We are pleased to be using the Twinkle Star program at The Dance Zone this year! We have found it to be a well-rounded, effective program for teaching technique to young dancers in a fun, accessible way! We have about 10 teachers teaching the Twinkle Stars program in over 50 recreational classes, for ages 2-10.
We are excited about the cohesiveness that the program allows us to offer at our studio. It has been a good tool for opening a dialogue for the teachers, so that we can discuss what and how we are teaching in our classes and make sure we are all on the same page. Our teachers have been pleased to find that most of the techniques and skills are things they were already doing and teaching, just presented in a new way. That has given them confidence in the syllabus as they have embarked on a new program. As the teachers become more familiar with the program, they are finding ways to use the program effectively, while still retaining their uniqueness as an individual instructor.
It has been a good sales tool for the front desk as well, as they are able to explain to parents that every teacher in each class will be covering the same technique and the same syllabus. It helps when a parent can't get their first choice of teacher, to be able to explain that the other teachers will be teaching very similar things.
It's nice to have fun, age-appropriate music and cute combos already prepared for teachers! The warm ups have given teachers a good place to start, with a base level of technique and moves that they can initially introduce. The classroom schedule and breakdown works great, and some of the ideas for the youngest dancers, such as Twinkle Bears and hula hoops, have been a huge success! Keep the videos and good ideas coming!

As a studio director for the past 20 years, I found that the task of successfully hiring, and more importantly training, the 'mystery of the preschool classroom'to be a great challenge. In 2012, I met Tiffany Henderson, and Twinkle Bear at All That Glitters and Gold in Philadelphia and my world began to transform! I love to teach babies and the Twinkle Star Program has provided me with an organized system for training young teachers, by providing the knowledge (and example) they need to be successful with dancers ages 2-6. I have slowly replaced my children’s dance curriculum and school uniforms with everything Twinkle Star. The media packages and Facebook advertising make online marketing, printed marketing and brochures a breeze. After attending Philadelphia Freedom in 2014, I set up my StoreFront on CostumeManager.com, produced my first Nutcracker, began using online ticketing, added a Daddy Daughter Dance to my June recitals and sold all my costumes through CostumeManager.com. After NOLA in 2015, I set up a GTM Team Store, switched to The Studio Director Software, added Fire It Up Fitness, a Dancin’ Holiday Magic Showcase, have doubled enrollment for Daddy Daughter, and am gearing up for summer camp! My 2016 registration for Daddy Daughter was my first online registration experience– can’t wait for summer and fall. I enjoy Tiffany’s monthly conferences, and am looking forward to Vegas in August! In 2017, LeRoux will transition to a year-round program.
I am really proud to be a Twinkle Star Program studio and know that this program has provided me a new level of organization and time management that I was missing! Oh, and CostumeManager.com – words cannot describe how that has changed my life! I always loved my job, but I am happier these days because I have found better ways to manage my studio and my time - and my kids love that too!
Thank you!

Since subscripting to the Twinkle Star program in 2013 we have been extremely successful. I was able to hire 3 more employees and expand my business from 3 rooms to 5 rooms during our busy hours. We the help of the twinkle star starter kit, curriculum, and guidance we opened a new location and went from 0 students to 53 in 30 days. It is easy to train new hires with the curriculum and videos. We can assigned choreography to our instructors for our shows and costumes. It is so much less stressful as a studio owner. Our revenue has doubled with all the ideas, curriculum, camps, father daughter, share the love marketing, etc. As a studio owner I don’t have the time to come up with graphics and camps year after year. Graphic designers are expensive and that is just one extra thing. I am very happy to have the TSD gallery to choose from over 50 graphics. I feel that Tiffany and her team are motivating and keep me on track with monthly subscriber meetings and emails to remind us of upcoming ideas/updates. It is easy to find them and post it and be done within 5 minutes.
I have attended two conferences and they have been extremely helpful and worth it. I was able to take my 3 of my instructors to New Orleans and they loved it. I recommend subscribing to the program if you haven’t already.

I have been so thankful for Twinkle Star dance not only has it helped increase my revenue, it has increased our professionalism with dress code, website images, marketing images and it has allowed me to have a network with successful, supportive and passionate women! I am on the road to pay myself this next season which has not happened in 4 years!

Since implementing the Twinkle Star Dance™ program in my studio in September of 2014 my student enrollment ages 2-6 has increased by 35%. Before having the Twinkle Star Dance program I taught all of the age 2-6 classes. I did not feel confident in giving these classes to another teacher fearing that they would not know what to teach, how to present the material, be sensitive to children's feelings/needs, etc. This year I was able to give some of these classes to other teachers because I know that we are all teaching the same material and running classes in the same efficient manner. I would recommend the Twinkle Star Dance™ program to any studio owner who is looking to have a well rounded educational and fun program in their studio. The students love the upbeat music, flow of the class and learning new material on a constant basis!

I attended the Twinkle Star Dance™ Annual Conference last year and I couldn't wait to get home and implement everything I had learned. It is amazing to see how excited and energized my staff was about having all of that material at their fingertips! Now I know our classrooms will all be ran the same, the advancement and enjoyment of the students in both the Twinkle Stars™ and Showstars™ program is unbelievable! Word is spreading that we have something new, fun, and unique in our area that is flooded with dance studios. All of our classes filled by January and we are now starting waiting lists for 3 new classes! I would highly recommend attending the workshop with your staff. This is truly the best investment I have ever made in my 26 years as a studio owner. Thank you to Tiffany for offering this program and helping our studio grow in enrollment and in technique.

Without Twinkle Star Dance™ curriculum (videos) my studio would have closed down. My husband has Cancer and I had to depend on my ladies dance class to run my studio, due to my absence with my husband in caregiving and doctor's appointments. A BIG THANK YOU TO TWINKLE STAR DANCE FOR SAVING AND KEEPING MY STUDIO GOING.

The Twinkle Star Dance™ program for dance studio owners is absolutely Amazing! As a new studio owner, the class curriculum and songs used for the program helps our dancers from age 2-6 to learn great technique as well as motor skills. This program also helps Ellis Dance Studio create a warm fun friendly environment where the dancers are learning non-stop. In addition, the Twinkle Star Dance™ Annual Conference last year that helped me and my staff tremendously. I have told all my friends that are studio owners about this outstanding program geared to help your dance studio reach unlimited heights financially as well as establish rapport in your community. Their customer support and staff is #1 !! Couldn't be more happier with this program!! Thank you for all that you do!!

We are standardizing our most important classes (the little ones) and providing them with a solid foundation that they can grow on. We know what each other is teaching in classes and I (as the owner) know that what the students are getting in classes even if I'm not there to watch teachers. The Twinkle Star Dance™ program really keeps the dancers engaged and I have heard many times from parents in the last month, "Wow, that was a really good class.'

My experience with Twinkle Star Dance™ has been so positive!! I love how all of my teachers follow the same amazing curriculum and it gives is something to firmly stand behind when we talk about the class and the growth of the students. We love this program and are finding it to be a well-rounded, effective program for teaching technique to young dancers in a fun, accessible way! It gives the studio more cohesiveness as dancers start out young and travel up in level as well as age. The program takes techniques and concepts that kids can grasp and makes them easy to learn. It’s fun, age appropriate activities, music, & combos. It has a good schedule and the breakdowns work great. We believe fully in the curriculum!

We love the Twinkle Star Dance™ program, resources, marketing information and the incredible staff that is always willing to help with anything! We love the network of other studio owners and teachers that we share ideas and information with. The program has made it possible for us to be opening our second location.

My name is Kelsey Burke, and I am the owner of The PEAK School of Dance in Colorado Springs, CO. My husband and I opened the studio in July 2015, just a mere six weeks after having our first child. We are 7 months into our first year, with a student base of 80 dancers, and new registrations daily. This would not have been possible without the help of Twinkle Star Dance and Costume Manager. I had the pleasure of working for Tiffany and Paul Henderson for almost three years, where I learned the TSD curriculum and even choreographed for the program. Opening the studio from the ground up meant that I would be teaching the majority of the classes with one other instructor on my staff. I would also be doing all of the training, admin, and costuming. With resources like TSD and CM, I manage to do all of this and have time to spend with my family.

Purchasing the Twinkle Star Dance™ curriculum and choreography has enabled me to spend more time with my students in classes instead of so much preparing for class. I've noticed the retention of the dancers has increased tremendously and their progress is coming along quicker because of the repetition of skills and I'm not stressed about coming up with choreography. If I need my assistant to take over the class it is structured so that no matter if I'm there or not they are getting the same material.

In 2010 my sister and I followed our dreams and opened the doors to our very own dance studio. Having our own children at home combined with the amount of time and work that goes into running a business quickly became a reality. In 2013 we attended the Twinkle Star Dance conference in Las Vegas and put everything we had into the Twinkle Star Dance Program. We left the conference with a refueled passion for teaching dance. Since then we have more than tripled our students, have a continued waiting list for our classes, and upgraded our studio from 400 square feet to 5000 square feet! This program has done wonders for our business and introduced us to an amazing group of teachers/studio owners who share the same love for dance. Thank you Twinkle Star Dance for changing the future of our studio!

Twinkle Star Dance™, has brought a clean fresh image to my program in addition to an outstanding curriculum. I have always had a good baby program, but I had gaps in my timeline during class. I now, can keep attention span of a 2 year old for an entire 30 minutes, from start to finish. I have use the program to grow a student base who will grow in my studio for years to come! I do not regret one ounce of committing to this wonderful program!

I have always been the person who isn't sure about change and wasn't sure about the Twinkle Star Dance program at first but I knew we needed something so we had contrinuity in our preschool classes. We half implemented it in our first year and I packed classes thinking "they will drop". Lol. I was wrong the program was so effective, the packed classes remained and they still are here today 4 years later. We now use the program at both of our locations and it's amazing.

Define Dance & Arts Studio
The Twinkle Star Dance program gives our studio a more refined definition of what we have to offer to our younger students. We don't just tell our inquires that we offer combo classes for the young student. Every studio in the community offers combo classes for the young child. The Twinkle Star Dance program separates our studio from the studio down the street. Families walk into our studio asking to hear more about our Twinkle Star dance program. All too often a dance studio hires trained dancers to teach, but often overlook the aspect of training the teacher in how to teach. Twinkle Star Dance gives our teachers the tools that help solidify the teaching in every Twinkle Star classroom. Parents feel more confident enrolling their child at our studio, knowing that all of our teachers are trained in a curriculum designed, and developed specifically for the young child. As a studio owner, I can feel confident in what I'm providing for the teachers, as well as being confident in the instruction being delivered to the students in class.

Twinkle Stars has completely changed the dance program at my Performing Arts Studio. My studio began as a Vocal/Musical Theatre Studio. We soon realized that dance was imperative for the entertainment business as well as Musical theatre and later introduced dance into our curriculum. I had no problem finding qualified dance instructors however keeping these young aspiring dancers, retraining new ones, adding teachers soon became a struggle. I am NOT a dancer, therefore I had to hire instructors based on their past experience and resume. Some teachers were well loved and others did not know how to instill a love for dance within these little ones. The twinkle star curriculum gave me the ability not only to provide an exciting/fun learning environment for young dancers, but it gave our baby dance program stability, consistency & a platform for future teachers as the program continues to grow. It gave me, as the owner, confidence in knowing that every teacher/class was being offered the same curriculum and level of excitement. It has become the base of our entire dance program because our Twinkle Star dancers & their parents LOVE this program, & those students who develop a love/passion for dance will hopefully continue for years to come.
The precious tutus & bears make the girls feel like princesses & the observers ooh & awe & the learning tools such as hula hoops have proven to enhance the child's development as well as keep them engaged. Every aspect of the twinkle Stars curriculum was so well thought out & has not only helped our dance program but the concept has provided something to learn & apply to each of my departments and has helped me become a better business owner all together.

We were missing the mark in the 2-6 year old bracket in our town. We barely had enough students to hold classes. Now they are our most popular classes and have brought in so much energy new families and new teachers. It has saved the future of my studio and made us a more well rounded studio catering to all ages! It's put us back on the map and helped make me more revenue than I even imagined!

Twinkle Star Dance has helped me gain my life back. It has brought structure and consistency to my studio. Tiffany taught me to focus more on my recreational kids. Two years ago we had 199 students. 95 were under the age of 6. Today we have 450 students. 275 are under the age of 6.
The TSD program allows me to know what is going on in all my kid classes. The parents LOVE it! They are amazed at how much their child is learning and appreciate all the holiday dances and observation days. I'm also amazed at how quickly the kids are picking up the material.
My teachers all enjoy using the program. It is so easy to use. They can access the videos when it is convenient for them. The only regret I have is not implementing TSD sooner. A BIG thanks to Tiffany and Amanda for helping us get to where we are today.

We absolutely love our Twinkle Star Dance program. It has brought such joy to the teachers, the students, and the parents looking in. I am amazed how the dancers come into class, without their parents, put their bag under the benches and go to their hula hoop and sit down with a bear. I taught 3's back in my 20's and 30's. Now I'm only teaching adult tap, but I assist my daughter on Friday afternoons and love being with our Tots. Someone slipped one time and called them Tater Tots---I said as long as they don't grow up to be Couch Potatoes! Thank you for inspiring us with your conference, updates, suggestions and being available to reach when we need you.

Twinkle Star Dance has given me the tools and insight necessary to really implement a well thought out curriculum and marketing plan. Before TSD I wasn't as structured and I never had 2-year olds. Now I feel much more confident and enjoy my younger classes more. In addition to weekly classes my summer programs are much more professional and well planned and consequently full! I really needed a revival after 15 years and I'm confident I will grow this coming 2017|18 Season.

The Twinkle Star program has been great for training our inexperienced teachers what to teach the little ones. In addition the Twinkle Babies class (2-3yrs) curriculum has been very influential and helped our teachers, parents and dancers immensely.

We have been paying for Twinkle Stars for years but have not implemented the program until this year. After implementing the programs, there is a buzz of excitement in our lobby. The kids love the Twinkle Bear story and the parents love that their dancers are engaged in class, but also excited when they come out to the parents. It made my day when the parents were invited into class and participate in a holiday dance. The joy on the parents' faces was unforgettable.

I attended the Twinkle Star Dance workshop at Revolution in January. I was using Twinkle Star but not fully like I should. I realized how much I was missing out by not using it in every class. I pay for a lot of subscriptions and was only using the recital choreography. Once I returned from the workshop I have been implementing so much more into my classes. The bears, I just bought the book and twinkle dust. The parents have really been impressed and I will be changing the names of the classes for my next registration. Love everything!

At first the parents were a bit skeptical of the sparkle dresses. However, parents now see the practicality. We use these for off site informal performances and parents love that. The classes are more cohesive and it has a created an atmosphere of learning. Children love the structure of these classes and overall behave better. They know where to stand, where to go to and when the class is finished. I like being able to have a sub come in to cover my classes and they are able to do everything I do in class. I also like that we are able to keep our personality and some special themes such as our My Little Pony and Pirate/Princess months, yet still follow the format. We are going to be introducing more classes come spring.

Absolutely love the resources and support from Twinkle Star Dance and was so impressed with the course I took in Vegas last summer. I took a chance being a Canadian studio and I am so pleased I am the very first in my area to have attended and implemented this program. I am extremely grateful to be a twinkle star dance member and speak of the program with the highest regard and have recommended it to many of my friends in the states.
