Reviews

Freya just loves her Ballet classes at Thorrington Dance Academy so much!

I hear all about it all week until the day and she literally dives into her with excitement!

It is such a great way for all ages to keep fit and healthy and to learn as well!
My daughter absolutely loves going to classes. The teaching is done in such a fun way that the children don’t even realise that they are learning.

It’s so important for children to be active, and dancing is the perfect way to do this. Highly recommended.
Our daughter started two weeks ago. She really enjoys it. Thorrington Dance Academy is the best!

Sam is an outstanding teacher, the classes are fun and brilliantly structured.

I love the smiles on their faces.
