Before joining Ayana Dance School, my two daughters tried ballet through the local community classes and two other ballet studios. Ayana is our favorite! Ms. Marianna dedicates so much time, energy, and creativity to all of her students, new or experienced – more than any other ballet instructor I've seen.

Pre-Ballet Parent

I can't imagine a better school for learning ballet technique, acting, learning to feel music and your body. I highly recommend the school and especially Ms. Marianna as a teacher.

Junior Ballet Parent

The best teacher in the area. Marianna is awesome. My daughter has learned so much in the last two years from here. And due to the progress she made, she is in love with the art form these days.
