“So many enthusiastic potential full-time students (and many parents too) enjoyed a packed day! They observed a wide range of student dance classes including jazz, commercial dance, contemporary and ballet; they took part in a dance workshop and watched a fabulous demo of current work by our talented, hardworking students – I am very pleased and proud!”
