"MOST AMAZING DANCE STUDIO IN MISSOULA by far!! <3 Great culture, great education and great atmosphere."
"My daughter has been attending Show Tyme for 2 years. She started dancing there when she was 2. The owners Christine and Alex are incredible. They are very knowledgable, hard working, and extremely talented. Missoula is so lucky to have them. Our experience with the other older more experienced dancers at this studio has been nothing but positive. They are kind, respectful, and go out of their way to mentor and encourage the tinniest dancers. The teachers make dancing fun and help the children feel at ease while helping them learn skills. The end of the year performance is also spectacular. They do an amazing job with costumes, choreography, and put on an amazing show. I have never had a negative experience."
"My daughter and I both take dance lessons here from super friendly staff in a great environment with reasonable prices. I highly recommend Show Tyme for a good work out or if you have aspirations of becoming a seasoned dancer. They also have a wonderful photographer on site!"
