Testimonials

Louise M (another happy minis mummy)

“My daughter who is normally very shy and not wanting to participate has loved every minute of Kinda ballet with Miss Somer and Miss Niina. Dressing up in her favourite tutu and learning how to plié and all while learning a dance to her favourite movie Mary Poppins. She wakes up every morning asking if she has ballet on today which is a true testament to how much she is enjoying the class. Thanks to the teachers on encouraging her to have so much fun.”
