Thank you so much for everything you and your family do!  It was a bittersweet day for us yesterday, but seeing how much Sara has grown as a dancer made it a great day.  We will of course miss watching her (and the other seniors) dance, but it is an exciting time for her, and she is looking into as many ways to stay involved in dance as she can at Liberty.  The other exciting thing yesterday was seeing Emily dance – I think it was partly because she missed last year’s recital, but it kind of snuck up on us how strong of a dancer she has become.  They both truly love it there and we really appreciate all of you!

The show was wonderful, as always. I love the variety of numbers, from the Kitty Kats to the Senior Solos and everything in between. There are so many talented young dancers and all of them seem to love what they're doing. Thank you for all that you do, an endless list! Pizzazz is a special place where the kids not only learn steps to dances, they develop a love of dance in a non-competitive, supportive atmosphere.  I am so glad we found Pizzazz seven years ago. Logan had been in a couple of ballet classes in preschool, but once she joined Pizzazz she thrived.  I can't wait to see what the next few years brings!

I wanted to thank you Brianna had a fabulous year, stress free too! Kristen made a comment to Brianna that this was the first time she saw Brianna smile, laugh & have a good time during recitals since they danced at the same studio for years, Brianna is all business when she's in class & on stage but this is the first time we saw her not so nervous, anyways with that said I want to thank you & your mother (she's awesome) for a great year!

Thank You for all of your patience and guidance with her this past year. She looked absolutely beautiful on stage and it was apparent that you and the other teachers taught her a great deal. Please thank Ms. Rose as well. She was so helpful and patient every time we needed something. Have a great summer. See you in August for summer camp.

I wanted to congratulate you on this year's recital I personally thought it was the best year yet - all of the girls really were together and looked fantastic. I absolutely loved the number "When I Grow Up." Thank you for everything! Enjoy your summer!

Our daughters second home and family next year will be our tenth and twelfth years. They have learned much more than how to dance from their teacher Aimee Rogers Minarich and Rose Rogers over the years. Cannot thank you enough. Looking forward to summer camp and company auditions.

It's our pleasure to return our thanks to you Aimee and your family for making dance a true love for us
as a family.

Your dedication and love for dance clearly shines through you. It's that love for dance that gives us the willingness and dedication to continue every year with dance. You, Stephanie, Nicolette & Jade are absolutely fantastic dance teachers and mentors to our girls. We've been involved in dance with Brianna while we lived in Gloucester Twp for 5 years before moving to Vld and joining your Pizzazz family. We know from experience what it takes and your family is by far the best in every way. We couldn't be happier to have found you when we looked around here.

So we thank YOU and all of your family for welcoming us and being such positive role models to our girls.
I for one, will never forget this... And we will forever be grateful and be there for you as you have been for us.

Dear Miss Aimee,

Another wonderful year of dance. We love Pizzazz Dance Center, the dancers, teachers and families.
Janina can't wait to come back in September! I love to watch the whole process from Sept. to June
and watch the kids grow and mature making memories with their friends.

Miss Aimee,

I thought the recital this year was exceptional. I felt a sincere family like atmosphere between the dancers
and teachers which was wonderful. We're glad to be a part of this dance studio.


PS: We're looking forward to next dance season!

Thank you Aimee for all of your hard work. Brooke had a great time and loved performing! We'll see you in

You have blessed us in so many ways. We will forever be thankful! God Bless!

Great job! Awesome show!
See you later in the summer and enjoy some time for yourself.
Thank you for all u do!


Posted 06/30/2014

Thanks as always for everything you do, especially in such a tough year for everyone. Yesterday's
performance was very cathartic for us (and everyone, I think) - it was a beautiful tribute and a
great way to end the year. See you in the fall! (actually, the girls are signed up for camp, so we'll
see you before that too!)


Posted 06/30/2014

I just wanted to say the recital was beautiful.....I can honestly say it gets better and better
every year. So glad we are a part of this great dance family~ Have a great summer!

Imagine being an adult for one day, and trading places with whoever you choose. If I could do that I'd probably trade places with my dance teacher Ms. Aimee. The reasons are that I could teach dance all day, there's also the fact that I could spend the day with her mother Ms. Rose whose like a grandmother to me, also I'd be able to do complicated dances that I couldn't do before. During the day I probably be dancing and spending time with Ms. Rose. While I'm doing this Ms. Aimee will be running around my school trying to run a mile and get to class on time and getting my class work done. Also she'd probably be giving a speech to my friends about how dance is better than sports.

In conclusion, I would trade places with her because she's one of the kindest adults I know. Even when I grow up and become one I know I will never forget her. She has influenced my life so much, and the most challenging things in my life would be saying goodbye to her.

Thanking dance center for all it does

After leaving this year's recital at Pizzazz Dance Center in Newfield, I couldn't help but feel an enormous sense of pride - not only being a proud parent, but also because of all the hard work done by the many students, teachers, Ms. Aimee and Craig Minarich, Ms. Rose and all of the staff. Once again, they have proven to be a very qualified, professional and caring group of people.

A special thanks to our daughter's wonderful instructors Ms. Aimee Minarich and Ms. Casie Newkirk for making this year so special. You two are the best!

Congratulations to all involved in putting on this wonderful show. It was truly a remarkable and enjoyable production.

Pizzazz dancers will continue to dance for many tomorrows

After attending the recent recital "Dance like there's no tomorrow," spotlighting the dancers from Pizzazz Dance Center in Newfield, I have to say I am very impressed. They put on a very professional, timely and enjoyable show.
Kudos to Ms. Aimee Minarich, Ms. Rose, Craig Minarich and all of the teachers, staff and dancers who helped to make the recital something I am proud to say I was a part of. Anyone thinking of placing their child in a dance class should definitely consider bringing them to Pizzazz Dance Center. Not only do they give excellent and high quality instructions, but you also become a part of their family. They treat all the dancers and their parents with respect, dignity and the sincere kindness you would want from a teaching environment. My dancer, Stephania, and our family love the entire staff there! (especially Ms. Aimee, Ms. Rose & Ms. Joy).
Thanks again for a truly wonderful experience.

I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you and all of the staff at Pizzazz for all that you do! Sara had another great year, and while I still wish we had started earlier, it is great to see her developing and working hard on something that she truly has a passion for. We also were amazed to see how well Emily did ¿ she never complained a bit to us all year about class, and went through the recital with no issues which was wonderful, and is a tribute to what you do at Pizzazz. Also, as crazy as recital week is, it never feels stressful at the rehearsals or recitals, and again I believe this is because it feels like family and I love the time spent there. I truly believe Pizzazz is the perfect match for us! Thanks so much!!

Take care and I wish you all the best with your school! It was a great experience for us.

And, I'm glad to hear from you because I have been wanting to contact you since the recital to let you know how pleased I am with the studio. The recital was phenomenal and I enjoyed watching it so much. The choreography and music choices were beyond compare! I was close to tears watching Christina and the Schroer girls. (But, of course, I cry very easily whenever I watch my children doing something they love so much.) We always have difficulty splitting our time between all the kids activities and family activities, and sometimes it is frustrating for Mike and I, as parents, and Christina to split our time accordingly. But, all that frustration melts away when I see your performances. It is always well worth the sacrifices that we all make.

I also wanted to thank you for being so patient with Christina and I, when we didn't think she could dance on Saturday. Her eyes were bothering her so much and it was difficult for her just to open them. But, I was so proud of her when she said she wanted to give it a try. She was so upset thinking that she was letting me down, and letting you and her fellow dancers down. And, I was upset for her because she did work so hard all year and it would have broken my heart for her, if she wasn't able to perform after all her hard work. Although she wasn't able to dance to her full potential on Saturday, I feel that she made up for it on Sunday.

So, I really just wanted to say 'Thank you, Thank you, Thank you. We love your studio!'

It has been a wonderful year once again for Cassandra. I have seen her mature so much and her dance technique is improving steadily. She truely loves pointe and ballet.

The recital was amazing this year. There are so many classes & dances, I don't know how you keep it all straight, but your hard work and dedication shows through.

Thank you for making this all possible. See you in the fall.

My daughter celebrated her 6th birthday at Pizzazz Dance Center. She and her guests loved it! The dance workshop was personalized and the kids had a great time! We did not have to prepare anything or clean up, which allowed us to enjoy the day without stress. It was all taken care for us by Miss Aimee and her staff at a very reasonable price. After the wonderful party, many of the children's parents asked me about the dance studio because they were interested in joining. I had nothing but good things to tell them about Pizzazz. The staff is wonderful! They are very professional, caring and organized. I cannot say enough good things about the experience we have had at Pizzazz!

Our daughter Emily has been dancing at Pizzazz since she was five years old. She has gone from dancing 1 dance in the recital to dancing five. Emily so enjoys herself that she hates to miss class and her favorite time of year is recital time. She loves dance so much she works very hard to stay on the honor roll at school. This is a true testimate to Ms. Aimee, she teaches Emily that working hard and practicing has great rewards. Emily, John and I have and will always recommend Pizzazz to friends and family who want to dance.

Emily loves to dance so much she talked me into dancing too! I have so much fun I talked my sister into dancing. Thank-you Ms. Aimee, Ms. Rose and all the girls in class for making this big lady feel and finally look like a dancer.

Our grandchildren have attended Pizzazz Dance Center for three and four years now. We were very impressed with this year's recital. The costumes were beautiful and seeing the progress Lorraine and Annamarie have made since starting dance is amazing. We are happy our grandchildren are given something good to look forward each week. The care and patience of the teachers shows in the dancers. We like the fact that the children's safety and security are first and foremost with a security guard in attendance and having volunteer room mothers to help all the children get changed and ready for each performance. Thank you to Miss Aimee, her husband, family and staff for such a fabulous job.

My daughter has been dancing since she was four years old. We moved to this area five years ago and started looking for a dance school. A current dance parent recommended Pizzazz. I am so lucky she did. Amanda has grown in her confidence and technique as a dancer. The teachers are fantastic. They treat the students with respect and kindness. My daughter loves to attend dance class. The school offers a wide variety of classes to chose from and keeps the cost of classes so much lower than other dance schools. I look forward to the recital at the end of the year. The production is professionally done and really makes my daughter proud to be a part of the program. I invite friends each year and they really enjoy themselves and say that each recital gets better.

Amanda will attend Pizzazz for her entire dance career. The school really is a wonderful learning environment with dedicated teachers who go above and beyond just teaching.

Posted 07/22/2009

I started dancing at a very young age, about 4 or 5. I continued dancing until I married at age 19. I raised my family, and decided it was time for me. When I moved to Newfield in 2001, I found Miss Aimee. My years at Pizzazz Dance Center have been wonderful. I have re-learned things I had forgotten, learned many new things, and made new friends. When people ask how I stay in shape "go see Miss Aimee" is my answer.

This year is the largest adult jazz class we have had, and we had a wonderful time learning Dancing Queen. I recommend dancing with Miss Aimee to anyone no matter what your age, or dancing ability.

P.S. Miss Rose is great too.

My daughter recently participated in her 8th dance recital. I am so proud of her accomplishments. I remember Margaux’s first dance, Kitty Kat Rock, like it was yesterday. Margaux has become a graceful and confident young lady thanks to many hours at Pizzazz Dance Center. A heartfelt thank you to Miss Aimee, Miss Kim, and Miss Rochelle for teaching Margaux how to dance and how to appreciate everything she is learning. The focus and discipline Margaux learns at Pizzazz is applied to other aspects of her life, including school and swim. Honestly, I could not have been a dance mom without the support and tips from Miss Rose. Thank you for all the help you give us, from getting the perfect fit for shoes to telling me about the special sewing kit for the ballet slippers. Personally, I am grateful for the wonderful “dance family” I have become friendly with over the years.

Miss Aimee, congratulations on 10 fabulous years and on your new building. I wish you the best!

Pizzazz Dance Center is a wonderful place to start your young one in dance. My daughter participated in her first recital last year and she had so much fun. Miss Aimee is a wonderful teacher and has really helped with Emilia's self confidence and self esteem. Her center promotes fun, wellness and a well rounded philosophy. My family truely enjoyed this past years recital which was fantastic. My daughter can't wait to start another year of dance!

"Kitty Kat Rock"

My daughter, Alyssa, has danced for Miss Aimee' for nine years. Miss Aimee' has taught my daughter her right foot from her left foot when she was three and now, at twelve, she is an elegant and graceful ballerina. Alyssa also enjoys Tap, Jazz, Lyrical, Hip-Hop and Pointe. I have recommended Pizzazz Dance Center to my family and friends.

- Judy

My daughters, Ashli and Alysa, have danced at Pizzazz Dance Center for several years. They have also attended summer dance camp for many years. The dance center provides a loving, caring atmosphere where dancers learn various styles of dance and strong technique constructively. The dance center also offers workshops, fun activities, and fundraisers. Dancing at Pizzazz Dance Center has strengthened my daughters' self-esteem and confidence. Both girls love going to their dance classes, learning new steps, and seeing their friends and teachers. They can't wait for dance to start again in September!

My daughters have attended Pizzazz since fall of 2005, for the older one, and the fall of 2006, for the second one. We have had a very positive experience with the dance studio and it's instructors.

My older daughter, Annamarie, has Attention Deficit Disorder and ballet was actually recommended as a treatment, for this disorder. Thanks to the dance school we did not have to use medication right away and she is on a lower dose than I believe she would be, had we not used dance as a treatment.

Miss Aimee's patience and kindness has helped both of my daughters to blossom into beautiful dancers.
Miss Rochelle is also working with my older child this year and I couldn't ask for better teachers, for my children.

- Diane Garrity

This fall we had a birthday party at Pizzazz. It is the first time where I actually got to sit down and enjoy one of my children's birthdays. Everything was handled very efficiently. The food was wonderful and all of our guests walked away very happy. The kids had a great time and I had no mess and no worries. I was able to join in during the dance lesson and enjoy conversation with the other parents.

Thank you Pizzazz for a fabulous birthday.
