We are proud of our reputation. Hear what our clients have to say about The HST...

The Hollywood summer tour was truly an experience of a lifetime. Not only has it furthered my dance education and career, it has also opened the door for other great opportunities to come! Thank you so much Menina for being an amazing role model and showing me that dreams really do come true! The great friends and memories I made during the HST, I will cherish for the rest of my life! Hope to see ya next year!! 

I just wanted to thank you for the amazing HST Teenz experience for my daughter Jen. She came home a truly changed girl - both more mature as well as much more confident. She took away so many positives from the week with you and I have been raving to everyone I know with young dancers to join the HST next year!! Keep doing what you do Menina- a very good value and a very valuable week! 
~ Corrie Gray (mother)

The HST was not only the greatest dance experience I have ever had but also a completely unique way of giving dancers a taste of what the real dance industry is like. Thank you from the bottom of my heart Menina for allowing me to share in this once in a lifetime experience and sharing your knowledge of the industry with me.  I cannot wait to reunite and see you all again! I love you all; and again, thank you so so so much Menina for the best experience of my life!

It was more than I had imagined and we fell in love with L.A. Hannah Russell learned so many things from all of the people you brought in to teach them, both in dance and seminars. Our eyes were definitely opened and opportunities feel more within our grasp. Meeting dancers from all over, people with the same passion for dance was awesome, and we have both made some wonderful friends that we hope to keep in contact with. Thank You once again, ~ Theresa Russell (mother)

HST was the best experience ever. I am so thankful for the opportunity because of all the lifetime memories I made and because of all the things I learned about dance and my future. Don't ever let this opportunity pass you by because you will never get a chance like this again.

This program was the best thing that has ever happened to me! I met the most incredible and inspiring people on this trip.  I am so thankful for this wonderful opportunity and for all the people that made it possible for me to attend this wonderful learning experience.   This is the best way to start off your career as a professional dancer! 

I wanted to send a HUGE thank you for a wonderful week. You had every detail of the week planned perfectly. A lot of wonderful dance training plus enough time for fun. Kudos to you for promoting such a positive atmosphere. It was great to be in a program that promotes and motivates each other. We truly were a family by the end of the week

When you are a part of The Hollywood Summer Tour, you are surrounded by people who want the best for you, who share the same goals as you, and are crazy talented... it's indescribable. I'm so happy that I was chosen for this program. This was no doubt the best dance opportunity I have ever been given!!!!!

- Heather Anderson (mother)

I have never been apart of a program more educational and fun all at the same time. I absolutely loved being immersed in LA. Made so many amazing friendships with beautiful people. I am so grateful for Menina accepting me into the program. I will never forget this experience. So much love for HST!

Amalia had an amazing week of sightseeing, meeting new friends, danced all over LA with awesome teachers, had the opportunity to be on camara, and even got to see a real show being filmed. She couldn't wait to get back home and work harder then ever!

We have made great friends and wonderful memories. It was a pleasure watching each of these amazing dancers on a daily basis. I wish each of them a lifetime of success. Thank you  for putting together such an informatively and fun program. The experiences you provided are priceless.

Thank you Menina for these two weeks i've learned so much because of you and i hope i will be able to repay you for this great opportunity that you've given us. Much love and happiness to all dancers of the world now LETS TEAR THAT FLOOR APART YA'LL!!!!!!

The HST was absolutely one of the greatest things to ever happen to me. Not only was the non-stop dancing super fun, but the people I met there was incredible. Waking up in the morning and knowing that you have a full dance of dance ahead of you was actually amazing. I fully recommend this program because no one will ever regret it! 

I'm not sure if our lives will ever be the same...the opportunities and experiences for my daughter will forever be something we will cherish. Amazingly, Maddie learned far more than just dance.  I miss already being around others 24/7 who understand this world we live. Thank you HST for a lifetime opportunity!

I do not think it is possible to put into words how this program has affected my life. i got the opportunity to live my dream with the best of the best. it was such a great feeling to experience this with people that all share a common passion. I cant thank you enough for everything you did for me. 

I just can't live without this. HST is the best thing that has ever happened to me. I can not believe what this one week has brought me. I am so honored to have been apart of this experience. Tears, Passion, Strength, Courage and determination!!! God Bless those around me. Love you Menina! Thank you!!!

I can honestly and wholeheartedly say that the hollywood summer tour changed my life.  I now leave the program with the knowledge and confidence that I could make it as a professional dancer. Thank you so much Menina for everything because without you none of this would have been possible. LOVE YOU

From a parents perspective: If you ever have the opportunity to do this for your child, make it happen!!  This program was a perfect balance of intense dance classes, industry exposure and fun Hollywood style.....I think she's already planning her return trip
