"My name is Shane Messick, I am 20 years old and I have been coming to Baltimore Dance Center since about 2003. I have been a member of the BDC family for a few years now. I say family rather than student because that is the feel you get from being there. I have been coming for Hip-Hop dance classes off and on for a few years and I love it. Shannon Salemi is an amazing dancer, caring, considerate and it is clear she is doing it because she loves it. I have not paid for classes anywhere else because I love BDC. Aside from the very fair prices, they offer so much in addition to dancing, but what I go for is advanced hip-hop. I love learning the MTV style of dance and going to a club it is fun to show off what you know. Also since I am a singer and actor having dance skills makes me even more of a triple threat. Baltimore Dance Center provides so much opportunity! I am a member of the "agency" and have been able to perform representing BDC and look forward to where we will perform in the future. If anyone ever asked me to recommend a place for dance classes I would without a doubt say Baltimore Dance Center. I can always expect to have fun, and learn every time I go to a class. Dancing is a great way to keep in shape, and you meet a lot of great people. Shannon is always trying to find more and more gigs to perform and I love knowing I am one of those dancers she considers have represent BDC. Baltimore dance center has helped me out a lot, I do well at dance auditions, I am confident in dancing, and I know shannon is always willing to help me out ! to live is to dance."
