'We have been using Alice and her dance company throughout the current school year and her knowledge, expertise and enthusiasm has been infectious. After starting with our junior pupils she has expanded her club to cover the whole school and numbers have shot up. Children talk about how much fun street dance is and enjoy seeing themselves progress under Alice's teaching. Our dancers have performed routines for parents at open days and will continue to increase their profile.
In addition to working with children, Alice has also been delivering continuing professional development training for our teaching staff. She delivered a very successful training event to show teachers from nursery to year 6 how they might use the principles of street dance to contribute to the dance aspects of the PE curriculum. I would recommend her to any other schools.'
