We attended [her] third class today and it blew my heart wide open. She was a bit upset well a lot upset just before class. We managed to persuade her to at least watch. The support Miss Emily gave was amazing! I’m getting teary eyed again thinking about it. [She] can be super stubborn and to watch Miss Emily work her magic was incredible.

Most teachers would have made one or two attempts to coax her in then left her be and let her parents deal with it. Miss Emily kept finding ways to include her. Slowly but surely a smile, a giggle, then she was doing naughty and good toes while sitting on me. Then she asked to join. Even after she joined I could see how Miss Emily adapted how she taught to boost [her] enjoyment.

I had tears in my eyes the whole class. To watch someone else love my daughter so much was just so special. The lessons aren’t just therapy for the kids, it’s therapy for the parents too. I didn’t understand this before.

So please pass on my thanks that I could not articulate well enough after class. When you said Heart was one of your values I was very excited. And now I’m super grateful that it’s not just fancy words…you guys really are extraordinary.

This dance studio is such a wonderful place for my kids to have fun, learn new skills (not just dancing ones but life ones too), make friends and burn off extra energy. The teachers are super nice, patient and really encouraging. So glad we found a second home ❤️

My daughter, who was very shy, has blossomed at this place. We’ve done babyballet for almost a year and she has loved going to the classes. The teachers are passionate, fun and so good with the kids. Would highly recommend!

My daughters both love coming to their babyballet classes at The Renaissance School of Dance. Their teachers are so kind, patient and encouraging. The blue leotard/dress is super adorable too!

My daughters have been with the dance school since it’s creation.The school has a familar and friendly feel about it .I have enjoyed the service provided by Margureite and look forward to see what 2009 brings for the dance school.

My girls have gone from shy and clingy to confident and outgoing, all because of Marguerite’s dance classes. They get immense pleasure and are extremely proud of the achievements, as am I.

S. Rhodes

We would and do highly recommend The Renaissance School of Dance services to others. We love the fact kids have the opportunity to perform throughout the year at Hunters Plaza and being a part of the Santa Parade. Such a lot of time and effort on Marguerite’s part goes into these things which is appreciated.

M. MacShane

My daughter attended The Renaissance School of Dance for three years. During this time she grew in confidence and attained valuable dancing skills. All credit to Marguerite’s training especially in the last year with the performance team. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this school to any prospective students. Thank you for the many special memories.

L. Kerr

The service that was provided was very professional. updates, reminders & upcoming events were easily accessible, either by a phone call or text. My daughter loves dancing and being part of dance school that focuses on your child and having a teacher that loves what she is doing makes all the difference.

From the moment i messaged to find out infomation to the moment we walked in the doors to join the dance world we have had an amazing time. Brooklyn is excited to come back week after week and when holidays are on she asks when does dance start again. We are so happy to be part of the dance family and cant wait to see more and learn more. Great job margarette and ur team.

C. Sullivan

I just have to write this although when my daughter started her dance classes tonight i dont know what i was expecting but we both were made to feel so welcome, i didnt know how she would act or even if she would do her classes but she did and i just have to say thank you for not letting me just stand not knowing what to do, for helping with her shoes and for including me in conversation.

We stumbled upon The Renaissance School of Dance almost 3 years ago. So much to rave about; Marguerites infectious love of dance, the schools enthusiasm and encouragement, the family feel, the fabulous annual productions, the amazing teachers who love the students. Both of my daughters dance with RSD and we all love the company to pieces.

K. George

Our girls love being a part of the RSD family! Marguerite and her team really love what they do and it is infectious. The school has a wonderfully inclusive, family feel where everyone is made to feel welcome and every dancer encouraged to reach their full potential. A professional, fun and exciting place to find your dancing feet.

L. Frank

I went along to my daughter’s trial hip hop class last week, where she was immediately welcomed into a warm and inclusive environment. She had so much fun! Thomas the teacher was clear and friendly, kept the kids on task but made every single aspect of the lesson fun. We have enrolled for the term and I see Mia becoming a pretty permanent fixture on the dance floor there in the future.

Marguerite, the studio director has also been very friendly and openly communicative, answering any questions we have promptly. All in all, great facilities, great people, and very reasonably priced. I would recommend to anyone looking for a dance studio for their kids.

N. Makes

Life is better when you’re dancing, and both my kids really enjoy RSD. From a parents perspective, the personal touches and family feeling we get means my kids come away with their dancing challenges tackled and nurtured in a professional yet friendly environment.

T. Ormsby

When I first enrolled my eldest daughter at The Renaissance School of Dance, I really thought it would be a 6 month phase. We’ve just started our 6th year with RSD with both my girls taking classes. This place has become a huge part of our lives and I wouldn’t have it any other way. Awesome teachers that genuinely care and support their students to grow and achieve. All while having loads of fun!

T. Miller

A supportive and fun place for kids to grow and stretch themselves – physically and mentally! Lots of wonderful opportunities to shine offered by the friendly and professional team of teachers, and some amazing families to meet and become your “RSD family”

K. Cordell

Anna loved her first Butterfly Ballet class. Great to Have good structure and also some free creative dance time at the end. Thank you Marguerite for making it so much fun!

B. Diprose

My daughter has done 2 preschool ballet classes so far and absolutely loves it. Marguerite is amazing with the kids and makes it so much fun.

C. Du Plooy

Jasmine loves jazz. Great way to learn new skills and get exercise. Also good to make new friends.

C. Patten

Such a talented group. My two girls Alexa and Ella have not been doing this long, but it has improved their co-ordination dramatically. Awesome school. Latest show was amasing. So much colour and style. Loved it. I hope they release the show soon for everyone to see.

J. M Booth

You can usually find me dancing around this place…….I love it!
