“The best thing about Clifford Studios is the dedicated teachers. Hannah is learning new things with her friends and growing with the school. It’s a great local option.”
Katrina + Hannah – Ballet, Tap, Modern + Performance

“We chose Clifford Studios because it is fun + friendly as well as the variety of Tap, Modern + Ballet; I didn’t want just a ballet class. Ameera’s balance, co-ordination and dance technique have improved in the 4 years she has been at Clifford Studios.”
Fatema + Ameera – Ballet + Tap

“Maya joined when she was just 2 and is always excited to go to dancing. She loves rhythm and after class always tries out the moves she has learnt. She is getting discipline from the classes and her imagination has expanded since joining.”
Janet + Maya – HOP

“Josh loves to tap dance, especially the fact that he wears ‘special shoes’! We were really pleased to find a dance class that was not just ballet, which is ‘traditionally’ for girls. Josh always talks to me afterwards about which music he enjoyed most too.”
Imogen + Josh – HOP

Thank you, Jo, for providing such a great environment for the kids to learn in. Your wonderful smile and attitude encourage my child to keep going! Her posture, rhythm and confidence have improved as a result of dancing at Clifford Studios.”
Ana + Jophiel – Tap, Modern + Ballet

“Jo makes my son Jakub feel more comfortable with girls and more confident in general. We joined after seeing Clifford Studios perform at the Barnes Summer Fair in 2013 and hearing everyone else’s lovely opinions of the school. Jakub always says he had a good time after he’s finished class.”
Magda + Jakub – JUMP

“My daughter Izzy joined Clifford Studios 2 years ago when she was 6 and has loved it. Jo is very professional; always ensuring the girls warm up properly and work on the correct posture + control before the fun ‘show’ elements.”

“Just wanted to say how brilliant last night's show was! I was amazed at how many dances you managed to put together and the quality of every performance. The children looked as though they enjoyed it and they are a real credit to you both. As a former primary school teacher, I know how much work goes into performances and how challenging it is at times! You both have looked so calm throughout. Olive loved every minute of it and I am really looking forward to watching her improve and dance more under your guidance over the next few years!“

I was so proud to see the transformation, and the other week at the Barnes Fair I saw the stage where CSD performed last year - just incredible to see the growth/expertise and professionalism. I am beyond delighted with Amelie's progression at Clifford Studios, you know she adores it and that's down to you and Miss Lucy. I can't thank you all enough.“

“The show was truly wonderful. A credit to all involved. Thank you for inspiring the girls. For general confidence it's such a great thing to do. Plus I think the show helped the girls bond a bit more so Stella now feels they are friends rather than just other kids who dance at the same time.“
