Read some of the testimonials that our present and past pupils and associates have been kind enough to write…

Wow. Just wow. ️

How you and your team pulled off such a fab show with so many routines and so many attituders is a mystery to me!

We all (myself, Jord, Grandparents & Goddaughter) LOVED the show! The routines & theme were thoughtful and fabulous, and I particularly loved the inspired choice of music. Clearly a huge amount of work went into it. WELL DONE. You and the team should feel incredibly proud. And not just of the show, of the confidence and love for dance that you give all of the kids. You strike the perfect balance in the performances and in the way, you teach them.

Emma is an amazing Dance Teacher: friendly, approachable, organised and passionate about her dance school! My two girls love being part of the ‘Attitude family’. They do not just learn to dance, they learn to express themselves and gain self-confidence, pride and a sense of achievement whilst making a wider circle of friends. I always know my girls are in safe hands with Emma and would whole-heartedly recommend ‘Attitude Dance’ to anyone who wants their children to be part of something amazing! Thank you, Emma, for all you do.

Both my girls attend Attitude dance school and thoroughly enjoy all the classes they attend. Emma is very professional and dedicated which is clear to see in the performances they produce such as the recent annual show which was absolutely fantastic from start to finish!

Nicola Thompson

Fantastic show inclusive of all ages and abilities. The children absolutely love coming to Drama with Olivia and will be signing up for street dance and ballet next term. Well done Emma. Very well organised and professional, but most of all the kids just love it.

My daughter has been going to various dance classes at @titude for several years and she loves going now as much she did on her first day. Emma manages to make the children have fun n feel relaxed whilst staying professional and getting the kids to improve. Would recommend her classes to everyone!!

Sally (Isla’s mum)

Thank you, Emma. I’ve never seen a smile so big on Francesca! Amazing performances, superb choreography, perfect timings, outstanding & super safe organisation. Thank you for making every child feel happy and confident to perform.

Thank you, Vicky Chambers

Fabulous dance classes! My daughter loves going to @titude and loves performing in the end of year shows which are always such a high standard. Her favorite lesson at the moment is Acro. She has learnt so much and is really building up both her physical strength and her confidence. Emma Date is a great teacher. She is kind and caring with the children, as well as being very professional, and her passion for dance shines through. The older girls always look after the younger one’s too and the dance school has a lovely community feel to it. I would highly recommend @titude!

My first ever formal introduction to dance was when I was 9 with Emma at Hillside Primary School. I had not had any dance training, was a complete beginner and was so scared to try it, but Emma nurtured me into the group and made it easy for me to settle in.

After the very first lesson I was hooked and returned every week. I progressed as a young dancer through effective, but fun technical exercises/choreography and over the years I was with Emma, as she continued to push and support me into becoming a better dancer, I grew a passion for dance. Not only had I found a new craft that I loved, and which kept me fit, but I had a new found confidence, without which there’s no way I could of got to where I am today! In a way you could say I owe everything to Emma and to me she is not only a teacher but a very dear friend. She makes you feel part of her crazy, fun dance family; creating a great place to learn and feel safe.

Shaquia Lee – Pupil, Phoenix Youth Dance Co, Sadlers Wells National Youth Dance Co

Ever since I was little I’ve always wanted to dance and become a professional dancer when I’m older, performing all over the world. Thanks to my teacher Emma I feel as if I’m in my way to achieving my dream. I’ve been dancing with Emma for over a decade now. With her I’ve had excellent training in different styles, as she has always encouraged me to expand on my skills in various dance disciplines including contemporary and cheer.

My biggest accomplishment with Emma has to be when she encouraged me to go out and audition for Phoenix youth dance academy, which I have now been a member of for 5 months. All of this wouldn’t have been possible if it wasn’t for Emma. She is one of and will forever be, one of the best coaches I have ever had. Everything I do in the future I owe to her. As I love being her student.
Without Emma and the training she’s provided me, I wouldn’t be a performer who is auditioning for dance colleges and dance courses at university.

Shaquia has now successfully auditioned for the Sadlers Wells National Youth Dance Co.

I started dancing with Emma when I was 14 at an after-school club. From there I went on to helping Emma in other sessions a couple of times a week.

I never wanted to go to university, I just enjoyed going to Emma’s sessions. She made them fun and enjoyable for all abilities. When I finally decided to go to Uni to study dance, Emma was really supportive. She always believed in me, even when I doubted myself.

Ten years on and I am now a fully qualified dance teacher. I couldn’t have done it without the help and support Emma gave me. She is a fantastic teacher. She has so much experience in a number of dance styles and her classes are always varied, enjoyable and fun.
