What our Mouve family has to say

  • I’ve been sending my kids to Louise’s classes since they opened nearly 20 years ago. In this time, we’ve got to know the staff well. Each one of them have injected in my children, so much confidence and love. Wow! The teachers, the variety of classes and all that it’s given to them, has been fabulous. The vibe in everything they do, is simply incredible. The end of year shows have been WOW.  Each year, they get better, and honestly, I don’t know how they find ways to do this!! I wish I’d had all this when I was growing up!! Fomo! Louise and co.. you guys ROCK. Thanks for welcoming us into this awesome family.
  • Since the early age of 2 I’ve been coming to DWL and I loved it so much that 18 years later as a young adult I’m still here, as a student as well as a member of staff. I’ve grown up here, it’s a huge part of my childhood, Louise and the team have given me so much more than just dance skills- I’ve made so many friends over the years, gained confidence and found a passion. The love and care this school has for its students and staff is like none other! It’s an honour to be part of the DWL team and I look forward to its successful future. -Yael
  • Sophie has been dancing with DWL for 10 fabulous years.  Routines to music are easy to follow and catchy that you don’t even realise you are working out.  Confidence boosting for sure – thank you DWL you are an absolute pleasure to deal with at all times.
