    Comments:
    "My daughter started taking dancing classes at Marcia’s Dance Centre and Stage School when she was seven years old, and continued to study there until she left home to go to university at the age of eighteen. In my opinion, this particular school is excellent because it offers a wide range of disciplines, giving the students plenty of choice. I believe that it offers something for everyone. As my daughter was very keen to dance she swiftly took to a number of different types of dancing including; Ballet, Tap, Ballroom, Latin American, Modern and Jazz. She also got involved with any of the shows that the school produced. My daughter has benefited greatly from the time she spent at Marcia’s Dance Centre and Stage School. It has given her an excellent set of life skills that will stand her in good stead for whatever she has to face in the future. As her mother, I consider that the time, effort and money I spent taking her to classes has been a valuable and rewarding investment." (MM, Jan 09)
