'The New Forest Academy of Dance is a vibrant, happy and creative environment, that nurtures and inspires young dancers of all abilities through a variety of syllabus classes, "free" classes, workshops and more recently a real " showstopper" of a stage production, Alice in Wonderland!

Miss Kayleigh and her team are hardworking, caring and enthusiastic; encouraging and inspiring all their pupils to aspire to work hard and achieve their best!'   

               -   Parent of New Forest Academy of Dance pupil (11yrs)

'The New Forest Academy of Dance has been a wonderful experience for my daughter. She has loved every minute and her confidence has soared. The teachers enthuse their pupils with a love of dance and the students are always challenged and encouraged to have confidence in themselves and to be proud of what they have achieved. The students are well supported during their exams and the exam process has been a positive & valuable experience. This year’s school production of Alice in Wonderland was outstanding & both a memorable and rewarding experience for all involved. The themed holiday workshops are fantastic –  my daughter always has great fun attending these days, learning new dances & exploring new dance styles with friends. Everybody at the New Forest Academy of Dance is always cheerful and smiling, and as a parent I feel confident in leaving my child knowing she will be in a safe & happy environment. I would recommend The New Forest Academy of Dance to anyone looking to join a dance school.
