WHAT PEOPLE SAY
My 5 year old daughter loves her weekly ballet class. TEAM has got it right, a perfect balance of a professional yet friendly and welcoming dance school. The effort put into the yearly show which all the children can take part in and the preparation for exams is exceptional. Thanks Miss Lucy and Team.
My daughter has recently started Musical Theatre classes at TEAM where she received a warm welcome and a high quality, fun and engaging training in acting, singing and dancing. She looks forward to going there every Saturday and the teachers are very friendly and professional.
My three daughters attend dance classes with TEAM. They are all very different personalities and skill sets but they have all been made to feel welcome. My eldest has been going for over 7 years and has loved the exams and competition side of the dance school. My younger two have a lot of fun. Between them they do classes in ballet, tap and modern. They have also really loved the musical theatre workshops in the summer which have included Trolls, Hairspray, Grease and this year Mary Poppins!
TEAM is a phenomenal place for children to grow, develop and have fun. My 2 daughters absolutely love coming hence why we attend 3 times per week! Keep up the great work Ms Lucy!!!
