All teachers are excellent and very friendly, which reflects in the extremely professional productions they put on. The shows are simply stunning and a great chance for relatives to see how much their children thrive in dance and confidence. They also provide entertainment at several displays and competitions where the children are given chance to shine and the chance to win medals and trophies.
The girls have achieved so much by attending AT dance, with high exam passes and performing they are very happy girls and I am one proud mum”
Louise Crawford“ For the past 10 years I have been attending Appleton Thorn (AT) School of Dance, performing in their shows and gaining many dancing qualifications.Having moved from a dance school in Wales at the age of 7, I knew AT School of Dance was the place for me due to their strong reputation, welcoming approach and breadth of teaching.
The teachers at AT dance have always believed in me, pushing me in every class so I performed to the best of my ability. Over the years they have given me amazing performance opportunities including: group and solo performances in various competitions; annual shows and events including the ‘The Broadway Experience’. Each and every performance challenged me and required a relentless attention to detail and a need to remain fit and healthy. I will remember and treasure those moments as they have helped shaped me into the performer I am today”

“AT School of Dance has been fantastic for our two girls now aged 5 and 6. They’ve been dancing from age 4 and both really look forward to going each week. The care and attention to detail of Karen and her team is lovely to watch and the kids have fun whilst also growing in confidence and ability. All of the teachers are really kind but there’s no messing around and the kids learn loads. The annual performances are really professional and as the kids get older they get great support for exams and competitions. If you’re looking for a friendly, caring, professional dance school, look no further”
“My Son and Daughter have been attending AT dance since the age of 3. Karen has made it such a friendly environment which helps all the children to learn whilst having fun. She is firm, but has a great understanding of children, and you can see such wonderful progress in the confidence of the smallest of students. The children are encouraged and I feel extremely confident, even when left at such a young age, that they will have a great time and be well looked after by all the staff. Thank you”
“My daughter first attended Appleton Thorn School of Dance at the age of 4 years. 14 years later she is still there and now considering a career in dance.Why are we happy to send her to this dance school?She has learnt to dance to a very high standard. She has danced with the English Youth Ballet on 3 occasions. Each year she has achieved high marks in her external dance exams.
But it’s more than just a dance school. Mrs Speers and her staff do so much for the development of the child. They teach the pupils to be disciplined, work hard and gain self-confidence. They are encouraged to achieve high standards.
Furthermore Mrs Speers and her staff have a wealth of knowledge to offer should your child be considering a career in dance.
This is why I would recommend this school”
