This is the best dance school in town! Well disciplined and Miss Sue has numerous qualifications displayed throughout the school. Always achieving excellent exam results and the shows they put on are fantastic. My daughter dances there 4 days a week and would go more if I would let her!! Highly recommended.

My daughter has been attending this Dance School since she was 3 years old and now 15½ later she is reluctantly having to leave as she is going to University. But intends to pop in for the occasional dance lesson when she is home during holidays. She has danced in London at Her Majestys Theatre and The Queens Theatre in the West End. She danced at the Dome in 2000. She has appeared in numerous dance school shows and at the Civic Theatre. She became a Student Teacher at the dance school and also passed all her exams in Ballet, Tap, Modern, Acro, Lyrical, Song & Dance and Choreography. Miss Sue is an experienced and dedicated teacher, teaching both girls and boys to a very high standard.

Great shop, everything we needed for our five year old. Good service, the staff really know their stuff. We had bought stuff elsewhere previously but the quality of these items was much better, and the prices were also reasonable.
