My daughter has been attending dance classes with Southborough School of Dance since she was three years old and she’s now fifteen! She has taken both ballet and modern/tap classes in this time and has loved all of them. Tamara is a very experienced, knowledgeable and caring teacher, always encouraging my daughter to be the best dancer she can be. Her annual dance shows are legendary within the school community and beyond and the children love the opportunity to dance on stage!

We’ve found the school to be a very friendly place, welcoming to all abilities, whether just a hobby or something more serious. My daughter wants to train to be a professional dancer and the quality of Tamara’s teaching and her high standards are helping her to achieve this. Overall, I always recommend Southborough School of Dance to any parent looking for a dance school.

Southborough School of Dance is a wonderfully friendly and inclusive dance school where we have always felt so welcome. My daughter has been a student at the Southborough School of Ballet since the age of 3 and Tamara has always supported and encouraged her, allowing her to develop her skills and grow in confidence. We have always been impressed with the high standard of teaching. We feel that within the studio the teacher always provides personalised coaching to each of the students, enabling them to reach their full potential. Because of this caring and attentive approach, the students enjoy great successes at dance Festivals and receive high marks in their graded exams. The school performance annual show and summer dance weeks are an exciting opportunity for the dancer to showcase their work and are always colourful spectacles, bringing together all students from across all the years. Overall, we highly recommend this dance school for fun, nurturing and professional tuition.

‘Since my time as a student with SSD ballet has always been an important part of my life. The opportunities and experiences I was given from performances, competitions and general class have helped shape the dancer I am today and I will be forever grateful.’

‘There is a strong sense of community and comradery across all age groups, especially during group dances, and we are all thrilled to support each other whole heartedly in all endeavours, creative or academic. We really are like one big happy family. We even joke about Tamara being our ballet mum! I don’t think I can praise Tamara enough. Her dedication and selflessness is inspirational, coupled with her sheer knowledge, talent and joy which she brings to every lesson, something I hope to bring with me in my journey into adulthood.’

‘Does your child enjoy dancing? If yes, then I would highly recommend the Southborough School of Dance!
Their highly professional style of teaching is friendly, inclusive and great fun!! All children are nurtured and encouraged to be creative, learn how to express themselves through dance in a disciplined environment. The teachers’ individual approach allows every pupil to fulfil her or his potential not only as an individual dancer but also as a valuable member of a group.’

‘As a parent, I would like to thank Miss Tamara and Miss Maria for my daughter’s joy of being involved in the world of dance! Since joining over 5 years ago, she learned new skills of Ballet, Tap, Modern and performing, made new friends and has become more confident.’

A pupil’s parent (2020)

‘My daughter LOVES Southborough School of Dance. The standard is exceptionally high and Tamara always gives 110% to the girls helping them reach their full potential whilst having fun.’

A pupil’s parent (2018)

‘My daughter has been learning with Tamara for twelve and a half years and she has loved every minute! Tamara inspires such enjoyment of dancing in every lesson and each child benefits from individual and careful attention. The whole dance school has a very welcoming and inclusive approach.’

A PUPIL’s mother (2018)

‘My daughter has been with Tamara and the school for over 12 years now. After just year one, we noticed the amount of skills my daughter had gained compared to her previous dance school. The amount of self-discipline and fitness that benefits my child’s development with the school is something I am happy to pay for, but what was unexpected is the feeling of a big family atmosphere. Hence, my daughter met some of her best friends there.’

a pupil’s father (2018)

‘Small friendly dance school focused on excellence in training. The Summer school is particularly fun for younger pupils and the annual show is always a sell out and well organised.’
