"My daughter has been dancing with BDA for 8 years, since the age of 5. It's an incredibly nurturing dance school with an emphasis on enjoyment, while providing first class ballet tuition with live pianist accompaniment. Mrs Brewer's passion for dance radiates through the school, it's a wonderful community to be part of."
"BDA is an amazing school that gets the balance between professional and fun just right.
It makes sure everyone can learn the steps easily and makes sure every student is treated with equity. It's an amazing environment and I wouldn't rather be anywhere else."
"BDA is a fantastic ballet school which my daughter absolutely loves. She has gained so much confidence, self-belief and perseverance and a love for dance and music through her classes over the last 10 years. The live piano lessons add to the musicality and fun, and the teachers pass on their love of dance to the children which shines through. Simply put, we are delighted with BDA and could not have wished for a better ballet school."
"My daughter is deaf and learning disabled as well as having spinal issues. BDA not only accommodates for my daughter's needs - but actively includes her in the classes. Her needs are met and she achieves things, using the class award system, that I could not have imagined. BDA cares.
I could not ask for more."
"We joined Brewer Dance Academy after moving to the area looking to continue RAD. We could not be happier with the choice we made. The girls have discussed with me in what an excellent teacher Mrs Brewer is. They particularly like the live music with the piano. There has always been excellent communication with the academy. The girls also mentioned how lovely the students they dance with are."
"Both of my daughters have been part of Brewer Dance Academy for over 4 years, taught by a range of excellent teachers including Mrs Brewer. It is a very inclusive environment which encourages the children to fully express themselves and enjoy each lesson. The additional online material and exam preparation is outstanding."
"Mrs. Brewer has been teaching my daughters ballet for almost 10 years. I love the traditional ballet format that Mrs. Brewer adopts, how she interacts with the children and that she has a live pianist during each class. The girls always look forward to her classes. "
"My daughters have both attended Brewer Dance Academy from the age of 3. They love it, and it is one of the few activities that they have both stuck at for years. This is due, in part, to the outstanding teaching they receive. The classes are huge amounts of fun; I don't think I'll ever forget the looks of joy on my daughters' faces during their trial lessons. The lessons are accompanied by a live pianist, which is such a wonderful thing for children to experience. Mrs Brewer is an amazing teacher, as are all the others who work with her. Her years of experience shine through, making the Brewer Dance Academy one of the best."
"My daughter loves dance and without it lockdown would have been so much harder for her to deal with. So many of the children are working towards their next exams and will now still be able to take them and progress to their next grade which is just fantastic!"
"Ballet coming back during lockdown was a lifesaver. A small glimpse of some “normal” in an upside down world. Mrs Brewer has been wonderful in keeping us Covid safe but also making sure the girls had fun. One of my children has special needs so the chaos of the last year has been doubly complicated for us; ballet has kept her on “routine”. Passing exams is amazing, but that’s just icing on the cake. What's realy amazing is the care and effort that BDA put in to bringing ballet to us in the most difficult circumstances."
"As a working parent, online ballet lessons have been extremely welcome, especially when homeschooling started up again. Ballet has been one of the few forms of exercise that my daughter could continue in lockdown, and it has really helped break up the long winter days when she has been attending lessons online sitting down all day."
"We are so grateful to Mrs Brewer and her team for enabling our youngsters to dance their way through lockdown. My daughter's lessons are the highlight of her week, and to be able to log-in to see familiar, cheery faces, dancing in unison, to the beautiful music of a live pianist, has helped keep her spirits up when so much of normal life has been paused."
