"Emily has been with Seaforth Dance Co. for almost two years. She started as a shy and reserved girl and over time we have seen her confidence and independence develop. We love hearing how she volunteers to take the lead in class and I love it when she corrects her father's pirouette. When Emily dances freely in public we get many compliments about her dancing and positioning, which can only be attributed to Seaforth Dance Co. developing her passion for dance. We love how the school allows the flexibility to use make-up classes for different genres and this has only encouraged Emily to want to dance more. The staff are beautiful souls who never fail to make us feel welcomed. Thank you!" - Marylene
"This is the most warm and nurturing ballet school I have ever come across! The staff are simply wonderful and go out of their way to make ballet an enjoyable experience for the children (and for the parents). Ballet class is the highlight of my daughter's week. Thank you Miss Gina for all you do to encourage a love of dance in my girl." - Allison
