“My PowerPak experience helped my realize how empowering the dance world can be. The diverse classes challenged me and the faculty and staff offered me endless encouragement, helping me gain a new found confidence in my dancing. The Power Pak family is an incredible one, and one that I see myself staying connected with forever.”

“My daughter has attended Power Pak for the past 3 years. She looks forward to it all year. The staff is fun, fresh & super talented. She has had the opportunity of working with so many wonderful choreographers and performed at Downtown Disney! She has also won scholarships to compete and further her education. The friendships that she made will last forever.”

Gail Willadsen-Criscione from Staten Island, NY
(Power Pak Parent and Studio Owner/Director) 

“Like many young and passionate dancers, I grew up traveling to hundreds of competitions through the years and have tons of memories that I have taken with me. There have been very few that have had such an impact on me as Power Pak has. For years I have told my studio parents and even fellow dancers how wonderful the experience is. I encourage my little ones to go when they are selected, but words honestly don't do justice. Over a decade later I still keep in touch with several of the dancers I that were in Power Pak with me and have watched us grow from high school, to college, to starting families of our own, reuniting all over the country from New York City to Texas. It taught me how to be professional and learn new choreography to perform within a week and how to mesh as a team that you have never met before. Through the professionalism and confidence it gave me, I do believe it helped kick start me to grow into my career as an NFL Cheerleader, performer, and educator.”

“Power Pak is always a fun and educational experience for my dancers. The Master Classes are extremely beneficial and the guest choreographers are always top notch. My dancers also look forward to performing in the opening number of the Battle of the Stars. The routines are well rehearsed and very entertaining. I will continue to encourage my dancers to attend this prestigious workshop.”

“I have experienced Power Pak as a participant, a team leader, an assistant & now as a choreographer. As a child, it changed my life. As a professional, I watch it change hundreds of kids’ lives every summer. Of all my accomplishments, this program is what I am most proud of. 8 of 20 of my company members are Power Pak Alumni. It’s a bond and family you take with you forever.”
