I would not be half as confident or motivated as I am without the experience and knowledge I’ve gained from classes and friends – it has been truly invaluable

CAT Student 

Over four years a ‘family’ of patient, dedicated and professional teachers and support staff have changed our son from an energetic boy into a professional dancer. In addition to the requisite dancing skills they have showed him how to protect those skills, with guidance on health, fitness and training; they have rescued him from injuries and taught him to understand his limits. They have put him in the hands of first class guest choreographers, giving him permission to think creatively and transforming his confidence and they have encouraged him to push his boundaries and seize opportunities. They have given him a preview of the professional world he is entering
