"I have seen our children grow in confidence - and feel quite comfortable with performing in front of others. They always have fun and are totally engaged - and that's vitally important." Vicky Hancock, Headteacher, Shobdon Primary School
“Dancefest have been working with us for several years now. Their performances provide inspiration to both the boys and girls. Their well organised and stimulating workshops keep pupils of all ages and abilities engaged and achieving.” Jackie Langer, Earl Mortimer College, Leominster
"It was fantastic to be able to interpret a story into a dance - with our own ideas. It's not just a 'girlie' thing and that's important!" Year 5 pupil
