Bampton St, Minehead TA24 5NH, UK – 07727 662203

My daughter, Ruby, has been dancing with Laura since she was 2 years old. 7 years on and she still absolutely loves it. Laura is a fantastic teacher, Ruby says she is very kind and she loves her very much. Ruby has taken several exams & taken part in several shows at The Regal Theatre. This also enabled her to be part of the Dance Chorus in last year's Pantomime. I have known Laura for many years, we used to dance together and now she teaches me too. Our adult dance classes are such fun, we laugh lots but learn more!� The Spotlight Dance Studio is very welcoming, has a wonderful atmosphere and I would highly recommend it to children and adults alike xxx
