“There is hardly any place my daughter and son would rather be! Opus' beloved owners Allan and Marie and the incredible, inspired teachers have created a truly rare community where students feel accepted, encouraged, and challenged towards excellence all at once. The fact that Opus manages to sustain such a joyful atmosphere of fun while also maintaining a rigorous commitment to technique sets Opus apart from other dance schools.”
“We tried several dance schools before we found our home at Opus. Bellingham's dancers are lucky to have the fantastic instructors at Opus. Real technique is the focus here, in a compassionate and supportive environment. The studio owners are welcoming to all new students.”
“Something unexpected but wonderful Opus brought to our lives is the excellent reviews the teachers give for each student at the end of a semester. Teachers take a great deal of time to write about each child, where they are with technique, how they do in class, where they shine, where they need improvement, and then thoughtfully place each child in the correct class for the next semester. I love pouring over these reviews and being part of the process with the teachers.”
“Opus provides such a welcoming and supportive environment with high expectations. All teachers are professional and passionate at what they do. They give amazing individual attention to each student and kids can progress as fast as they can.”
“Something that really sets Opus apart is the level of attention to foundational technique. The way the classes are built make sure that the alignment and technique are spot on so that further more difficult steps can be done safely and bad habits are not built. At Opus there is a system so that students can be safe and ready when they begin pointe work.”
"Our daughter has been dancing at Opus since she was 3 years old, and I can not say enough good things about Opus and the Community they have built. The Owners are THE BEST- so welcoming and friendly- they truly have put their hearts into the building and business. The schedules are posted clearly, easy to communicate with and accommodating with special requests/needs.
The teachers are wonderful- so much knowledge is brought into each classroom. They know how to bring fun to the class as well. They clearly care for the kids- teaching them to be well rounded humans- not only on the dance floor, but off. Thank you, Opus, for all you have been for our family! We look forward to class every week because of you!"
“One thing that I feel makes Opus special is the spectacular productions. It's not every day that you get to perform in a show as diverse as the Spring Showcase or as ambitious as the Nutcracker, with gorgeous handmade costumes and sets in the historic Mt. Baker Theater."
