My mother always said that I didn't have the build for ballet, well that is true, but this wonderful teacher has gently encouraged me and never once made me feel inadequate because I struggled with even basic steps.
I have better posture, more flexibility and lovely new friends, and now she is opening her very own ballet school for all ages and abilities in the most amazing location, come and have a go!

I so look forward to Diane’s ballet classes, not just because I have found a form of exercise that I love which has improved my strength, flexibly, balance & muscle tone but because of the relaxed atmosphere & the great humour of my lovely ballet buddies, which is the best stress relief of all!
Diane teaches fantastic ballet technique and encourages us all to do each exercise to the best of our ability. Her classes are not intimidating nor competitive and you finish them feeling well exercised, motivated and with a big smile on your face!
Emma, adult ballet student
Diane has been my daughter's much beloved ballet teacher for the past four years. Her lessons are of the highest calibre and her passion for ballet shines through in every class.
She is a talented and dedicated teacher who truly takes the time to get to know her students as individuals and I have seen all the girls develop wonderfully under her guidance.
My daughter says "Miss Diane is an excellent teacher because she is patient and kind when we are learning new things but she still always makes us work hard and encourages us to do the best we can. Her classes are lots of fun and she has lovely creative ideas for dances".
