movement."

"I could not have asked for a better Mother's Day present than to see my girls on that stage this weekend and all I can say is thank you for all that you do."

"This is the best dance recital I have ever seen."

“Anita Ehrler’s Dance Extensions has truly been a part of our lives. For the past twelve years, four of our daughters have been taught by some of the greatest teachers. The owners Anita Ehrler and Frank Mastrocola are two of the most professional and sought after teachers/choreographers of the area. Bringing to classes their knowledge of the Performing Arts Industry. We are proud and honored to have our daughters attending one of the most prestigious performing arts school in the area."

“AEDE has not only made my daughters dancers, but has also provided them with friendships that last beyond their time at the studio. Being dancers has given them both self-confidence and an understanding of the word commitment”

“My daughter has been a dance student in AEDE since she was five years old. She had previously attended a different dance school for two years. In comparison, there is NO COMPARISON! At AEDE students are encouraged to strive to be the best they can be, but the philosophy of the school is primarily to develop positive self-esteem. In the ten years that Jenna has attended AEDE I have seen her grow to be a wonderful dancer, but most importantly, she has grown to be a self-assured, confident individual. Much of this I attribute to her positive experiences at AEDE.”

“My daughters and I have been involved with Anita Ehrler’s Dance Extensions since they opened in Park Ridge 17 years ago. We have all experienced many wonderful moments there—dancing, singing, acting, playing an instrument and making friends. Participating in the creative arts on any level is very rewarding and highly recommended. Having a talented staff and artistic directors who stay involved is the icing on the cake.”

" I can’t begin to convey the positive effect Anita Ehrler’s Dance Extensions has had on my daughter’s life. Her talents as a dancer have been nurtured by the wonderful staff of teachers for the many years she has been there. I have found Anita and Frank and their staff to be very accommodating in helping us solve scheduling conflicts so my daughter could take advantage of all the classes she likes. Now as a company member she has blossomed not only into a wonderful dancer, but more importantly a confident, disciplined, and well rounded person."
