Being a Tutterow Dancer doesn't just mean going to a studio and learning dances, its about much more. When entering your class, you are greeted by your best friends who have become your family. Tutterow is a place where everyone, including the teachers are caring and friendly. The teachers strive for you to do better everyday in a positive way. I Love coming to dance class. I am proud to say that I have been a Tutterow Dancer for 13 years.

My daughters were very unhappy at their past studio. My oldest has been dancing for 10 years and my youngest has danced for 5 years. After auditioning for the Tutterow Stars of Tomorrow at Tutterows their frowns turned upside down. My girls were welcomed with open arms and made new friends quickly. The dancers and staff were so friendly and professional.

My girls are learning the correct names for all dance steps and are shown how to do these steps the correct way. They are so excited that they settled right in and are learning dance in a positive fun atmosphere. For the first time in their dance careers they are so proud to tell everyone where they dance. Thank you Debbie Kennedy and the Tutterow staff for making my daughters' smile and love dance again

Tutterow Stars of Tomorrow Is a spectacular dance team inspiring confidence and integrity in the young dedicated performance artists of our community.

 Hello Ms Debbie , I just wanted to take a minute to say how wonderful the classes were last night that Ava took! She learned more last night than she has in the two years she has been taking dance elsewhere and the teachers and the helpers were all wonderful with kids!!

She was SO happy last night after her classes she said she can’t wait to go back!

Thank you! Leslie


Tutterow Dancers is a fabulous dance studio. The director and her staff are courteous, dedicated, professional, and knowledgeable in the art of dance. Both of my daughters are students in the recreational classes and the performance company. They absolutely love it! They have been exposed to many different styles of dance and a variety of music.

They have also been given opportunities to perform on stage and throughout the community. Over the past couple of years, they have built special relationships with the staff, fellow classmates and other dancers, along with special “performance” memories which they will be able to treasure for a long time.

For the past four years I am proud to say that I have been a part of the well known, award winning team of Tutterow Dancers. All of the teachers are friendly, professional, and fun!! They also push us so we strive to do our best. I have really grown as a dancer as well as a person and have made many new friends.

It has been a great experience dancing at Tutterow!

What quality representatives of the Florida dance community we have in the Tutterow Dancers, under the tuteledge of Debbie Kennedy! She has continued to raise the standards of discipline, technical prowess and artistry that carries the legacy to new levels of accomplishments!

Tutterrow is MORE than a place to learn dance...it is a place where families meet. Our dancers have grown up together and they are all family to each other. Relationships are built and kept. The quality and consistencey of Tutterow dance instruction is outstanding! The classes are taught by experienced, caring, talented teachers. My kids LOVE it!

My child was having difficulty with self-esteem and concentration in school. Dancing at Tutterow for the last several years has taught him focus, balance, patience, teamwork, but most of all that he is important! Thanks Tutterow!

When I was searching for a qualiifed dance studio for my children, 2 out of 3 parents I asked chose Tutterow. They have a long-standing reputation in the community as an award winning studio. I found that it still holds true today! Their level of skill and professionalism far exceeds others in the area.

Tutterow not only provides quality dance instruction for beginners, but it has an excellent dance team that competes every year.

Last year they travelled to Germany! What an experience for them!

My 9-year old daughter is (was) very shy, so much so that when I used to introduce her to new people she stood behind me. Her world (and ours) changed when she attended  a Tutterow Dancers summer camp with the City of Largo. For the first time EVER she was excited and passionate about something. Summer camp then led to dance classes... and here we are almost 1 year later.

Tutterow has ignited a true "spark." We noticed almost immediately changes in her personality and talking nonstop when we picked her up.  The support structure that is provided and the sense of belonging that my daughter has as part of a larger group is great as well, but more importantly to us, her individual personality came out. She is a changed person for the better.

Dancing has become the "carrot" for her because it means so much. We thank Ms. Debbie and the rest of her outstanding staff.  - Maria Kadau

Both recitals were awesome and the dancers were great. Lindsey has enjoed another year of dance with you, Ms Mandy and Ms Mary.

I think she would live at dance if possible. Thank you for all the sweat, tears and caring it took to take a small girl years ago and turn her into a competent dancer.


Hi Mrs. Debbie!

This is a little overdue, and I'm sorry about that but as I'm packing for college I'm looking at my dance pictures and tutterow gear. I just wanted to let you know how grateful I am that you and everyone else was so welcoming to me this past year. Without dance, my senior year would have not been nearly as great as it was and dancing with tutterow made it close to perfect!

I have never felt more welcomed or a part of a family at any other studio. So thank you so much and I will definitely be back to visit!

Love, Emily Allard-Phillips

We Love Tutterow Dance! I have 2 daughters who dance at Tutterow. This is my oldest daughters 3rd year and my youngest just started this year. They both love going to class! They are greeted by friendly staff who are very helpful and patient with the students; best of all, they are excited to be there teaching the children.

I think one of the best things that my daughters have gained from being Tutterow dancers is confidence. The teachers encourage the students to do their best and give them opportunities to perform for their classmates as well as community members in the recitals. They look forward to each one of their classes. It is a pretty long drive for us at 30 minutes each way but it's worth it.

We are glad that we found Tutterow!
