FROM CURRENT PARENTS
"...feels like a family..."
"The South West School of Dance feels like a family. Each student is welcomed into a fun and exciting environment.
Miss Jones leads a team of friendly and dedicated teachers. They encourage and nurture each student as an individual.
Since my daughter started at the school a few years ago her confidence has grown immensely, and this has carried through into her every day life."
"...excellent teachers, fantastic discipline..."
"Great choice of classes, excellent teachers with fantastic discipline and values. Both my children attend lessons and cannot get enough. They would go every day if they could. I am so pleased my children are part of The Best Dance School in the area."
"...friendly, fun and supportive..."
"A wonderful dance school. High quality teaching enabling the dancers to progress to a high level if they wish to. Very friendly, fun and supportive meaning that the pupils love attending their classes. There are opportunities to be involved with performances and workshops which have helped develop my children's confidence. My 3 girls have attended the school from age 4 - 18 and have loved every minute spent there."
"My daughter has had so many different opportunities and experiences during her time at The South West School of Dance, she loves all classes and each teacher brings something different to her development. I have seen her grow and be stretched, achieving some fantastic results. But most of all she just loves being there! Would highly recommend the school"
"...students are encouraged to help each other..."
"My daughter has been with The South West School of Dance now for 9 years. Miss Jones and her team are so professional, dedicated and encouraging to students, lifting their confidence in a quiet subtle way. All the shows I have seen and been involved in has every member of the dance school taking part, and having been back stage with the students helping out, they absolutely love the experience, the discipline and the fun of performing. At class and show times the students are encouraged to help each other and work as a team. My daughter is a senior student now and I have seen her blossom in her abilities and in her confidence. I would highly recommend Miss Jones and her team at The South West School of Dance."
"...a great environment to learn in..."
"My daughter loves her classes here - a great environment to learn in, excellent teachers who clearly know the individual students very well."
"...options of classes is vast..."
"5* excellent excellent school. Couldn't recommend it more highly. The options of classes are vast, the standard of teaching exceptional from pre-primary through to vocational, and it is a lovely friendly school. The performance opportunities are also second to none, from festivals and galas to amazing dance shows and musicals. My daughter absolutely loves it."
"The South West School of Dance is a brilliant dance school with knowledgeable, dedicated staff who encourage every pupil to reach their potential. The performance opportunities available are fantastic, with their productions showcasing the huge range of talent and hard work of staff and pupils. The teachers have nurtured my children and brought out their unique talents in fun, engaging ways. My children absolutely love being part of this dance school and I am extremely grateful to all the teachers for all they have done for them."
"...an amazing dance school..."
"My son has been with The South West School of Dance for 8 years. My son has been continually encouraged to progress and flourish. Miss Jones and her dedicated team have given my son great opportunities throughout his time with fantastic coaching and chances to take exams and perform on stage. This is an amazing dance school."
"Highly professional, this is by far the best dance school locally (and we have experienced a few). My girls have been inspired with a passion for dance and are given the highest quality training whilst still managing to have great fun in lessons. The dance shows are absolutely jaw-dropping, the quality of some of the dancing on a par with the largest London dance schools."
"...teachers are talented and inspiring..."
"My daughters love attending The SWSOD. The teachers are talented and inspiring, encouraging the pupils to achieve high standards. You can really see your child's dancing improve year after year and my daughters have made great friends in all their classes. The biennial show is not to be missed, the teachers' amazing choreography and attention to detail ensure that every performance is spectacular. Highly recommended."
"...every performance is spectacular..."
"The SWSOD accommodates all types of dancers from those who wish to become professionals to those who dance for pleasure. The teachers are all kind, understanding and supportive to everyone, classes are enjoyable but the attention to detail in technique and performance is second to none.
Both my girls have loved learning to dance here and I can only thank the school for supporting Jess in going on to professional training."
"...the dancers make friends for life..."
"An exceptional Dance School. I really can't praise the amazing teachers enough for inspiring and encouraging my daughter in all aspects of dance and performance. She has loved every minute of her time with SWSOD from progressing through the optional graded exams to performing in the fantastic dance shows, musical productions, galas and competing in festivals. A very friendly and caring school where the dancers have such a laugh and make friends for life."
"...hard work ethic..."
"All the teaching is to a very high standard. The hard work ethic is demonstrated by exam successes and a brilliant biennial show. It is evident how much the pupils enjoy dancing!"
"...excellent, excellent school. Couldn't recommend it more highly..."
