"I joined the company in September 2015 and I can't believe I have already been here for a year. I have really enjoyed learning new dance forms especially for someone who isn't a trained dancer. Everyone at the company are really lovely and Faye is a great teacher. The adult classes are particularly fun...it's never too late to dance no matter what age you are. Definitely recommend it !!"
Shilpa, Adult Commercial dancer

"The Company has given me the opportunity to improve my dance ability - I've become more flexible, more techincally able and much more confident when I dance."
Abigail Ball, 16, Advanced Corps
"We've been at The Company for just over a year now and we've excelled in our dance and improved more than we could ever have imagined. Everyone is so welcoming and friendly as is always willing to help you if you are stuck. The teachers are great abd we've had some super choreographers in and can't wait for the rest of the time we are at The Company."
Melissa Kolic and Megan Oldfield, 14, Senior Corps
"I have been a member of The Company since it started in 2013. I have continued to audition year after year not only because I enjoy it so much but I also love how much it challenges and improves me. The dance routines are always original and of a mixture of styles and techniques, making them demanding and authentic. Not only are we taught routines we also perform these as a company at a variety of locations and events, such as the ‘Make Your Move’ British Red Cross dance competition. The amount of performance experience you receive as a member of The Company is great and always at a high level of performance or competition. As a young dance academy The Company will only continue to grow and get better with each year.
During lessons we also have technique sections where everyone is pushed depending on their personal level of skills. Despite being hard these sessions are always rewarding as you feel challenged and improved!
Trips to London and Pineapple Dance Studios have become an annual event; this opportunity is great and allows dancers to experience dance in a professional environment. As a company we also get chance to work with other dancers and form bonds with fellow performers, meaning a friendly and therefore comfortable environment is always in place."
