“My daughter Serena has been dancing at Mandy Ellen for about 4 years now and absolutely loves it! Mandy and her teachers certainly know their stuff from jazz, lyrical,modern, tap,ballet,hip hop and many more styles! They encourage and nurture their students to perform at their best and as it is taught in friendly classes Serena has made loads of genuine friends and this has helped to build her confidence too. They compete in competitions in and out of the U.K and are always learning new routines so never a quiet moment! Keep it up Mandy, you and your teachers are unique!”
