    1. PBK Berest Dance Center - Port Washington Dance Studio
      Overall Rating:

      Superior instruction in a warm, friendly environment. Berest teaches fluid movements that result in a very graceful performance, even at the younger ages.

    2. MomOf3 Berest Dance Center - Port Washington Dance Studio
      Overall Rating:

      Certainly graceful and feels right to send my child to look up to the instructors. Ballet class felt very classy at the beginning of the year. Later, when my daughter lost interest in the routine I was disappointed… I felt my daughter was one of many puppets on a string and missed out on the art of dance.
