It never ceases to amaze me how people can comment on places they have never experienced for themselves. I have been associated with CPA since its beginnings. It is a fabulous studio with talented teachers. One of its greatest attributes is the fact that it is a non-competitive studio where ALL children of ALL abilities come together to sing, dance, act, fence, and CREATE. There is no pressure, no trophies, only photo albums and pictures on the wall of smiling happy children. This is a place where do good for others doesnt take a back seat. The Troupes perform for free in the community and promote a joy for the arts. CPA is a family-owed and operated business that gives back to the community through many different avenues including scholarships at Cresskill High School, the Fiddle Foundation and Slice of Hope. Students are encouraged to work together to create something special, something beautiful. I have seen Ms. Daly, firsthand and behind the scenes helping families in need, being available 24/7 and sharing her passion for the arts with her faculty and students. When personal tragedy hit this family only 2 weeks ago, Betsy had to put her pain and sorrow aside to get the studio open for camp that Monday morning. That is not about money, it is about dedication. And for that matter, when is it a crime to offer a service and not expect to be paid? She is absolutely not "all about the money". That is a comment to forward someones personal agenda and it is grossly untrue and unfair. Having a daughter who has danced in several places over the years, Cresskill Performing Arts is a fabulous studio where children are encouraged to embrace their passion for the arts. It is a great addition to the businesses offered in Cresskill. And it is ALL about the children they serve. But dont take my word for it or anyone elses...stop by and see it firsthand for yourself. You wont be disappointed that you did.
My daughter has been dancing at this wonderful family owned business for the last seven years. This is my childs "home away from home." This is the place where she feels and IS completely safe, valued as an individual and supported both emotionally and physically by a staff of experienced, professional and caring teachers. Betsy Daly, director and owner of this exceptional place is the most genuine, caring person I have ever met. She always has a smile and a warm welcome when you arrive. This studio is not just her business but her passion. Each child who enters her doors are encouraged to be the best they can be. This studio is unique in that there is no pressure on the children to perform for trophies. This studio is all about creativity. All that Betsy asks is that the children have fun in whatever they do whether it is dancing, singing or acting. This studio consistently provides an environment that is supportive, understanding and nurturing. The entire staff from the teachers to the front desk are always courteous and available to the students and their parents alike. Betsy has not only been supportive and generous to my child over the years but to my family as well. I feel blessed to be a part of this exceptional studio and all it has to offer. I want to thank Betsy and her staff of wonderful teachers for encouraging my child to recognize her abilities and for igniting her passion for dance. I highly recommend this studio to all.
I find the post by Ester Rosenberg and Debra Lehman extremely suspect. I have worked at Cresskill Performing Arts for almost 5 years now and my job is at the front desk. I would be the one to see all of the parents names and names of our students. We have never had anyone by the above names. It seems someone has made up two alias to spread negative stories that I could say with complete confidence ARE NOT TRUE. Betsy Daly is all about whats BEST FOR THE KIDS. This is a studio you would love to have your children experience. Your child will gain self-confidence while having fun. It is a family owned business that takes pride in themselves and their staff is second to none. Im sad that someone is spreading such lies. But I guess we should feel sorry for someone that would do something like this. Cresskill Performing Arts is a studio your children will love to dance at and you will love us too. See you at the front desk.
This is a wonderful place for children to come and learn to dance but also have a ton of fun with the amazing staff and other students. I was given an opportunity to teach a breakdancing class there and I was blown away with how caring everyone was for each other. The teachers were kind and caring for the children and in return, the children were respectful and enthusiastic towards the teachers. The positive energy is contagios because a similar dynamic came into my class and it has stuck with me ever since. Betsy is a great leader, teacher, and an all around great person. If you are reading this review in search of a studio to take your children, I highly recommend Cresskill Performing Arts. -Matt S
I worked here during my summers off in college as well as took a few classes. The teachers are professional, experienced and lovely. The students are funny, artistic and talented. And the director, Betsy, makes sure everyone is safe, happy, and learning. There are classes for young and old, experienced and novice. With professionalism, quality teachers, and a fun exciting environment, everyone who attends is in for fun and artistry. You can even swing by and sit in the lounge to watch performances of the students from previous years. As far as dance classes go in Bergen County, this is the only place you should go.
Besides the amazing fact that all of these teachers are professionals and working in the business, and provide excellent classes --which are made to be small so each child has personalized attention (Yes! Yes! Yes!), it is the director Betsy Daly and her staff that make this studio a warm, positive, happy place, and almost a second home for most dancers and performers who take classes there. There is a reason why so many kids that go off to college come back to visit whenever they can, they come back home. If you are ever fortunate enough to be apart of this wonderful studio, do not hesitate to sign up for classes!
I recently had the opportunity to get to know Betsy at a seminar. Her commitment to her studio and her passion for what she does is infectious. Cresskill Performing arts students are lucky to have such a dedicated advocate working to provide them with the finest dance studio in the area. Family focused and teachers are working professionals.
Cresskill Performing arts is the most unprofessional Dance studio in all of New Jersey. The director does not care about the kids at all, but about money. She puts down competitor studios in front of Students, that is extremely unprofessional. She screams at kids and is somewhat abusive to them as well, stay far away from this studio
My daughters and I love Cresskill Performing Arts! My daughters have learned so much from the truly talented, professional and dedicated teachers and cant wait to start the fall semester. The director, Betsy Daly, knows and truly cares about each student. We are so lucky to have found Cresskill Performing Arts!
