“The Lori Allen Dance Center, and Miss Lori in particular, has been a huge influence in our family  life.  It’s been more than just attending dance classes.  The students bond with each other as well as with the teachers, creating a unique atmosphere that’s great for learning as well as growing as a person.  Going to class at the Lori Allen Dance Center is like going to visit a family member – one who just happens to be a professional dance teacher!   As well as becoming phenomenal dancers, both of my kids have had a wonderful, positive influence in their lives by being involved for over 15 years with the Lori Allen Dance Center.  I would highly recommend Lori Allen over all the other dance studios in the area.” 


Thank you Miss Lori!  Jen



Lori Allen Dance Center promotes a nurturing environment that focuses on teaching strong foundational technique and developing self confidence. Miss Lori and her teachers are caring, professional and fun! My daughter always looks forward to going to class and we all enjoy the performances. After going to a couple of different dance schools in the South Hills I realized that Lori Allen Dance Center is truly one of a kind and gives my daughter an education that goes above and beyond what other studios try to provide.       






"My daughter has been with the Lori Allen Dance Center for 10 years and we are very happy with how she has grown as a dancer and a person. Lori Allen and her teachers really care about the students and treat them as if they were their own. Wouldn't send my daughter anywhere else!"






The Lori Allen Dance Center was never just a dance studio to me; it was my second home. I started dancing for Miss Lori when I was 3 years old, and just recently performed in my last recital for her at the age of 18.  Miss Lori did not just watch me grow as a dancer, she watched me grow as a person.  She trained us with excellent technique and prepared us to be dancers, but she always did so in a “class act” way.  Our happiness always came first to her, and she would do anything for us.  I knew every time I went to class that I was going with my second family.  All of our teachers at the studio were there to help us in dance and in life, and I am so lucky to have Miss Lori as my second mom. I love you, Miss Lori!

Our daughter just completed 15 years of dance at the Lori Allen Dance Center.  We cannot say enough about Miss Lori and her staff.  We always knew when we would drop our daughter off for class that she would be in great hands.  We never had to worry about inappropriate dance choreography or dance costumes.  Our daughter was trained in all the classical dance genres.  This helped her with making the dance team in high school and being captain her senior season and making the advanced level at the dance theatre in college.  Miss Lori and her teachers were her second family.  She has gained so much confidence being under Miss Lori’s care.  Not only is Miss Lori a great teacher, but she is a wonderful role model.  Our daughter became a great dancer but most importantly, a better person because of Miss Lori.  We will forever be a part of the Lori Allen Dance Center!
