My oldest daughter takes martial arts at Savellis and my younger two daughters take dance there. They love it! I have been very impressed with the amount of material the girls have learned and it's done in a very tasteful way. As far as martial arts, Mr. Jay is such a great leader. He has taught my daughter self confidence and self discipline. She is better at balancing and coordination. I cannot say enough about Savellis. Their recitals are top notch!! I would recommend Savellis to anyone! L.B.
I've been wanting to share how happy we are that we choose Savelli Dance for E 5 years ago when we first moved here. I honestly knew no one and found the studio online! It has become very apparent that her instruction with you and your family is the best she could receive. Thank you for your time and talents! JT
O had his final martial arts class for the school year and we are so proud of him! He was awarded “Most Attentive” by Mr. Jay and the award suited him perfectly. He has come out of his shell so much this year thanks to Mr. Jay and his class, and it has helped with his physical coordination skills, as well. Jason is amazing with the kids and I cannot speak more highly of the organization!
Thank you for all that you all do for K and J! The staff at Savelli's is fantastic and we are so grateful for all the work you put into teaching, training, establishing self-confidence and hard work you put into my daughters and all the kids at the studio. We are so blessed to part of Savelli's year after year and excited to see the beautiful dancers you will help them become!
Savelli Martial Arts has been a part of my family’s weekly routine going on 6 years now. My youngest of four children, who all attend, has just started with the program and asks every day if he can go to Kung Fu. We love it and I recommend it to anyone with children. Mr. Jay is amazing with children of all ages and continues to impress me with both his energy and patience. He has taught my children self-control, focus and discipline all while having fun.
I just wanted to let you know what a wonderful time S and her friends had at the party today! They were all smiles, giggles, and happy squeals throughout and even as they left the studio! A very special thank you to the young ladies who ran the party...they did an absolutely fantastic job keeping the party going, transitioning from one activity to another. It was, by far, the most well-run party, making it the easiest one for me! :) Thank you for helping me celebrate S's 8th birthday! M :)
...Thank you and your family for your talents, your passion and dedication to helping young women of all ages, shapes and sizes express themselves in a positive, healthy and creative way. Your work makes a difference in so many young lives and I am grateful my daughter is a part of such a well run organization. All the best to you and yours, W
My daughters had their dance recital on Saturday, June 2, 2012. I just wanted to say THANK YOU! I was so impressed with how smoothly the show ran. It was wonderful. This year was Isabella's second year of dance. Last year she was at a different studio. It was terrible. We almost didn't enroll them this year because of the experience last year. I am so thankful that we did! We all have had a wonderful experience with Savelli's. My girls have enjoyed themselves so much. They are already talking about next session. Thank you so much to Miss Juliet for being such a positive teacher. Can't wait to see you again! K. A.
I just had to write and thank all of you for all that you do!!! Yesterday was my daughter's first dance competition as an SD1 dancer. I have always enjoyed the Savelli's dance shows and thought it was a wonderful studio. The dance competition gave me a whole new perspective of the different dance opportunities out there in the world. I am truly honored to have my daughter dance with the Savelli's group. Your choreography, costumes and work ethic show through with all of your dancers. I am really happy to have my daughters enrolled at your studio. Thanks!!
Thanks for your time with the girls these past weeks and this weekend. While I am not a great judge of good dancers (and definitely can't understand solid gold, high gold, and platinum), I thought the girls did a great job today. I do know that Savelli Dance continues to be a great experience for MK, and we are certainly grateful for your time, patience, and dedication that provide her with the opportunity to dance. Looking forward to the upcoming spring performances.
Mrs. Savelli, Thank you for 13 years of providing something which A - loves. You have helped her to grow in grace, poise, ability, knowledge and strength. Thank you for trusting her and helping her to become confident, mature, focused and independent. She has had fun without getting into trouble. You have helped her to grow up with strong values, self-esteem and goals. God Bless You! M. A.
Dear Mrs. Savelli, Thank you so much for another awesome year of tap. I learned so many new steps and enjoyed every minute of it. Because of you, I am a lot more serious about my tapping and my overall dancing. It is not just a hobby anymore, it is my passion to dance. Your tap class really challenged me, which I believe made me a better tapper. I had so much fun in your class and I hope I have you again next year as a teacher. Performance Group was also loads of fun. I really enjoyed learning all of those routines and I can't wait to learn more. I would like to own my own business like you some day because of your influence. I can't wait until next year! See you at dance camp and thanks again! Your dancer, D. S.
Dear Diane and Staff, Thanksgiving time is that special time of the year to reflect on what you're thankful for throughout the year. I wanted to be sure that this year I express my thanks to you. Thank you so much for having the patience for getting through the wonderful Christmas and Spring dance recitals. Those must be a lot of work and when it's over I often wonder how you do it. Thank you so much for having the patience and motherly advice in dealing with my strong willed child at times. I am so glad that we all were able to work that out together. I really appreciate it!!! Sometimes rough, but we got through it and she is still with you!!! Thank you so much for always trying to make life easier and more convenient for us parents. We all have busy schedules and I really appreciate the time and effort you put into my child's life in making it the best experience for her. Thank you for keeping a well kept facility for my child to come to. I really enjoy all the colors and how large your dance rooms are. My child has been with you for 4 years and I look forward to all the memories we will experience in the future together!!! Thank you to all of you You are all a blessing to us! C. R.
To everyone, I am BW's grandmother (nana) and I just wanted to thank you all for the wonderful job you have done teaching B and all the little girls. I live in Illinois and was able to attend B's first recital. I was so pleased at how well they all did! It brought me to tears. I was never able to put my daughters in dance and I'm so glad B has the opportunity. It's a great thing. It must be very hard to get a group of little girls to be so disciplined. Great Job. Thank You S. Z
Dear Diane & Co., I had intended on writing as soon a L indicated she would not be taking dance this fall - I apologize for my tardiness. Let me say that we thoroughly enjoyed our association with Savelli Dance. You, Michelle, Sam, Juliette and Sarah taught L so much and I know it was difficult for her to make this decision. L is starting a new school and she realizes that the "newness" of the school and her desire to participate in sports will require lots of time and much emotional energy as well. While I am excited for all of the opportunity and experiences that lie ahead for her, I mourn our past involvement and relationships - Savelli Dance is one of those. Thank you for your years of professional and excellent instruction - I most admire the talent of your family and the loyalty and dedication you show to one and other. I would also like to tell you how impressed I have always been with the gentlemen associated with the Kung-Fu Studio. When they help at recitals they are always so courteous to young and old alike. This speaks volumes for your entire organizations.Best of luck and continued success. I do not hesitate in recommending you to anyone. Fondly, S. K.
Dear Diane, I know you probably always just hear the complaints and that is why I am taking the time to compliment you and Juliette on your great teaching abilities. You two are the greatest teachers around. I can easily go somewhere closer to home, here in Euclid, but I would never get the same results for L. She just loves you two very much. Thanks for another great year! Love D. S.
Dear Diane, I wanted to write to you and let you know what a fabulous job (again) you did with the kids at this years recital! I just don't know how you do it! But for the second year in a row I've been amazed at how smoothly things ran and how wonderful all the costumes and performers were. C of course loves her dance classes and really enjoyed her teacher this year, but as with last year, the recital adds a whole new level of excitement for her. Right after the first and second show she just kept saying, "How fun, that's so much fun!" And as for D being only 5 years old, I wasn't even sure what his feelings were. As classes started, I saw a kid in love with Karate! Every day he practiced and every Wednesday he would come home with something new to show - and quite determined to master every skill! I couldn't believe this was my kid - We constantly heard about Mr. Mike and Mr. Matt and how great they were. In today's world when so many people don't know what to do with their children, I am so glad that there are people like you with programs like yours to make a difference in our children's lives. In closing Diane, just one more "thank you" for all your help. If there is ever any way I can return your wonderful favor please do not hesitate to ask. We are looking forward to hearing from you!! Sincerely E. W.
An untitled poem . . .Could I but find the words to give justice for all that you have done, I would say them without cease until moon gave way to sun. But there is no word I'm sure, that can express all that you have meant, And yet I must try to find one, for my time with you is spent. I couldn't have appraised your kindness, had tried all my years of ten and seven, I may as wise have tried to number every star in heaven. For I am a common girl, this will always remain the same, I will never write a great novel, and there is no monument in my name. But the art that you have taught me will forever be, Something I'll carry with me as a means to keep me free. Though I am clumsy and unsteady, my heart is steadfast and strong, So that I may chase my hopes and dreams, and so all my life long, I can dance through the rich times and dance through the poor, And then know I'll forever have the spirit to endure. Dance through times of sickness and dance through times of health, For in my heart of hearts there is no greater wealth. And when I stand vis a vis with St. Peter at his gate, I will be ready to dance right through them to meet my eternal fate. And I will recall deep within as I am passing through . . .That I was a better person for having known you. by: D. R.
