Parent Reviews

"Oh my goodness, I love this behind the scenes so much!! I have often said CBT  means so much more to Sammye Kate and I than dance. It’s her happy place, her 2nd home, her extended family. No matter how tough her day, she looks forward to class. I’m so grateful for all the opportunities Sammye Kate has had and all the friendships made along the way. Those girls are precious and CBT teachers are awesome."
