Both my children have absolutely thrived since joining NHAD over eight years ago. They have learnt so much in so many ways - not just in dancing skills and performance ability, but also in confidence, teamwork and behaviour. Kelly, LJ and Katy work so hard to nurture the very best out of every child, NHAD is a wonderful school that provides so much support and fantastic opportunities. And it's a place that the kids have so much fun and love to go to. Plus it's great to know that my children are being taught by qualified teachers who truly care about their welfare. Thank you Kelly xx
My daughter has been dancing with NHAD for 13+ years spending many hours a week in the studio getting the best teaching you can get around! Kelly has been an inspiration and knows how to bring the best out of all her students. We love her patience, her dedication to the school and all the dancers, her strong focus on technique and her beautiful choreography. Thank you Kelly!
My daughters have been at the dance school for over 2 years. In this time they have been lucky enough to represent NHAD in numerous competitions and have enjoyed much personal and team based success. This would not have happened without the fantastic technical training from Kelly and Katy. Their teaching techniques are hugely effective, encouraging and supporting students at all times. To them, every student matters. With fully qualified dance teachers, I know my girls are in safe hands. Kelly leads by example ensuring that NHAD has a welcoming and nurturing environment which has helped the girls with their dancing and personal development enormously. Laura-Jane has recently joined the teaching faculty, her energy is infectious and the students love her! I am incredibly grateful to Kelly, her teachers, the parents and students for their support, belief, guidance and friendship.
My daughter loves her dance lessons at NHAD, she has grown in confidence and the opportunities she's had to perform have been fantastic. Kelly and the team of teachers are amazing, the older students take the younger ones under their wings, supporting and encouraging them, they are fab role models. I'd highly recommend NHAD!
Not only has our Grandson's love of dance been nurtured and fully supported by the amazing team at NHAD, led by the very talented Kelly Hopkins, but also by his fellow dance students who encourage each other in everything they do.
I am so pleased I decided to contact Kelly Hopkins to ask about my son trying some classes out at NHAD. From that first day Joe has loved every minute of it, his love for dance and performing has grown hugely and his confidence amazes me, this is due to the brilliant skills he has learnt from Kelly and the other brilliant teachers at NHAD, Katy and Laura-Jane. The support from Kelly, the teachers and all of Joe's fellow dance friends is outstanding, he says they are like his second family. We are very grateful for the opportunities Joe has already had the fortunate of taking part in and I have no doubt his love for performing will grow and grow and one day he will get to live his dream. This is all thanks to the wonderful Kelly and NHAD xxx
My daughter only recently started lessons with NHAD, but we have been welcomed with open arms. Kelly and her team offer fun, productive lessons with the opportunity to reach the next level, if so desired. My daughter has progressed greatly in the last term and now has a renewed love for dance, which can only be down to the way she is being taught at NHAD. A massive thank you to Kelly and all her teachers.
My daughter attends the North Hampshire Academy of Dance dance school. She has excelled and her confidence has grown since she started. She has so many opportunities as a dancer, dancing at the Royal Albert Hall in London, auditioning for pantomimes, performing in festivals and competitions and being able to show case her talents in the school's dance shows. The school boasts a friendly, caring atmosphere and the principal and school dance teachers are supportive, friendly, caring and will help the dancers achieve their goals and have fun! We've never looked back :0). Natasha and Neve.
The North Hampshire Academy of Dance (NHAD) is a wonderful place for young people to learn and develop their dance skills as well as their confidence. My daughter started and needed lots of nurturing and support and I am very grateful to the teachers for the growth in her abilities and self- esteem. There is an ethos of team work and strong morals than run from the top throughout the academy to the children. The choice of classes is fantastic and the opportunities for development are also great. The kids are often praised both on behaviour and their improvement.
I will never forget the day my daughter and I found North Hampshire Academy of Dance. I cannot recommend Kelly Hopkins and her NHAD team for their high standard of personal care and passion in teaching. Kelly's foresight and hard work have enabled my daughter to achieve her dream. Thank you Kelly.
My daughter attends classes with kelly and Katie. I travel from Alton as I feel this dance school is the best in my area. Kelly is an extremely professional teacher who tends to each child's needs and help to get the best out of them. I have always felt very welcome within the school, everyone is very friendly and the older children always look out for the younger ones! Kelly is extremely helpful and willing to help any student who wishes to continue into the dance world. I thoroughly recommend NHAD. Wonderful dance school.
My daughter trained at North Hampshire Academy of Dance before undertaking a professional dance diploma in London at Millennium Performing Arts. The principal, Kelly Hopkins is a dedicated and excellent teacher in all disciplines and ensured my daughter had excellent training throughout her time at the school. There is a strong feeling of belonging at the school and everyone is encouraged to reach their full potential.
