What our community has to say

House of Eights is such a great studio. The classes are welcoming, not intimidating and easy to navigate. Their booking style is perfect for anyone who runs on a less consistent schedule and there is endless amounts of variety in style and difficulty. Sarah R.
I stopped dancing for years because I felt too intimidated and self-conscious to go to drop-ins. From the very first class I’ve taken I have felt welcomed, encouraged, challenged, and supported. Thank you House of Eights for creating the perfect nurturing environment for me to get back in touch with my creativity. Thank you for helping me fall in love with dance again. Kristyn G.
House of Eights has been a fantastic experience! I have been taking beginner classes as a way to fit more physical activity into my week and House of Eight’s drop-in classes are perfect for that. With a different bit of choreography every class, you don’t have to worry about missing one. The instructors are wonderful and make you feel comfortable and confident no matter the class size. Katherine T.
As a beginner dancer I was nervous about trying lessons at a studio but my experience so far has been amazing! The class sizes allow you to be more personal with the instructor and the instructors are able to focus on you to offer advice/directions. Always lots of fun and easy to pick up styles you’ve never tried. Meghan M.
