What people are saying...

About her dancing...

 

"...Nor could they have missed veteran company member Andrea Wachholtz’s improvised glimpse into dance-making, staged in the studio theater...Ms. Wachholtz has been a graceful presence in SIB presentations for well over a decade..." MICHAEL FRESSOLA - SI ADVANCE June 27, 2010

 

"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..."

 

 -Michael J. Fressola STATEN ISLAND ADVANCE

 "Andrea is a poised, directed teacher...nice connections between the visual and the kinetic...well organized...clear focus and plan...constant engagement..."

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.

This is the third year that Miss Andrea has been teaching my daughter ballet. My daughter is a competitive dancer and has developed her craft so much because of Andrea. There is nobody that knows movement like Miss Andrea. She learned everything about my daughter, pin-pointed her weaknesses and made them her strengths. I could never thank her for the confidence she has given my little dancer. We are so happy that Miss Andrea has her own studio now and especially love that Andrea caters to a small group. We plan on being a part of her dance family for a long time. I would highly recommend that anyone looking for traditional ballet technique instruction go to AIM because there is no other place on SI that can offer what Andrea can.

“... 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.”
