Even in a serious competitive dance world we try our best to not to be

afraid of enjoying life to it's fullest. We as not just coaches but as a family try to teach our kids that it's okay to laugh at yourself, know when it's time to take things serious but also to enjoy life without it becoming too overwhelming. We have created two YouTube channels to share our stories with the world and inspire everyone to love your life through whatever challenges may come up. Our FRIDLEY4DISNEY channel is about our love & passion for Disney and travel adventures to Walt Disney World theme parks. Our DANCE SPOT FAMILY VLOGS is a vlogging channel that follows all the adventures of running a small town dance studio as a unique out of the box Mother - Daughter team and how much we truly love the dance competition world. We may not seem like your typical dance studio staff but then again our studio is not your average dance competition training facility so it makes sense that we are so different then any other dance family you will enjoy to get to know.
