Complaint Review: All That Jazz Dance Academy - Hamilton New Jersey
All That Jazz Dance Academy Debby Delpopolo Sham and a Fraud. Owner uses a bait and switch scam to lure you in and out of money Hamilton New Jersey
We found this dance studio highly advertised. When we went to the studio it was in a low income housing developement with limited parking and no seating for parents. However, the dance lessons were very cheap per month so we kept an open mind. The owner only wanted cash, which should have been our first red flag. As the months pergressed, the owner told us we were two months behind in our payments. Since we paid cash, and had no reciept, we were forced to pay the extra two months or our child would not be able to participate in the big dance finale. After our child practiced for months for the finale we were told we would have to purchase two dance outfits from the owner. Those outfits were $250.00. Then we had to purchase special leatards at $35.00. When it came time to conduct the dress rehersal, we were charged $5.00 per person to get into the rented dance hall. On the day of the recital, we were charged $5.00 per person to get my child into the dance hall and my family was charged $30.00 per ticket. We were not permited to video and we ended up paying $65.00 for a very poor quality video. To make matters worse, there were police officers stationed all over the dance hall. It made for a very uncomfortable night. The bottom line was we were charged very little for dance instruction, asked to pay twice, then overcharged for simple items if we wanted to see our child in the dance finale. Cecillia - Hamilton, NJ
