I can't thank the Andrea Knowles Academy of Dancing enough for what they have given my 2 girls. From the first dance party Anna & Sophie did for us & the 1st dance lesson nearly 4 years ago my daughters have not looked back. From dancing on a London stage, exceeding in dance exams & competitions they have been encouraged & helped along the way by the brilliant & friendly teachers. We couldn't ask for more from a dance school, thank you.
My daughter started this school 4 years ago went to many different schools within the area but this was the best. very welcoming and friendly. My daughter has become a very confident girl she loves to dance and with her and support from the academy she has carried on loving what she does . My youngest daughter is now to start in September and I know she will love being apart of the dance family that my eldest daughter have come to love. The staff are very welcoming and any problems or advice you need they are always there.

Hi Andrea, just wanted to thank you and all of the team for the super opportunities you give our children. The get to take part in lessons with highly qualified teachers working through the grade exams, and they also have the opportunity to perform in bi-annual shows which with great choreography, music and costumes, is so much part of the joy of dance...
It is also the huge life lessons about dealing with success and failure that I'm so impressed with those children who participate in the competitions learn to work for, and when it comes enjoy their success, with congratulations and well done ringing in the ears from their friends of all ages.
They learn to associate hard work with results, but more importantly to my mind hey learnt to deal with the more frequent occasions when they don't win it is then that they are supported by their friends and peers who are all willing each other to do their best even when in direct competition with each other. When these children come off the floor sometimes disappointed or frustrated it is always into hugs and support generated by their friends and teachers. They grow and mature in this climate and they are all better for it! Anyway thank you again, and here's to more of the same in the coming year!
My daughter loves dancing at AK, the teachers are wonderful and really encourage all the dancers and make them feel special.

Andrea, Anna and Kim and all the teaching staff are so friendly and professional. My daughter loves attending the school and watching her progress into a talented dancer is very rewarding. The school teaches and encourages discipline, fun and friendship and sees the best in all pupils. Highly recommend after being at the school for 5 years now.
