COMMENTS FROM PAST STUDENTS, PARENTS & TEACHERS

 

"My daughter experienced her first summer school last year and she could not have been happier during her stay. She was taught by exceptional teachers in a warm and stimulating environment. One of the unique features of the Dunsford course is the balance between the challenges of the work during the dance sessions and the social activities in the breaks and evenings. The children had fun in the pool, played field games on the green, and of course enjoyed a party in the hall. The final showcase for friends and families was a celebration of joy, displaying the achievements of the very special days the students spent at Dunsford. " MELANIE DENNIG (PARENT)

Lovely Day! So much fun (very tiring) but just so many things are going on, you never get bored and there is always something new just around the corner in the next lesson ! The party was the best! Showing off all of our tricks !

Really Good day! One of the best! It was just so relaxed and not as busy and the other days! I just gave us a bit of a break !
In particular I enjoyed taking the photos up on the stage, and doing the pas de deux! Just great!
Friday
The performance was really good as we got to show our parents how much fun we had been having throughout the week! Also, we got to show how hard we had worked to learn all the dances and to perform them all with a smile on our faces!

Course Feedback
FANTASTIC ! AMAZING !
I am just speechless who knew we could do so much in 5 days ! Well done Layla, you did it again!
Overall, the course really put dancing into perspective for me, as it doesn't matter how flexible you are or how high you can get your leg( well it does matter, but you know what i mean) hehe , you just need to perform well and show that you are passionate for dancing! Basically HAVE FUN! LEANNE JACKMAN (STUDENT)
