what our families say...

I absolutely love Michaela poulton school of dance! My daughter started dancing with you as a very shy and a cautious 3year old and she has absolutely flourished. She loves going to her ballet lessons and she is now preparing to perform a solo routine in a festival! My daughter has been taught by several different teachers and always comes home with a smile. If you are in any doubt about joining, this is a great dance school and they really care about their dance family and all who are within it. Thank you Miss Kayla and your lovely team.

I Our daughter loves coming to ballet each week and always has fun, whilst also learning. She has dyspraxia but Kayla has always been really helpful and our daughter doesn’t feel out of place or different. So thank you to everyone at MPSD

Our daughter has attended Michaela Poulton School of Dance for a few years now and goes to musical theatre and ballet classes. She has really thrived and continuing to do so not just in her talent but also her confidence. This dance school is amazing with caring, nurturing, professional and fun teachers. They do not just provide a dance school but a safe and loving community for the children and their families. There has not been one negative regarding the school and the teachers they greet you and your child/ren with great big smiles and accept you for who you are. Whereas, other dance schools are not so accepting! Each child that comes out of class comes out with a beaming happy face. In our daughters words… “Miss Kayla is caring, kind, funny and the best”.

We can’t thank Michaela poulton school of dance and their teachers enough for accepting our daughter and putting every effort into her to support her with her beautiful talents and growing confidence.

You’re all amazing and we love you!
