Not a lot of instructors can teach as well as they can dance. Yanna is an effective and thorough instructor who is willing to take time to insure that every student understands and executes their movements correctly. -R.Williams.
Florida Prep has proven to be the best in nurturing the beginner dancer for learning the fundamentals of dancing. It has really boost my daughter's confidence and self-esteem. -D.Joseph.
You can almost always expect Florida Prep dancers to be involved in their community by volunteering their time and artistic skills. I love that this is more than just a studio, it's a place where the kids can learn to grow as dancers and as individuals. -C. Diehl.
I love Florida Preparatory Ballet School because it is truly the epitome of caring in excellence. Ms. Yanna is an excellent instructor who has just the right touch to motivate and encourage the dancers to do their very best every time... with a little fun to boot. -C.Smith.
Florida Prep is a very professional yet heart-warming place. You cannot put a price tag on the one-on-one treatment that is being displayed by Yanna herself. Practice runs for the complete scheduled time, so don't think you're not going to get your money's worth and more. -H.Jackson.
My daughter has been a ballet student of Yanna for three years. During her time at Florida Prep Ballet School, I have seen her ballet skills greatly improve. Although she has been a ballet student for many, many years, it is only now with Florida Prep that her confidence in herself has blossomed and this has allowed her to perform at a higher skill level. She trusts Yanna as a ballet instructor and as a parent, so do I. Yanna shows professionalism in the way she teaches, encourages and conducts business. Her genuine care for my daughter touches my heart. I appreciate that although she is the owner of the school, her first love and concern is for her students. Florida Prep is a school dedicated to ballet and the strength, skill, and knowledge of ballet is stressed, and excellence is expected from every student. -J.Belanger.
Me encanta esta escuela de ballet porque ha enseñado a mis hijas como ser mas educada y como tener confiansa en si misma. Espero que se queden en esta escuela por muchos años y que aprendan mucho mas. -J.Rivera.
Ms. Yanna is a nice teacher and the girls love her! My daughter has learned alot, and she has also changed in school and all around. She is now much more disciplined in her actions. -Z.Shirey.
I am so thankful that Florida Prep Ballet School is here in Valrico. My daughter has been to several other dance schools in the Tampa Bay area and none have taken as much care and time to ensure that my daughter learns the fundamentals of ballet. So much so that in less than three weeks my daughter went from knowing very little of ballet to reciting and performing all of the turns and stances taught to her. She has gained so much confidence and courage that she wakes up every morning to practice what she's learned the previous day. I'm extremely thankful for Ms. Yanna and her loving way of presenting this beautiful art to these young and aspiring children. -T.Thomas.
I like this school because my two daughters love Ms. Yanna and she has taught them to respect others, become more independent, and focus more, which has helped with school and dance. -C.Rodriguez.
My daughters both go to Florida Prep Ballet School and they cannot be happier about the experience. It is such a learning environment and every bit of time and money spent is worth twice its value. I extend my recognition to the school, staff, and Mrs. Yanna. My appreciations are many for the hard work and professionalism received from the school. I thank Mrs. Yanna for being a role model and an example of tenacity and dedication; and of course, for letting us feel and experience your love for dancing. Way to Go, FL Prep Ballet! -E. Arano
Mis Hijas las dos van a Florida Prep Ballet School y ellas no pueden estar mas felices acerca de esta experiencia. Ha sido un maravilloso ambiente de aprendizaje y cada minuto y dinero invertido ha tenido dos veces su valor. Extendo mi reconocimiento a la escuela, el equipo, y a Mrs. Yanna. Aprecio mucho el gran trabajo, efuerzo, y profesionalismo. Le doy gracias a Mrs. Yanna por ser un modelo y un ejemplo de tenacidad y dedication, y por supuesto, por dejarnos sentir tu amor al ballet. Que vengan muchos años mas de exito. -E. Arano
We've been to five different ballet schools in four different states. Florida Prep Ballet is by far the best ballet school we have come across. Mrs. Yanna helps the girls achieve discipline and excellence in dance in a loving environment. My girls have learned so much. We are very happy about our experience here an look forward to many more years to come. -R. Adib
As our first experience with dance/ballet, I must say I am very impressed with Mrs. Yanna and Florida Prep Ballet School. Mrs. Yanna is very knowledgeable and really takes the time to work with the girls to give them the confidence to do their very best. My daughter has blossomed into a strong and confident girl in just the few months she has been working with Mrs. Yanna, and we will definitely continue with the school.
