We love it when people talk about us! See what our awesome students, parents and alumni have to say!
“Best training for boys and girls”
Boss Academy is the finest, family oriented, and best training for girls and boys aspiring to learn what it truly is to "dance". You can't find a better place amongst the south shore that offers true dance professionals to work with your kids! It truly is one of the best decisions you could make for your child.

“Some great experiences for my whole family”
Joining the Boss family was the best thing we ever did! My son started with hip hop and soon after added tap, jazz, and ballet, and then acting. He even played the lead role in a short film with a director from California that was shot on the South Shore. The past 11 years have been filled with some great experiences for my whole family. End of the year shows, winter shows, star studded competitons, Mohegan Sun, two trips to Walt Disney World. And to watch your child dance on the Beauty and the Beast stage is incredible! I wish I had more kids! Everyone should sign up with Boss Academy of Performing Arts - you won't regret a minute of it!

“Valuable life lessons like determination, friendship, support, team work and confidence.”
Two of my children are Boss alumni and one is currently a student at Boss Academy. They all started out with dance and two added to their talents, thriving in acting, voice, and competitive dance. For all three, the self-confidence and discipline they gained by dancing and performing is incredible. It really has given them valuable life lessons like determination, friendship, support, team work, and confidence; these are all qualities they will use throughout life. Additionally, they had FUN, made great FRIENDS, and are part of an amazing studio and “Boss Family.” KathyJo and all her staff are wonderful!

"She has made a lot of friends over the years, and some that have become more like family"
My daughter is going into her 12th year at Boss Academy. She has been dancing since she was 3 years old and takes multiple dance classes such as ballet, jazz, tap, technique, and tumbling. She has been a part of amazing competition dance teams that have won many awards. She has learned more than just dance - what it means to be part of a team and to be depended on, as well as to depend on others. She danced with Boss at Disney at Disney Springs and the Beauty and the Beast Stage, which was pretty amazing! She has made a lot of friends over the years, and some that have become more like family.

“Determination and confidence.”
My daughter danced with Boss for 11 years and still performs in shows as an alumni. What she has accomplished so far in life has come from determination and the confidence she gained through dance!

We made great contacts in the industry because of Boss and have even booked paid work!

"Lifelong friends and great memories."
Dancing at Boss Academy gave me a chance to open up a side of myself that I would not have experienced if I did not dance. Dance teaches you to have great patience, leadership skills, cooperation and confidence. I thank my Boss family for being the reason I have such high confidence. Boss left me with lifelong friends and great memories - I am so thankful I joined and was there for 9 years of my life! I wish I could have stayed forever.

"Proud to be part of the Boss family."
My daughter is going into her 13th year at Boss Academy. She has done everything Boss has to offer- dance, voice and acting. I've watched girls and boys grow with Boss, graduate and come back as teachers. Students don't just attend classes at Boss - they become part of a family. We are proud to be part of the Boss family!

"I am a proud DANCE MOM of a BOSS DANCER!"
Starting dance at the age of 2, my daughter is now going into her 7th year at Boss Academy and 13th year of dance. She started dancing at another studio, and making move to Boss Academy was by far the best choice! She had capped out at the other studio and needed a place that would challenge her abilities.
Boss Academy has given her the confidence to push herself to be the best she can be - on and off the dance floor. KathyJo and staff at Boss Academy always go beyond your expectations. If you have not seen a Boss Academy end of the year show, you must!
he relationships that my daughter has built from the Boss family are lifetime friendships. The best part of being a dance mom with Boss Academy is seeing my daughter do what she loves ... DANCE!
