Testimonials

My kids had an absolutely wonderful time in class today. They are dying to come back!

-Bonnie Louden, Parent

It was very evident that the attitudes and educational perspective that informs your work is beautifully child-centered, and approaches what movement, body image and the spirit of performance can be, for maximizing the health and well-being of the young people you and your staff work with.

-Grandparent/Retired Teacher

The technique these dancers have is something to be proud of... great training. These dancers are so clean, and have such chemistry onstage, you can tell they love it.

-Justine Fraser, Cowichan Music Festival Adjudicator - Ballet

"Too often dance instruction focuses on sexualizing or trivializing children, and the framing of life. Your approach is refreshingly the opposite, and developmentally honours children. So, thank you for your supportive methods in engaging kids in the joy of movement and dance."

-Grandparent/Educator
