“Studio L is absolutely an inspiring Dance company!! My 5 year old daughter has been dancing at Studio L for the past 3 years. This year was her first “Superstar” Company class and she LOVED performing at the competitions. My daughter had an infectious smile and laugher while performing on stage- She definitely had a Blast!! The teachers, Nicole and Jaime, for the younger classes provide a warm confident supportive foundation for the love of dance. They’re great mentors for our young princesses aspiring to grow and develop within the dance world. The remaining teachers including the owners, Kelley and Danielle, strive for the best in every child. Studio L is not only a great dance company- but they provide a sense of responsibility to our community. Through different charity works, walks, and fundraisers…dancers mature in body and soul. “No one is born a dancer. You have to want it more than anything”, stated Mikhail Baryshnikov…. It’s when your mind forgets the dance but your body doesn’t!! Studio L provides the foundation for the young toddlers and motivates each developing dancer to reach their potential! I’m definitely proud to say I’m a Studio L Dance Mom!”
“Studio L is an amazing dance studio. My daughter is so inspired by the hard work and dedication of the dancers who call Studio L their home. By joining this studio, she has been given an incredible jump start on her journey through the world of dance.”
“My daughter loves dancing at Studio L. The best part as a mother is seeing the smile on her face when she leaves dance class or gets off stage after her recital or competition. Although she’s still young, her confidence has also grown by leaps and bounds.”
“My daughter learned so much more in one year when The Killer Larkin gals took over, than the previous two years.
The transformation that Melina has gone through in this last year has been an astonishing surprise. Her moves, dedication, passion and confidence are due in large part of Kelley and the entire staff at Studio L. There’s not a week that goes by that Kelley doesn’t stop tell her what a great job she’s doing. That recognition & support is so crucial to children as they are learning their craft.
After this past recital, I picked up the phone and thanked Kelley and her staff for not only putting together an outstanding recital but I thanked her for helping my daughter blossom in to the wonderful little performer she has become today but; more importantly, I thanked her for always encouraging her to keep trying harder. As a mother, that is priceless.”

“Studio L is the best dance studio in the area. When my daughter was 4 we tried out a few places but Studio L was hands down the best. I loved that I could watch my daughter on the TV screen when she was tiny and see how happy she was in class. If your child (male OR female) wants a place with excellent and loving teachers as a fun hobby, there is a program at Studio L for you; alternatively, if your child is interested in competitive dancing and is serious about wanting to be a dancer, this is the place to go because they are the best. Most kids start out just wanting a fun hobby and eventually get more serious – why start at a studio that can’t accommodate your child’s needs as they grow? The kids adore the teachers and there is a bond between the younger dancers and the teenagers that is precious. The teenage dancers are excellent role models for the younger kids in terms of discipline around dancing, time management to complete schoolwork and also through the (totally optional) philanthropy projects organized through Studio L. Prices seem pretty similar everywhere so you might as well get the best training and lifetime friendships for your dollar.”
“We love Studio L. My daughter started 2 years ago and would spend all of her time there if she could. The positive atmosphere that is provided by the amazing teaching staff is irreplaceable. They are a very well rounded studio that offers something for everyone. I and my daughter have been extremely happy with our decision to dance with the Studio L family.”
“My 16 year old daughter has been dancing at Studio L for fourteen years. The studio has become a second home, and the staff and her peers there are her extended family. She has been dancing in the nationally acclaimed and award winning Studio L Company for ten years. Through the dedication of the well trained staff and her perseverance she has grown into a well-rounded and talented dancer. She has received many exciting and fun professional and charitable opportunities through Kelley and Danielle Larkin’s Talent Management Company. The studio caters to the recreational dancer as well as the competitive/preprofessional dancer. There is a special place at this studio for every level of dancer. Studio L also offers classes in acting, singing, gymnastics, and adult fitness programs.”
“My daughter has been dancing at the studio since she was 2. She was always a recreational/ weekly dancer who loved dance and was fascinated with competition team. This is her second year in company and she loves the studio so much that she would sleep there if I would let her. The staff and dancers have become a second family to both of us. Kelley Larkin is a teacher that does push her students to be their best, the dancers are driven and want to compete at the highest level they can. The dedication of her students can only be matched by that of the teachers and parents. If you want your child to have the absolute best dance experience and education, please come check out the studio. The only thing I should warn you about is they may become addicted like my daughter.”
“Coming to Studio L from another studio, I was very nervous for my daughter about fitting in and building new friendships and embracing a new dance family. Kelley, Danielle and the Staff have made the transition a very easy one, for that I am grateful.
I see the admiration in her eyes, she looks forward to Saturday mornings and most of all she loves dancing again. At only age 4 last year she hated to go to dance, she was afraid and sad. This year, Studio L continued to encourage her and now age 5 she loves dancing again. She tells me all the time she wants to be like her dance teachers.”
