Hi everyone,
My DD has expressed interest in doing ballet. She is 5 so I know a lot start younger. She does have some complex difficulties, so needs an patient and understanding teacher. Any recs in Bmth area at all. I've unfortunately heard a few bad things about a couple of local dance schools, no names mentioned!!

Also, I worry about shows as not sure she would be able to take part and also heard how dance can become v expensive!!

Hi there - My girls have attended this school in Winton Bournemouth since they were 3 (now 10, on Tuesday - & 14yrs) and they LOVE every second of it. Miss Natalie is a lovely lovely person, an inspiration and an AMAZING kind and warm teacher. The school won National Dance school of the year Gold award in her category in July, - website being updated - so look at some vidoes on the facebook page -
Hope to see you there!

My great niece goes here:

She has Downs Syndrome and is three years old and is doing amazingly well. The teachers and other students are brilliant.

I believe Studio One in Ferndown is very inclusive of all children, I have heard very good things about it from friends. Would love to know which schools you have been told to avoid though, please please PM me!!!
