  • Thank you so much ladies for doing all you do! You are so kind and patient and every week our little lady finishes your class with the biggest smile on her face.
  • Just wanted to say a massive thank you and let you know how much we appreciate you. Megan loves Harlequins so much and has been telling me this morning all of the positives that come with being part of your family. It’s not just the friends she’s made or the confidence she has (her words not mine) but most importantly - dancing just makes her happy. As a Mum - knowing she’s happy and doing something she loves is the best thing ever. Your encouragement and kindness as well as your dedication to ensure she improves is fab
