Some comments from previous Wells students and their teachers / parents....
Livs and I had the most wonderful week at Dar Danse and we cannot thank you enough for making it possible. Over the 5 days I so much enjoyed watching her blossom and re-engage with her love of dance. As parents of a child at vocational school we don't get many opportunities to share this with them.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart to you and all those at Dar Danse who made this part of our summer so special. We will, fingers crossed, be back !
To create and produce such an important summer school I know takes so much energy, time etc. but you have created for the UK a rather unique summer school. It is brilliant, and plays a significant role in the training of our future dancers.
It was an absolutely phenomenal experience to learn and dance the grand pas de deux from Sleeping Beauty with Jonny and Gary; something I’ve only ever dreamt of doing. Both of them were so complimentary and encouraging…
…I adored learning the first entrance of the Swans with Vanessa – I’ve always wanted to learn how to “be” a Swan, and Vanessa explained in great detail how the simple use of the eyes and head conveyed the necessary feelings to the audience….
…Finally I would like to thank you Francesca, for your wonderful enthusiasm and encouragement. Your enjoyment is infectious and I can’t help but perform in your classes and have fun – I love them! Thank you for giving me so much pleasure!
With love and best wishes,
I just wanted to say a huge thank you for such an amazing time.
My daughter is glowing with health and happiness after her week with you all and can't stop talking about everything. She really feels that she's learnt a huge amount and has progressed and she's also made some lovely new friends.
We had quite a year last year health wise for her and it's so wonderful to see her well and loving her ballet. I feel she's really set up for a year of auditioning and everything having been with you all.
Thank you, thank you, thank you for providing an incredible week on many levels for her.
You provide us with such incredible opportunities and experiences, it always is so successful and this year it was brilliant. It was so exciting being at Sadler’s Wells and being taught by such amazing teachers. I felt so privileged to be asked to do so many wonderful dances for the performance, and it was so exciting to do it in front of everyone (and oh my goodness Monica Mason!!!). You and your Mum work so hard and it is truly amazing how on top of your extremely busy life you manage to organise and achieve such an exciting, challenging and exhilarating summer school. I couldn’t imagine my summers without The Wells and I loved every minute of it.
Lots of love,
I just wanted to send you an email to thank you for such a wonderful summer school. My daughter had such an amazing time and really misses you all.
She really learnt a lot and it has fired her on her way to dance even more.
As a parent I can't thank you enough for your care and kindness.
Once again a big thank you
