My 11 year old daughter has only been at RSOPA since September and absolutely loves it. She said took part in the CELEBRATE show in December, and although she danced in only one group dance, she practised so much at home because she didn’t want to let down her dance teacher, her fellow dancers or Miss Amelia, and this to me shows just how much she loves and cares for RSOPA. Claire Carter, Parent

“Miss Amelia is a truly wonderful ballet teacher. She is extremely knowledgeable and highly trained which means she only provides the best training.   My daughter loves her ballet classes and they are my favourite to watch, so beautifully graceful. Having been attending ballet classes with RSOPA since she was 2 ballet is my daughter’s favourite lesson of the week.”

“I was so pleased when my daughter started Street Dance, I find it wonderful to watch and love the funky music and moves. My daughter has come on so much since starting street she loves the different style of dance. She bounces out of classes hot and sweaty but always with a massive smile on her face.”

”  Her noisy shoes have been creating some form of tap since she was 2 fortunately through tuition at RSOPA, the noises now sound like a wonderful tap. It’s  even inspired me to take tap up again myself.”

Rachel Hardy, Parent
