“Dance dance dance!!”

My daughter has been attending Danceworks since she was 5 – she turns 11 in September!! She started off with street dance, tap and cheerleading on a tues eve at the Courtney centre. When the studio opened it also opened up a whole new world of dancing for her and sadly my pocket!! She now does street, tap, modern, festival, show dance, Latin and ballroom. She is progressing really well through her medal tests achieving high grades for all thanks to the input from her teachers. She has also entered many competitions solo, duet and group and again achieving great results!! She recently hurt her foot so could not dance for a couple weeks and was so upset she couldn’t dance and see her friends. I have also made some amazing “dance mom” friends and we are looking forward to a dance weekend in November with high hopes of bringing home some bling!! Pauline, Rob, Alex and Megan are great teachers and lovely people. I couldn’t wish for more for daughter who has recently told me she now wants to be a dance teacher. Thanks guys keep up the good work xx

“Inspiring, welcoming and very professional”

My daughter loves dancing of any description and can do all genres here at Danceworks Devon. Latin, ballroom, show dances, tap, street,modern and theatre. The teachers are amazing and you are able to watch the children progress very quickly in a lovely studio whilst having a coffee and chatting in a relaxed seating area. The owners Pauline and Rob are very passionate about getting it right, from the lighting, ambiance and studios to the standard of tuition, costumes and music. constantly assessing and changing to keep things fresh. It’s a pleasure to see the smiling faces of the children as their confidence builds and they achieve their goals. I would certainly recommend this dance school and we have been made very welcome by Pauline and Rob and also all the other dance parents. Keep up the good work, we are loving it

“THE best place to go for all your dance requirements.”

Have been taking my daughter to Danceworks for last couple of years and she has turned into an amazing dancer winning medals at local festivals thanks to her amazing teachers. The classes are fun and encourage your child to progress if that is what they want and if not to simply enjoy. They have only recently started entering street dance competitions and have already started progressing. It is very much a team effort and I know I speak on behalf of many when I say there is nowhere better. Watch out for our crew in the future.

“Wedding Surprise”

My daughter wanted to do something a little different for the first dance at their wedding on 27 June so we bought them a wedding dance package from Danceworks – great decision!
My daughter chose the music and Pauline put together a great routine for them (neither had really danced before). Three lessons and a DVD for home practice really produced results.
Daughter and now son in-law wowed the guests with a real dance routine they obviously enjoyed. After popular demand, they danced again later that evening to great applause. Definitely one of the highlights of a fantastic day – thanks again Danceworks!

“Shall we dance? Oh Yes.”

This is a wonderful venue; friendly and welcoming, with great facilities including a nice bar. Very professionally run and the most fantastic, inspiring tuition. We have been learning to dance (ballroom & latin) with Rob & Pauline since 2011 and we absolutely love going to Danceworks. Our favourites are foxtrot and argentine tango. Whether it’s a group lesson, private lessons, a relaxed social evening or a tea dance, Danceworks delivers. If you are looking to learn a new skill, have fun and improve your relationship(!), give Danceworks a try. You won’t regret it.
