"Arts North changed my life. The growth I experienced as not only a dancer but all-encompassing artist could not have been achieved anywhere else. This one of a kind studio is home to teachers who are as hungry to share their love of the arts as the students are to learn. Some of my happiest memories were spent in the studio and the challenging and beautiful work got me through some trying times in my life and I owe a debt of gratitude that can never be repayed."
- Skyler Slywchuk (Student Alumni)
"Arts North has really given me a chance to grow on a personal level as well as a professional level. And I definitely recommend this studio to anyone who is thinking of pursuing dance after high school due to the variety of techniques taught. I also find that the amount of passion and creativity that the owner, Ashley Burton, and the other teachers put into everything is infectious and pushes you to try as hard as you can."
Arts North has changed who I am and has removed my anxiety of performing and has made me a lot more outgoing! The feeling of relief to no longer be afraid has allowed me to focus on my technique and I couldn't have done it without my incredible teachers! I feel so comfortable there and I don't ever want to stop growing or dancing. Arts North teachers are so dedicated to giving you their time and knowledge to open doors in your future! The Arts North environment is so comfortable because it is a place where you concentrate on yourself in a non-competitive and positive environment. When I'm not at home or school, you'll find me at Arts North and no where else! I recommend this studio whole heartedly to absolutely anyone!"
