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.

I wanted to write this email to thank you and the ballet school for putting on such a fantastic concert last night. You must be so proud of all the students and proud yourselves for the wonderful concert. We enjoyed the concert and my three girls were so excited and happy with the performance too. Thanking you again & congrats to the ballet school for the wonderful achievement.

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.
