What our students say

"I attended Brooks Dance Academy all my life up to the age of 18. I would go there three times a week and it's where I met some of my closest friends and had some of my best childhood memories. Jackie was one of the main people who inspired me to go into performing arts as a career, she is passionate, encouraging and honest. I came out of the dance school with a high level of dance ability which really helped forward my career enabling me to be offered a place at one of the best Musical theatre schools in the U.K. and also one of the best music conservatoires. I couldn't recommend Brooks Dance Academy highly enough."
