Reviews:

Metropolitan Dance company moved into its new studio space this month (June 2013) and although there is still some dust and a few kinks need to be worked out, this place shows promise of being a 10-star studio once everything gets settled.

Conveniently located in Houston’s Midtown, the new facility includes four spacious studios with excellent lighting and drop floors that are friendly to a variety of shoes. There are two ample waiting areas for hanging out before and after class, and the large restrooms even have shower facilities.

This is a big improvement over their previous location, which was unique and quirky, but outdated and not up to handling the volume of students, which increases with each passing year. Space in the children’s classes is highly coveted, and promising students have a pipeline into the Met Too Youth Company. Adult classes include a cohort-based intro classes for beginners, and drop-in classes in ballet, jazz, modern, tap, and hip-hop. The atmosphere is friendly and supportive, with all ages, backgrounds and dance goals welcome.

Anyone who loves to dance can find their niche at the Houston Met!

Description via website: “‘We believe dance, movement and holistic practices are powerful vehicles for change. As you witness your body developing strength, you start to believe in your own potential.’Live a life you love in a body you love. Chapel House Studios opened in early 2012. The exciting initiative was derived from a very real need for town centre, beautifully maintained, clean space, that was specifically designed to host dance, fitness and holistic practices.”
