Lisa Kurzdorfer Gangloff

"My daughter danced at Eugenia's Dance Studio since Kindergarten. She developed beautiful dance skills that she currently uses on her college dance team. More importantly, it helped her build lifelong friendships, a strong work ethic and the understanding of being part of a team. Kindness and family were always a priority at Eugenia's. While the dances were always impressive, the acceptance and respect for each person who attends this studio was always the standard and what we experienced. We regularly miss our studio! E4E!!!"
