It had been 32 years since I danced ballet, and I just loved the class yesterday. Took me back to my youth, my creativity and I felt really great. I wasn’t embarrassed to let myself go a bit and feel the ballet in me again.

Thank you for a wonderful class last night, I had a wonderful time. While it’s been ages since I’ve actually done any ballet, it came back quicker than I expected, looking forward to next week’s class.

Discovering 2ballerinas has brought dance back into my life for which I am very grateful. Each time I finish a class I look forward to the next one. I have even embraced learning a new dance style I absolutely love, thanks to all the wonderful opportunities that this dance school provides. I could not recommend 2ballerinas more highly.

2ballerinas is a blessing in a crazy world. And a relatively inexpensive one. The teachers are warm, relaxed and skilled and there is a real sense of community in every class.
Because there are several classes for every level each week, you can always manage to get to one of them – or more if you get hooked… Even during lock-down there were online and Zoom classes available. Escapism at its best!

Rob McLachlan

2ballerinas represents an amazing opportunity for all ages (‘not so young’ in my case) to participate in excellent dance classes with very talented teachers.  As an older male dancer, it is difficult to find a suitable studio to attend where one doesn’t feel somewhat out of place. All of the teachers and students at 2ballerinas were very welcoming and I feel at ease whenever I visit.  It is a wonderful learning experience.
