Tyler been going to The Performance Academy for 5 years and in that time I have seen him grow from a young lad to a strong dancer and lovely young man. He has always been given the right help and support to achieve his dreams as Laura and her teachers care about the children they teach. They have helped Tyler grow in confidence and even helped get him ready for his college audition , where he successfully gained a place. Thank You so much for everything you’ve done, it truly is wonderfull to see the new show and watch him dance. Lisa Rathbone

Our daughter has been coming since the age of three. From the moment she became a "Funky Monkey" it was all she talked about and all she wanted to do. I put this down to Miss Laura's friendly, calm and fun teaching methods. Dancing is such an amazing thing to do, and to be a part of THIS school is even more amazing. The Performance Academy is a safe place for children to be themselves, progress in confidence along with learn new skills and of course the art of dance. Our daughter cannot wait to get home from school on a dancing night; she absolutely loves all her classes. The Performance Academy has become part of my family’s life, it’s a special place that will always be at the heart of my daughters dance life. The Performance Academy offers the children such wonderful opportunities and to be able to perform on the stage at the Buxton Opera House in the shows is just fantastic.Natalie Goodwin
