Kind words from our members

My two-year old daughter Amy loves attending Flourish Ballet on a Friday morning. On her first lesson she was a little nervous, but Sarah is just wonderful with all of the children, making them feel welcome and settled. Amy is just brimming with confidence now; she really looks forward to the class each week. We’re very happy to have found the Dance Academy, it is both professional and enjoyable and as a Mum I would encourage anyone who is thinking of introducing dance to their child to come along. Keep up the great work Sarah x

The Skinny Jeans Club……really supportive group with endless amounts of advise, tips, resources and like-minded women. One of the best nutrition & exercise groups I have been a member of with a flexible approach, looking at YOU as an individual rather than one approach fits all. Amazing group support with everything food & exercise sprinkled with fun, humour, confidence and much much more!!

Sarah is a fab and fun teacher for both adults and kids.
I go to zumba on Monday night which builds up a sweat but doesn’t leave you on your knees for the rest of the week .
Both my children go to dance lessons with Sarah and come out with big smiles on there faces and can’t wait to go again .
