About her dancing...
"Gershwin in Hollywood" danced to a terrific, strictly instrumental Gershwin selection, is a parade of movie types...Andrea Wachholtz, radiant in a marabou trimmed gown, could have been a young Betty Davis or even a twenty-someting Tallulah Bankhead..."

AIM is a classy studio that focuses on technique and teaches your child the true art of dance. The uniforms for class and costumes for performances are beautiful as well as age-appropriate. The
music they dance to is appropriate for little ears. These were the things that were important to us in choosing a studio 5 years ago, and why our children still attend today.
Miss Andrea creates a professional as well as loving environment for her students. She goes above and beyond her role as instructor and guides her students constructively and lovingly. The studio families are positive and supportive. The children have a tight-knit comradery.

My daughter loves Miss Andrea! She is wonderful with the children and a great teacher. Her patience and composure in her teaching abilities is incomparable. I've had the pleasure of watching her dance and I'm so glad that my daughter has the ability to learn from her expertise. She is a beautiful dancer and amazing teacher.

“... I have been inspired by her, and I have seen many other people be inspired by her. Whether it is in the classroom, or watching her perform, she brings enthusiasm and grace to everything she does. She comes from a strict background of ballet, so she is able to bring her own self discipline into the classroom. I have taken a variety of classes with her, from ballet to mime, and everything in between. Sometimes I wonder if there's anything she can't do. Ms. Andrea has been such an important element of my dance life.”
To provide the proper knowledge to children of all ages and capabilities that will allow them to grow both as a dancer and as a person. To help them discover how to use their own actions and experiences through their dancing in the most safe, pleasant and enjoyable environment. Andrea is committed to her continued professional growth, injury prevention and the development of exciting new programming.
