“Thank you so so so much because I used to think that ballet was really girly and it’s definitely inspired me!”

“Thank you for coming. I now want to maybe be a ballet dancer when I am older. Hope you had fun teaching us.”
“I loved all the dances you taught us, especially the wave dance and I now know ballet is also for boys. Have you ever thought of going on Britain’s got Talent?”
