I just wanted to let you know Georgina is lovely. She is kind and has a caring nature and this is reflected in the culture of the VBS . I feel my daughter has been supported during her time with the ballet school and the teachers have also been kind and gentle in their approach.

A big thank you for another wonderful year at VBS. We were all thrilled for Molly when she was awarded the scholarship, a secret desire she’d harboured for some time. Her only complaint was that her face was sore from smiling. She also said it was the best day of her life- perhaps an indication of just how she feels about the role of dance in her life! She has been well supported by teaching staff at VBS , and is fortunate to be in a very supportive group of girls who all wholeheartedly expressed their happiness for Molly.

Firstly congratulations on a wonderful year. The choreography, costumes and performances were outstanding. The senior dancers were the best I have ever seen in the 7 years that Stephanie has danced for your ballet school. Once again congratulations and keep up the great work.
