    "Both my daughter (11) and son (9) have loved Slam Dancing Studio's summer casal for the last two years.  The three weeks fly past with the kids preparing for the final show in a proper theatre.  It's a wonderful experience and an incredible feat to accomplish in such a short time.  My daughter was keen to continue with classes throughout the year, and is really enjoying the modern jazz classes with Susie.  The new studios are lovely and I've been impressed with all the teachers we've come across who are profesional and friendly."

George's availability and concern has been profoundly appreciated.” (Mario & Tara, Nov 2015)
