All of my three children attend the Caroline Lester School of Dance and
two of them have been at the school since 2009. The eldest girls
recently gained distinctions in their ballet exams and Miss Caroline
taught them not only the exercises, dances and positions, but also the
importance of practice and perseverance. They all love the ballet
lessons and one of their schoolteachers has commented on their
graceful balletic posture!
I have three girls attending the Caroline Lester School of Dance. They
have been attending for 2 years now and have passed their Primary ballet
and Grade 1 ballet with distinctions an merit. Since they have been
attending the school, it is apparent that the girls go to ballet because
of how they carry themselves; posture, grace, elegance and confidence.
The School has helped immensely with one of my daughters, in particular,
with her coordination and
following instructions as she has Dyspraxia. Her confidence has soared
as well as an improvement to her coordination and balance.
I am very pleased with the progress and achivements my daughters have attained since attending the school.
