NEWS & TESTIMONIALS
‘I really recommend Bluebirds Ballet School for adults, as well as children. The quality of teaching is excellent and their Silver Swans programme for the over 50s is very inspiring. They demonstrate that you can dance and improve your fitness levels at any age.’ (Joanna N– Silver Swans student – January 2021)
‘My children have attended the school for years. They consistently love the classes and their teachers. Bluebirds provides a fantastic approach to ballet training – children are well prepared for formal exams while cultivating a love enjoyment of dance’ (Lara L – parent of students – January 2021)
‘What a glorious experience. I have been taking Silver Swan classes with Emma at Bluebirds Ballet School for about 18 months and I absolutely love it. Coming to ballet classes at my age was a little challenging but it has been so much fun. Emma is a joyous teacher, and the classes are carefully arranged to consider any individual limitations while being creative, life affirming, and enriching. I would recommend Bluebirds Silver Swan classes to everyone and anyone.’ (Kitty – Silver Swan – January 2021)
‘A fun way to keep fit for the over 50’s. Our class at Bluebirds Ballet School is such a lovely and encouraging environment. Emma, our teacher, is unfailingly encouraging to students of all ages and abilities. No previous ballet knowledge is necessary, and I use the class as my physio for an inherited connective tissue disorder. I learned ballet as a very little girl and again in my early 30’s and this has made returning to this lovely art from a joy as it has re-awakened my love of music and movement.
Attending ballet either on Zoom or in person on a weekly basis is fun! It helps so much with taking away your fear of falling or moving because our proprioception and core strength…
Come and join in the fun with us!’ (Penelope P – Silver Swan – January 2021)
“I just wanted to reiterate how much we enjoyed the Christmas show. It was clearly visible how much thought and effort went into the choreographies and costumes. It is no easy task coordinating so many children - or just handling the logistics of such an event. We hope there will be another show in 2020 - and we will soon sign up our son (16 months) for ballet.
Thank you again for creating this wonderful memory.”

“A huge thank you to YOU and all your hard work. The show was truly beautiful and the girls amazing. What a production! Thea was so happy, giving it more than 1000/10 to her day J She kept on dancing back home and all the way to bed…I hope you will be able to relax now. You should be proud of yourselves.”

“Dear Nicole and Emma
What a privilege to have been able to help today in a very tiny way at such a huge, brilliant, happy and uplifting performance! The organisation and dedication to achieve it was clearly massive. Congratulations to you all at Bluebirds and to all the wonderful little dancers who gave us such pleasure. I wouldn’t have missed it for the world.
I bet you are all exhausted so here’s wishing you some time to relax and to reflect that it was all so worth it.
Early greetings for a happy Christmas and new year. Looking forward to next term ....
Thanks so much.”
