The thing I love about Studio K is how accommodating everyone is. I have a health issue because of the lights, and several people have gone out of their way to make it so I can attend classes. I also got a phone call once that a class had to be cancelled, just in case I was planning on going so I wouldn’t make the drive. You don’t have to be a a professional dancer to keep up, and I always have fun whether I’m getting a good workout or learning new ballroom steps. Everyone is super nice, the classes offered are different than ones I’ve seen at other studios, it’s ridiculously clean, no kids, tons of parking…what’s not to love?

My fiance Julie and I are members of Studio K. We really enjoy attending the dance classes and try to make it there at least 1-2 times a week. Because of Studio K, we were able to loosen up a little (we’re not much of dancers) and in hopes to learn new dance skills for our wedding next year. We will continue to dance hard and stay in shape till our BIG day. See you soon!

We walked into Studio K to learn a choreographed dance for our wedding song… we left with friends and a memory that will last a lifetime. The moment my husband Chris and I walked into the door we new we had discovered the best kept secret in Orlando. Studio K does something that most businesses have unfortunately lost sight of… they focus on the little things, which are really the big things. From the carefully selected kind, talented, and passionate staff to the continuous efforts to meet the needs of their customers, this place is a breath of fresh air.

It didn’t take us long to realize that our private instructor, Michael, is an expert in his craft; his ability to translate a choreographed dance to our learning style was impressive. A magnificent dancer himself, Michael made it possible for two people, who had never taken a dance lesson before, to tell a love story through a dance that was personalized to our characters. Little did my husband and I know that, through many laughs and triumph, this process would bring us even closer.

Now that I have found such a great escape, I stay connected to Studio K through their group classes (my favorite is country line dancing), the best part about coming to these classes is the warm welcome and the lack of intimidation; while the motives for coming to Studio K are broad, from beginners who are simply there to get in better shape, to seasoned dancers who are there to refine their talent, no-one emphasizes on your skill level, or why you are there…they are just glad you’re there.

If you believe that a business is only as strong as its leadership then it’s easy to see why Studio K is so successful; Kristin’s professionalism and genuineness cascades throughout her whole team. Michael, I will always remember you as being a part of the creation of a great memory… and I’ll remember our laughs too (bottoms up J) I guess the best compliment I could offer Studio K is… if I was the owner of this business, I wouldn’t change a thing!

Tracy Wiu – Dance Member

With two jobs, a one-hour commute to and from work each day, and a busy freelance acting career, it’s no wonder that I suffer from anxiety. I’ve had anxiety issues for over five years and my therapist keeps reminding me that exercise would be a great cure – unfortunately, I hate going to the gym. So I decided to give dancing a try, though I was nervous because I hadn’t set a foot on a dance floor in over 10 years.

I have been a member of Studio K since day one and it has changed my life. I no longer suffer from anxiety, I haven’t been back to my therapist in months, and I feel more confident and energetic than I have in years!

I love the camaraderie at Studio K. The members encourage each other and support each other’s goals – whether it’s to become a better dancer or to lose weight. It is a safe and fun place and I cannot imagine where I would be had Studio K not opened.
Dancing has literally cured me. Although I don’t consider myself a dancer, I feel proud, confident, and alive when I dance. I haven’t had a panic attack since I started dancing again and I believe that is the reason for it. And to top it all off, I’ve lost about 7 pounds in the process.

Sandy Pardo – Dance Instructor

Since the day I met with Kristin for the first time I knew something good was coming my way, and I wasn’t mistaken. She gave me an opportunity without knowing my work or me, and I took it as if she trusted me with something very important. She believed in me, and since then I have been trying to bring the best out of each Zumba dancer – to make them feel at home, to make them happy, to make them feel as welcomed as Kristin and Studio K has made me feel since I gave my first class at the studio.

This is a place where you feel comfortable and accepted. Nobody judges you, nobody treats you as if you do not belong, Everybody welcomes you every single day with a big smile from the moment you walk through its doors. All the instructors give one hundred-percent in every class whether there are 5 people or 50 attending the classes. The members are as grateful to us as we are to them for being there, always giving us their best.

I love my job (well, it cannot be considered a “job” when you are partying for an hour every time), and when I enter the Studio I love it even more because I feel the energy, the good energy all around me.

I will always be grateful because every time I have the best of times at Studio K! THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart!

Studio K not only provides a wide array of fun fitness classes, but also a warm and inviting environment. The owner, Kristin, along with her staff, Sarah and Jacki, are motivating and concerned with each one of their members. I always look forward to each class and forget that I am doing something that is actually beneficial to my health! There is a class for everyone and it doesn’t matter if you can’t dance just as long as you keep moving, which is one thing the instructors care about! Each instructor offers their own style to the studio and pushes us to be the best we can be, which is exactly what is needed. Whatever goals you may set for yourself, the staff at Studio K will help you reach them! The hours that they are open are very convenient and they offer awesome workshops (and you can’t beat their prices)!

Joining Studio K changed my life and made me realize that being physically active can be fun, especially when surrounded by such positive people. I used to be a dancer and after a knee injury I was never able to dance on the level that I used to. After taking Zumba for the first time, I was reminded of my love for dance and couldn’t stop! I’m so glad I was introduced to Zumba and other kinds of exercise that I wouldn’t have even considered – I have Studio K to thank for it all!

Kristin:

I wanted to personally thank you and Studio K for being such an integral part of most recent endeavors here in the Central Florida area.

As our agency of choice, Studio K has helped out RTC Entertainment tremendously on our latest Children’s comedy concert at the Hard Rock Live this past January, where we bussed in over 6000 3rd-5th graders from area schools. You worked within our budget, guided us, and helped facilitate media coverage that other wise would have been difficult to attain.

Your thoughtfulness and consideration toward our goal was without question more than we could of asked for. Your passion for the arts is more than evident in your work and your agency/studio can only benefit the Central Florida area.

As a client of Studio K, I hope that we will continue to work together on future projects, as I value your work ethic, professionalism, commitment, loyalty and input.

We thank you again, and wish you and the staff at Studio K all the best! Great job!

Kristin:

This note is to thank you for opening Studio K. For me it has been a motivation to exercise and get healthy while having fun. Since I started dancing, I have lost weight and measurements but most importantly, my blood pressure has become normal and I am no longer on medication.

I enjoy every class, especially because of the friendly atmosphere and the excellent instructors that you have, find a new friend in each one of the members and of your staff.

Thank you again for the great service you provide. I am looking forward to dancing at Studio K.

Michael Shroeder – Instructor

With 20 years in the dance industry, it is a joy to be an instructor at Central Florida’s Studio K! Under the direction and ownership of Kristin Weissman, everyone who enters the studio feels wanted, needed and appreciated, whether they be staff or student. For many it is difficult to step out of the “comfort zone” and try something such as dancing to enhance one’s life. However, at Studio K with the kind and caring staff, once you have entered the studio you feel safe and at home.

As an artist, freedom is vital in expressing my love of dance to all students. With previous studios the concern was more reaching sales goals versus reaching for the stars through service. We all appreciate when we are listened to and are able to offer our own suggestions, especially as a performer and an artist. Kristin is always open to suggestions allowing Studio K to grow, hence the 20 different dance styles offered to date to truly give something for everyone.

Alex Camman – Photographer

To me, photography is all about capturing the moment. One needs to be at the right place, at the right time, and there is no better place to be than Studio K in Orlando. The atmosphere that Studio K has is like nothing I’ve ever experienced before. The studio staff is very welcoming and loving, and is more than willing to help to make sure you are comfortable with your surroundings. I’ve never worked anywhere where the CEO of the company is there everyday, making sure everything, and everyone is accommodated and properly treated. Kristin is by far the best boss I have ever worked for and she created Studio K to highlight the arts community of Central Florida to ensure the talented dancers, photographers, and artists shine. She treats her guests and employees with love and respect. There is no one better suited for the job.
