"I have two children at the dance school. They have always been very welcoming, kind and patient.

They have worked consistently to enable my children, whom have anxiety and additional needs, to be able to not only access the dance classes but to grow in confidence and pride.

So much so that my 7 year old just took part in her first ballet exam. My 11 year old with additional needs has grown so much in confidence at the school that she attends with enthusiasm and excitement."
"My daughter has attended the dance school ever since she was three years old, she is now thirteen.

She has loved every minute of it. She has learnt an incredible amount and has gained confidence from extremely experienced and dedicated teachers.

She has learnt to be disciplined but most importantly of all she has lots of fun and has made great friends along the way.

The dance school has been a huge part of our lives and I could not recommend it highly enough."
"I started ballet at the ripe old age of 59, never having had lessons before. I was really fortunate to have Sarah Anne Westcott (Miss Anne!) as my teacher, as her patience and perseverance with me worked miracles.

I achieved a distinction in my BBO Grades 1 to 3 examinations and a merit in Grade 4. I then switched to the Performance Award examination preparation and gained a distinction at Grade 6. I am now working towards Grade 7!

I am 71 years old, and I know that without such excellent training I should have given up years ago."
