She looks forward to her Lessons and always walks out/ dances out with a beaming smile .
Libby's enthusiastic, cheerful determined attitude is very inspiring to all of us. We thoroughly recommend Dragonflies Dance school.'

I love Dragonflies Dance because there is a wide range of different styles to choose from and all the teachers are amazing. They are very good at making sure that everyone is happy and enjoying themselves and learning new steps. I especially love the exams because we get our hair styled and at the end we get cake!

I have been attending Miss Libby's Adult ballet and DDMix classes for a year. I am 70 and it was nearly 50 years since I last did a dance class! It is great to have the opportunity to feel comfortable and confident to dance again, despite the limitations that come with age . I enjoy the physical and mental challenge in good company where we just work within our own abilities, having so much more fun than going to the gym. Thanks Libby.
Marilyn - DDMIX and Adult Ballet Student.
We are so delighted that our girls dance at Dragonflies. The teaching is of an exceptional standard and there are so many opportunities to take exams, participate in festivals and community events. Our girls equally love the formal discipline of ballet as well as cartwheeling through the air in Acrobatic Dance! Most importantly, they have made some fantastic friendships through dance and have so much fun.
Parents of girls aged 9 and 13.
My daughters have danced at the school since the ages of 3 and 4 respectively. They've made many friends from different schools and across the age groups which has helped with the transition from primary to secondary school. Working towards exams and taking part in competitions and bi-annual shows has helped them develop confidence as well as many social and team working skills which have, and will continue to benefit them as they grow older. Miss Libby is a great teacher and most importantly, the girls really enjoy all their dance activities in what is a friendly and supportive "family" environment.

Our teacher, Miss Libby, is very enthusiastic when teaching, and explains the technique in a way that is understandable for me to learn. Also she provides confidence, re-assurance and is very kind. Come and join Dragonflies Dance School!'

'I really like coming to Dragonflies Dance because I have been able to vastly improve my dance ability whilst enjoying myself. I didn't start ballet too long ago, however, I have been able to progrress really far in this time with alot of support from my classmates and Miss Libby.'
Jess - age 15.
Of all the activities and clubs my daughter participates in, I think I enjoy her dance the most. I love the biannual show - it really is superbly put together with fantastic choreography from Miss Libby and an amazing variety of dance styles. It is incredible to see what talent can be brought to the fore by dedicated high quality teaching. I really look forward to it.
Lessons are always very focused and the children are expected to concentrate and work hard which is a great discipline in itself and they always seem to excel when it comes to exams. Miss Libby has high aspirations for them. I enjoy watching the whole class make progress and am impressed by the detailed attention each child gets to help them correct mistakes or improve further.

'I like Tap because my shoes make a lot of noise and I like that! It is very fun working towards exams because I am proud of myself when I have performed in front of the examiner.
I like ballet because it is graceful and beautiful, also I like the music. I think it is a great activity to do!'

“I’ve been attending the adult ballet classes for two years. I’m in my mid sixties and had never done ballet before: now I’m hooked ! Within a few months I was poured into Lycra to dance in the biennial show ! I really love the classes. Libby is an inspiring teacher. We have a giggle but we also learn a lot. My posture and balance have improved, and I’ve made new friends.”

Everyone is very friendly - the children and the grown-ups. I like doing the shows best because it's fun to act out a story in dance.
