Why should someone new choose our studio over anyone else’s ?

A: A staff member had two new Mom’s ask this.   One did sign up and I can’t remember the other one one but I think they did too.  She told both of these family’s it was because of the teachers, and the way they interacted with the students.  She also told them that her daughter had been there since she was three or four until she was a freshman in college and that we credited Joyce with a lot of the success her daughter had.  She felt Joyce gave her daughter confidence, pride and discipline, not to mention all the great friends she met at the studio.

Q: W
hat do the students wear for baton?
