Amazing!

Lovely little dance school. My daughter has been attending for over half a year now and is excited and eager to go every Saturday. My daughter has made lots of friends and has an amazing relationship with Sharon and her daughter.

I would highly recommend 👌

Sharon is very friendly and welcoming and dedicated. My daughter joined in 2020 and absolutely loves going!

Her confidence has grown and  has made lots of friends. She is always keen to show us her dancing at home.

Sharon provides themes classes (Christmas, Halloween) which my daughter loves.

Sharon goes above and beyond for her pupils including online lessons during lockdown so the girls could continue to learn and dance, they also received certificates through the post!

I would highly recommend!

Amazing dance school

5
My daughter joined the school a bit shy and we could not have a better dance teacher to help her build confidence to thrive in just few weeks of joining. The lessons are amazing and give the children an opportunity to:
- learn to dance,
- learn how to follow instructions
- have fun
- make friends and so much more!
My younger one is desperate to join ballet is just waiting to be old enough and my oldest is talking about adding tap dance to her weekly ballet lessons. Also such a good value for money! Highly recommend!

Danced with Sharon for 15 years, only leaving to go to university, and can confirm that...

both she and her school are absolutely wonderful. Sharon always goes above and beyond, accommodating individual needs and making the dance school inclusive to girls and boys, children, teenagers and adults, of all skill levels.

No dancer is forced to take exams if they don’t feel ready, and the show is an incredible opportunity to gain experience performing, with backstage supervision by certified chaperones.

All classes are taught at Fant Hall, offering a safe and spacious space for all types of dance. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the hall was maintained following the government guidance to the letter, and when in-person classes were not possible Sharon provided online lessons on Zoom, making them as enjoyable as possible and providing an important continuity for her students throughout the crisis.

Sharon Kennard School of Dance is a friendly and kind space for young dancers to learn and thrive while having fun, and from the perspective of a student I highly recommend it.

Love Love Love this Dance School

Absolutely amazed by the dedication put in by Sharon. My daughters Joined about 6 weeks before lockdown last March, classes went onto zoom, Sharon was so good with the classes with themed weeks of fancy dress and certificates to be won too, she kept the children moving and learning with sometimes parents joining in as well. Now they are back in the studio and my daughters never want to come home they desperately want to stay in the studio now and want to "be like Sharon" their words!! Thank you Sharon for introducing my girls to the world of Dance, they love it!!
