" The highlight of my daughter's week is coming to Melody Bear. She asks me every day if its Fridays yet. Stephanie and Amy are great teachers and make the lessons very fun. I now have to hide her ballet and tap shoes as she would wear them every day if she could. "

" I'd like to thank Steph and Amy, Dolcie absolutely loves the both of you and the class! Your class is the only time she is on her own without me or Ralph and I was worried but she really loves coming. Thank you again. "

" Our daughter Sophie has been attending Illusions Dance Academy since she was 5, she is now 8 years old and enjoys a variety of dance including Ballet, Tap, Modern and Street. We have seen her confidence grow with the help and encouragement from her teachers Steph and Amy, who have also helped her pass her latest examinations. As a family we always look forward to the annual show, which is always enjoyable for both students and parents alike. "

"Our daughter attends Melody Bear Ballet and loves it. She has really grown in confidence and loves to show us all what she has learnt. She is only 3 so it is largely about creative expression, moving to music and a little of the basics of ballet, but most of all fun. However, I'm impressed how quickly she has learnt to control her body and even gracefully execute some ballet moves already.  Steph and Amy are great. The classes are different each week with loads of props and make believe. They're not only good instructors but also great with the children. Our daughter was a little shy and hesitant at first but they manage to make the girls feel comfortable but also ensure they follow directions".

"Lovely class, my Belle loves being with her friends and I think the classes are very well thought out with making each week slightly different with different fun themes. "

" Nancy loves her Melody Bear Ballet and Tip Tap Toe lessons - she's been attending since she was just over 2 and a half and is now nearly 4. Not only are they lots of fun but they allow her to learn new dance moves and the highlight of last year was the group's performance at the annual show. The stickers, worksheets and awards are also a great idea. Stephanie and Amy have a lovely way of teaching and dealing with all the little ones and we can't wait for Nancy's little sister to join in the fun and get dancing! "
