What Our Students Say...

"My two daughters have been dancing with Lucy since they were two and a half, starting with Mini Modern and moving on to Freestyle once they started school. Lucy has been amazing with both of them. She's given them so much confidence to do exams and shows. They still regularly watch the video from the last show as they're so proud of it. Lucy has such a bright, positive personality that it makes them both feel at ease and they love seeing her each week and learning the new dances."

Lauren

"My daughter dances with Weston Dance Academy once a week at the moment, in their preparatory ballet class. She has always received constructive guidance during practice and praise for her achievements. Lucy has a fantastic positive attitude towards each performer and keeps in touch with news and updates regularly. Having participated in classes in other dance schools in the area, this school has been the most supportive and understanding of personal circumstances."

Marie

"I have been attending Adult Tap and Adult Back to the Boogie for over a year. Both classes are really fun and engaging and i love learning all of the different routines with Lucy and Jackie who make the classes lots of fun!"
