Firstly thank you and Susan for the teaching that led to the great Jazz and Musical Theatre marks this week! My daughter was apprehensive as always but really pleased with the results. - Parent

My daughter is keen to do as much dancing now. When we first came to Prima we as parents were worried she wouldn't cope with doing all these classes, especially as she was only doing 2 lessons at her previous school and now she can't get enough. I think she has settled brilliantly at Prima, seems a lot more confident in herself relative to before. - Parent

My daughter is still over the moon about her exam results, we all are, she thought the exam had gone well but don't think you can judge what you're going to get, it's a real boost to her confidence. Thanks for all your support and helping her get such a fantastic result. - Parent

My daughter is loving her time at your school, thriving in the whole environment. We only wish we had come sooner. - Parent

I was really pleased with the progress my daughter has made with both her Ballet and Jazz from what I saw at Watch Week she is coming on brilliant. Hats off to both you and Susan for doing an excellent job. - Parent

What a brilliant Baby Ballet class we had today! It's always fantastic but today Miss Lisa and Miss Claire introduced a Christmas/Winter theme. The Baby Ballerinas were prancing like reindeer, dancing with tinsel and even skating to the Bolero! Just fabulous!!! - Parent

Many thanks for our free trial week. I was surprised by the size of the school - clearly very popular! The students were all happy and buzzing going from one class to the next. My son will certainly be challenged which is a must for any child wishing to maximise their potential. Everyone was so friendly and we loved the whole vibe of your school. - Parent

Just wanted to say how much my daughter is enjoying Prima, she has been very excited about all the classes she has done last week. She has spoken with such enthusiasm about all the classes so far which is as a parent is lovely to hear. This last week has given my daughter some vital confidence which we are sure she will continue to develop. - Parent

Clare Robson is a highly dedicated teacher, and she believes in every single one of her students. Throughout the years this lady has helped me progress, seeing me and my class mates through exams, giving us the technique and skill needed to pass comfortably. She has took time to mentor me individually, so that I could achieve the levels and improve enough to attend a professional dance college, where I gained teaching qualifications and got my first professional dance job. Within her dance acadamy, Clare offers a wide variety of classes at a largly discounted rate, enabling those on a lower income, such as myself, the chance to try out "something new" and possibly succseed and carry it on into a profession if they wish to do so, not just leaving it for those with the funds to do as they please. The quality of the training is second to none, no matter your background you are guaranteed to recieve the same treatment. Many of the students that attend this dance school get accepted into professional dance shows or colleges/schools/trainning acadamys through out the UK. - Former student

Not sure where to start as we have so much to say about PRIMA!!! What a wonderful 8 years you have given my daughter, she has loved every minute with you and her dancing has gone from strength to strength. We feel you have nurtured her every step of the way. She has had so many life changing opportunities in her ballet so far to which we feel she could not of achieved without PRIMA's help... It most certainly has given her life experience needed to audition for top ballet schools around the country and it has given her the confidence to join 'The Hammond' in September!! Her opportunities to perform both in PRIMA shows and local theatres, as well as 27 exams in ballet, tap, modern and musical theatre including her first vocational exam this summer have been an amazing experience. Thank you Miss Clare, Miss Susan and Miss Becky and all other staff involved in the smooth running of a successful dance school !!!! - Parent

Thanks for e-mailing the results. My daughters are very happy with their marks especially my eldest, she wasn't expecting a distinction, she's over the moon. We all just wanted to say thank you. - Parent

Just to let you know my daughter was offered a principal ballet part yesterday in 'Fame' at the Sunderland Empire, opening the show, and four other Prima students have main dance roles. One of them is also playing the sax in the show. Great advert for Prima!! - Parent

The Advanced Foundation exam was exactly 90 minutes long! They were all 'flushed' shall we say when they came out! All beautifully presented as usual and a credit to Prima! - Parent

My daughters have been at Prima for about six months now and are really enjoying all the lessons. I'm amazing at how they've picked up Jazz and Tap having only studied Ballet previously, they are constantly dancing everywhere they go. It's nice for me to see them so happy and I'm looking forward to Watch Classes Week. - Parent

My daughter and I both agreed there was a lovely positive vibe at Prima, and that is all we are seeking, somewhere my daughter can feel confident and hopefully develop her dancing. - Parent

You must be congratulated at the standard of the Prima students at the EYB  again this year! They are a real credit to you - thank you! I hope you enjoyed the show as much as we did! - Parent

I'd just like to say how grateful I am for all the help and support you've given me. - Parent

Thank you for your continued hard work - my daughter is really enjoying her new classes. - Parent

What a great performance from the Prima students on Saturday evening - beautifully presented! Whoever was in charge of hair/make-up did a fantastic job to match the wonderful choreography! Those swans were fantastic. Thank you to everyone backstage! - Parent

A special thank you from my husband and I and my daughter of course for all your hard work over the last 8 years! - Parent

Credit where it's due to one amazing ballet teacher. You need to be careful nurturing dancers to get them there and that's what you have given them every step of the way. - Parent

Natural ability is a bonus but it has to be guided in the correct way and those two girls are Prima Ballerinas through their own hard work and commitment as well as you giving them the same, you have nurtured that talent too. My daughter enjoys her dancing and you are fab Clare and I know my daughter will never be a star but you still give her the same attention as those girls. Take credit where it's due x - Parent

Prima Academy of Performing Arts ROCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! - Parent

You must be so proud of all your girls and boys! My kids love Prima and so does my wife! If it's good for them it's good for me! Thank you Clare! - Parent

You brought my daughter through from the age of 7 and we will always be grateful for that. My daughter and I have so much to thank you for, you have nurtured her and been an amazing teacher. - Parent 

You're fab Clare and my daughter loves you. - Parent

Thank you for the e-mail with the exam results. My daughter and I are delighted with her result considering she had been ill in the run up to the exam and wasn't well on the day. I would also like to say thank you to you and all the dance teachers for working so hard to help all of the students do so well. In fact when I looked at the results across the grades, you certainly achieve excellent standards. - Parent

Thank you to you for your hard work in preparing my daughter for her exam. - Parent

I would like to pass on thanks to you and Becky re the Intermediate results - all the girls are over the moon! This has really focussed my daughter on her future too and dance will definitely be a big part of that! Thank you again. - Parent

Loved Watch Classes Week, can't believe the progress my son has made. Thanks to Clare, Susan, Emma-Jane and Becky for all your hard work. - Parent

You have been amazing for my daughter and we can never thank you enough. - Parent

Prima students have been brilliant at Bugsy at the Sunderland Empire - one of your students' musical talents have been well showcased and one of your boys' speech clear and well delivered in a fab New York accent! One of your girls was awarded the Director's mention for character acting on the opening night too. It's been another great experience for them. - Parent

Thank you to all the teachers at Prima. I feel my daughter has grown so much in confidence since starting in November. She loves it so much and talks about you all the time. I'm not sure how we're going to cope over the summer break but she already can't wait to come back in September. Parent

I have seen a huge improvement in my son's attitude. Today he came bouncing out of the class with a huge smile on his face! He gave me a big 'YEAH' when I asked if the class was sooooo good and fun. It's not often he has such good feedback about anything so I just wanted to let you know and say thank you, your hard work is appreciated. - Parent

Thanks for the wonderful show, the children were all fantastic and they were all having such fun, my husband and I really enjoyed it and can't wait for the next one! Thanks again to everyone for all their hard work. - Parent

Saturday's show was tremendous....the best yet! Thanks for everything - my daughter's face shows how much she enjoys it all!!

I had to contact you to say we loved the show. My mother in law came and was in tears during the pointe dance. Fantastic to see the progress in the girls. Also loved the mix of musical theatre. Well done to all staff. - Parent

Just to say thank you for putting on a fantastic show yesterday!! We enjoyed every minute. The dancing was fantastic, the children seemed so happy and confident on stage.

Just letting you know the opening night of The Tempest was wonderful - you can be very proud of the girls. The cast have been marvellous with them and marvelled at their pointe work! They were thanked by the Director, Chair and all the cast last night for the effort and enthusiasm and many of the audience congratulated them on leaving. Their 'Sprite' dance pieces were interwoven with speech in parts and each piece added something visual and energetic to the performance - it really was fabulous! The Chair suggested they would like to work with the girls on future productions and I am sure they would be willing as they have been so well received. A really exciting opportunity and the girls were a credit to Prima! - Parent

We have been attending Street classes for the past three weeks and my daughter loves it. We have been to a few dance schools lately and must say we think we have left the best till last. - Parent

Fantastic, really enjoyed watching my daughter in class today :) - Parent

Thank you for letting us in to watch, it's great to see the progress they are making. I always look forward to it! - Parent

Watch Classes week was fab. I can't believe how much they have come on in a year. I love the way you get them to do the moves without them realising they are doing Ballet moves! I hope that they all pass their exams in a few weeks time! I'm one proud mam, thanks Clare for all your hard work. - Parent

A great performance from Troupe members again at the Wetlands Trust in Washington - Saturday and Sunday 26th & 27th June 2010! Despite the scorching heat the girls performed a full programme of dance and musical theatre numbers. Staff at the centre commented on how professional the girls' all were and on their hard work! Special thank you to Emma - Jane (and trusty assistant Lucy Helen) for arranging the event! Particular thanks to 'MC Ruth' for her DJ skills! - Parent

I was a student at prima, I left last september to go to college, thanks to the dicipline, help and support from all the teachers in the school, I am now in a professional dance college, and I'm able to attend the long hours and the demands that my course requires of me. Once again thank you so so much, you, as a school have done more for me than I think you realise!! - Former student

Just had to email to say how refreshed my daughter seems after dancing today... she is buzzing and hasn't stopped talking about her classes, she loved the unset class and she had so much fun!! I find it astonishing that she doesn't get sick of all this dance, more so the amount of ballet and how you manage to keep it edgy all the time!! So well done to you and credit where its due. - Parent

She lives for her classes – a great advert for Prima! Congratulations to everyone ! - Parent

I need to thank you for making ballet the highlight of my daughter's week and she is devastated that we have to leave and she will no longer be able to do princess ballet. All the best for the future and again thank you!!!! - Parent

My daughter has been going to these classes since she was 2 1/2. The teachers are great, extremely professional and have a great manner with the children. My little girl is going through a little bit of separation anxiety at the moment. Clare has been a godsend and still manages to get her in without fuss. Once she's in she's fine. Very and experienced and professional throughout a great recommendation! - Parent

The party went very well - all the girls were in their High School Musical uniforms. - Parent

I would like my daughter to do the Scholar Programme next term. Can I say my daughter has come on loads since last watch classes week and to get the feedback I have tonight I am over the moon for her, she certainly doesn't lack confidence. Susan and Nikki were lovely and have made my daughter want to dance a lot more. - Parent

Wow!!! What a fantastic performance from the dance troupe – really slick! Thank you for all your hard work. - Parent

They all love their classes, it is truly lovely to see them so excited about them so thank you again. - Parent

Thanks for another super day with the troupe, girls really enjoyed themselves... Bug dance super. Keep up fab work....  - Parent

Well done in obtaining Recognised School Status!  I know all of the teachers work really hard to ensure our children receive the best dance tuition.  The lessons are also fun so the children are eager to return. - Parent

Congratulations on achieving 'Recognised School Status' proud to be part of that status... also pleased that you are changing to the BBO this I believe can only improve standards and qualifications for the better! Well done. - Parent

I would like to say a big 'thank you' for putting on the lovely demonstration at the Galleries and giving my daughter an invaluable opportunity to dance and perform in front of so many people, which will give her so much more confidence, as have your teaching methods over the 4 years she has been attending your school. I have to say she lives for dancing as you have made it so enjoyable for her, and a welcoming place to be. Keep up the good work. - Parent

Galleries demo was a huge success - thanks for all your efforts, my daughter thoroughly enjoyed the day! - Parent

I started my ballet and modern just over a year ago. I have loved every minute of being at Prima. It has not just improved my actual dancing, but my confidence, everyday posture and performance, really it has improved everything that is remotely related to dancing. I LOVE PRIMA!!!! I wouldn't be who I am now without it. Thankyou Clare, Nikki and Susan! - Student, aged 13

My daughter enjoys coming to Prima, she enjoys the lessons (especially the unset ballet on Wednesday which is a big hit!), she really likes the teachers and has made lots of friends. From my point of view, I think that the organisation and professionalism shown by yourself is excellent. - Parent

Another big thank you for putting on a lovely demonstration for the girls to dance at the Galleries... The dances and costumes were super and I am really proud of my daughter who loved every minute of the whole day. You work so hard to train and teach all the dances and it shows in the performances. We are very proud to be part of Prima, and over the last 4 years you have provided my daughter with a real passion to dance, focus and try hard with all she does. (what a life skill to have!) You should be very proud of the job you do... - Parent

Thank you so much for the lovely classes my daughter attended and thoroughly enjoyed. - Parent

The school website is very informative, looks very professional and is regularly updated, thank you for this valuable facility. - Parent

Prima totally changed my life; without it and it's amazing teacher's, I wouldn't be where I am today. Prima (and all to do with it) taught me not just how to dance and perform but to enjoy activities outside of school, socialise, gain experience and have FUN! Clare and the other teachers encouraged me to persue dance as a possible career which I am traing to do. I owe everything I know to Prima! Thanks a million Clare, I'll never forget you. Miss everyone tonnes, keep dancing babes! - Student, aged 16

My daughter is in the Dinky tap class on Saturday mornings at Oxclose school. I am thrilled with the class and she has loved every session. Susan and Nikki are brilliant with them. When it was the parent's watching class I couldn't believe how fabulous the whole class performed. It truly brought a tear to my eye to see my daughter do so well. - Parent

I love Prima... and my teachers! Dancing is part of life now and I look forward to my classes 3 times a week. I do tap, ballet, modern, musical theatre and unset ballet. Thank you. - Student, aged 6

Your school is miles better than any of the dancing lessons around here, the teachers are far better they engage with the children and get the best out of them whilst making it enjoyable, your classes are smaller, and you are also much more organised so everything goes much more smoothly. So I'll be sticking with you and commuting! But I wondered if there was another dance class which my daughter could do either just before or just after her new class to benefit more  from your fantastic school. - Parent

The Empire performance was great, my daughter enjoyed it, the dances were lovely. - Parent

Just a quick message to say thank you for last Saturday's wonderful Empire performance - I know I am bias but the girls were brilliant and I appreciate the effort you have to put in to make it all happen! - Parent

Congratulations on Saturday’s performance – I loved it all and thought the girls were brilliant! - Parent

I didn't want my daughter to miss her class. She loves it so much and watched a full hour of Darcy Bussell 10 best ballet moments and insisted on wearing her ballet shoes. - Parent

I just to say thank you for giving my daughter the opportunity to Dance in the performance on Saturday night. The dances all look very professional and well rehearsed. keep up the super work. - Parent
