Past Pupil Testimonials

Miss Jenny - Past Pupil.jpg

I joined Topaz as a Tiny aged 4 and I have never looked back since! From dancing horsey horsey with my teddy bear in tinies, to being Alice in Wonderland and the Fairy God-Mother on my pointe shoes... and even a crocodile for tap!

Dancing has been a huge part of my life! Topaz is more than just a dancing school, it is a family. The support I revieved throughout my GCSE's, A-Levels and University Exams is second to none. I never wanted to leave!

Alongside my academic studies, I competed all of my dancing exams in Tap and Ballet up to Advanced level with Miss Ann and Kate and progressed onto my teaching qualification with Miss Ann.

Not only did attending Topaz help me to relax and take my mind off studying for a while. Dancing also helped me in gaining a place in University to study my degree in Physiotherapy!

I spent most of my evenings and weekends at Topaz, helping out Miss Ann, Miss Kate and Miss Amy wherever I could. This gave me something to look forward to after being in school or University and a break from sitting down and learning all day!

Dancing sparked my interest in my career, I always wanted to know more about how to stretch and strengthen my body to improve my dancing abilities.

When I started studying for my degree, there was always plenty of people asking for advice too, which helped my assessment skills!

For the past 6 years, I have now worked full time as a Physiotherapist for the NHS and privately in a variety of working areas; out-patients, neuro rehab, orthopaedics, pilates, intensive care and so many more!

Even though I am working full-time, I still continue to go to Topaz for my own classes and to teach my lovely (now) Grade One's -- some of which I have taught since tinies! Dancing and teaching now is just as important for me. A time to relieve any stresses from work! All's it takes is a cheesy dance routine and you're guaranteed to leave with a smile!

I owe a lot to Topaz; my love of dancing, interest in my career, my happiest memories and best friends! Miss Ann and the team are just amazing and have been such a big part of my life. They kept me going during all my studies, and now I keep them going, offering advice were I can to help them to recover through any injuries!
