"NEW" 2013 TESTIMONIALS
Where to begin!! My oldest daughter Kasey started dancing at Studio 13 about a year ago. I am just simply amazed at the growth I have seen in her in that time. She adores her teachers Miss Joy and Miss Mel and has made so many friends. Not only is she becoming a beautiful dancer but is gaining a second family at the same time! This season she has had the proud honor of making the Project 13 Team. She is beyond thrilled to be a part of the team. The memories she is making are just priceless. My youngest Chloe started last summer at just 2 years old in the Tot/Combo class. The joy that this class brings her is indescribable! She asks all week long if it is Friday yet and time for her dance class! Thank you so much Laura, for providing such a welcoming place for kids to express their love for dance! Our family is extremely proud to be a part of the Studio 13 family

My daughter, Kendyl, takes Pre-Ballet at Studio 13 in East Simi. She absolutely loves it. She is already begging me to join the jazz class too. We love her teacher Miss Jessica. She is amazing! As an elementary school teacher, it is hard for me to sit still when I see poor class management, whether it is in a school or dance, so I am so impressed by the skill of the teachers at Studio 13. Miss Jessica is incredible with these girls. They are engaged during the entire class session. She keeps their attention and focus the whole time without ever rasing her voice. My daughter is learning so much and I am sure her new found love of ballet is because of her teacher! Thanks Miss Jessica! We can't wait to see their hard work in the recital. Michelle Berenson
Our 4 year old daughter, Emily, started at Studio 13 at age 2. This year she is on the Project 13 dance team. We have seen Emily develop confidence, poise, and a real passion for dance. Our family is very proud to be a part of the Studio 13 Family. The Carieri Family
We started at Studio 13 because of a friends referral and never looked back. We ventured into several dance studios to find a good fit and I have to say Studio 13 is the one for us. Everyone from Laura & Myrna at the front desks to the professional teaching staff makes this a top notch studio. When we started my daughter was a little uneasy with the level of talent here. Soon after taking classes with Miss Joy, Miss Mel, Mr JT and Miss Kristyn she feel in love with dance. They are truly amazing at everything they do. Some teachers are harder than others but the love and positive encourgement has made this our home! If you are looking for a competitive level of training with positive reinforcement come and check this place out.

When my daughter first expressed an interest in dance classes a few years ago, we looked into several studios in Simi. We were told, "sorry, we're not accepting new students right now", or "sorry, the parents don't want new kids in the group at this time". Then we found Studio 13. We were told "she can start today!" And that welcoming, positive attitude has not changed over the years. Everyone from the Studio Owner, to the teachers, to the other parents are friendly, helpful, and professional. My daughter started out trying one Hip Hop class and now loves Ballet, Lyrical, Jazz, and even made the competive Tap Team! She has learned amazing skills and disciplines in such a short period of time. The teachers are talented, qualified, and genuinely care about the kids. We are new to the world of Dance Team and Competitions, and EVERYONE at the Studio is more than patient with my endless questions, and need for advice. The level of talent coming out of this place is awe inspiring! Thank you Studio 13!

We joined Studio 13 Dance about a year ago. First off we wouldn't just call it a dance studio but more like Studio 13 Family. From the top to bottom there are nothing but great people here that truly care about the dancers and their families. The teachers build the kids talents and confidence levels everyday. Our daughter has grown so much in the last year thanks to all of the teachers, especially Joy, Kristyn and Mel. Project 13 is another great example of how this studio is here for everyone. Every dancer is there supporting each other at each competition. We Love Studio 13!!!!

Studio 13 provides a positive, comfortable, and fun environment! The teachers are extremely talented and encouraging! Our 6 year old daughter has been dancing at Studio 13 since she was 3 years old and this is her 2nd year on team. Our quiet little girl is gaining self confidence as she is improving her social skills and learning the importance of working together as a team! We are so amazed by everything she has learned in such a short amount of time! You have helped our daughter in so many ways! We are so proud to be a part of the Studio 13 Dance Family! Love, The Scott Family
Our daughter has been dancing with studio 13 from the day they opened. Our family continues to have a great experience with classes and teams. Studio 13 has cultivated Bailey's love for dance over the years. I can truly say I believe she gets the best training there. The studio families and kids are there because they want the best.The atmosphere and close family feeling is what makes all the time spent there enjoyable. The trophies and championships are just a added bonus to the good times we have with our dance family.
Since starting Studio 13, Becca has grown by leaps and bounds. Her love of dance has multiplied and she taps and dances her way through life, rather than walking. She looks forward to every class and can’t get enough of it. This year, being able to compete, and being part of Project 13, has given her such confidence as a dancer and she made so many great friends that share her love of dance and her commitment to working hard for her goals. Being part of team has been the BEST experience. She adores her teachers and the studio as a whole and feels like she’s part of a family. We feel so lucky and proud to belong to a studio filled with so much talent, creativity, and love of their students. Thank you for everything you do! We look forward to what's next and we're excited to be of Studio what?????13!!!!!!!
Love, The Perenchio Family
Studio 13 is better than ever!! Our daughter Sydney has been dancing at Studio 13 for 3 years. We came from a studio where Sydney was bored in her classes and was asking to quit dance all together. Thank goodness we found Studio 13!! Studio 13 has passionate and dedicated instructors with diverse dance backgrounds who themselves are amazing dancers. They are an inspiration to my daughter; they challenge her, nurture her, create drive to become the best she can be. Sydney loves to dance and she loves her studio! Studio 13 is like our second home and our second family and we are proud to be part of it!

Thank you SO much! I've been to other studios and I like Studio 13 the best!
"This is our 2nd year with the Studio 13 Family and our 1st year on Competition Team. My 5 year old daughter Addisynn looks forward to every class and every teacher. It is amazing to watch her grow into a strong dancer and a supportive team mate. Studio 13 not only teaches correct technique, discipline and structure, but support, team work and unity. Our family is lucky to be part of such an amazing dance family"
Studio 13 Dance is what we call Home away from Home because its a safe and friendly environment. We spend hours there learning every aspect of dance! Having instructors that project energy, creativity, drive, and love of dance keep my daughter hooked and always wants to be at the studio. With being a part of competitive dance this year its been great being apart of a team and having to work together. Excitement and the energy of cheering the studio at awards is so contagious! Thanks to the staff and the family support of others who I feel is apart of the overall picture! Studio what??? ....13!!! Kaitlyn Gilbreth and her mom
Studio 13 is an amazing dance studio. This past year my daughter Ilianna has shown significant improvement in her dance. She has become more confident and actually enjoys performing. Studio 13 dance teachers are not only experienced and very talented, but they are also patient and fun loving. They instill discipline, hardwork and pride into each one of the kids. Ms. Joy and Ms. Kristyn are excellent! Thank you Studio 13!!!

The Long Family
Ok, I would love to take credit for choosing Studio 13, but I have to give that to my daughter, Hayley, and I must say she chose wisely. What a wonderful experience these last few years have been, not only is the studio organized and professional, but family oriented and fun. My daughter has learned from wonderful teachers who encourage her to grow as a dancer and the level of her dancing has grown tremendously.
This is also our second year of being part of the Project 13 Team and it is a blast, not just by watching your own child on stage, but by watching all of the kid's hard work come to life. The high level of stage presence, choreography, song choice, technique and pure love of dance radiates from all the Project 13 Team teachers and dancers. Sincerely, The Kassel Family.
Three years ago when I walked into STUDIO 13 looking for a new “home” for my dancer, I knew right away that your studio was the place. Over the past 3 years my daughter Carlie has grown as a dancer in so many ways. The professional teachers at STUDIO 13 set high expectations for every dancer and challenge the girls to reach their highest ability level. This is her second year competing on the Project 13 Dance Team, and she absolutely loves it! Thank you Studio 13!
"We have been attending Studio 13 for the past three years and have watched our daughters' significant progress in their skills and confidence in dance. The instructors are top notch at their specialties and instill a hard work/hard play attitude with the kids that keeps them at the top of the competitions. From technique to teamwork to top-notch choreography, Studio 13 rocks!"
