‘It was fun converting our kitchen into a makeshift ballet studio every Saturday afternoon, and we thought it worked brilliantly. It sounds fanciful but an atmosphere of serenity and beauty seemed to descend on the house for the duration of Freya’s lesson. I know she got a lot out of it, and we greatly appreciate the trouble you have taken to keep everything going to your usual high standards in such unusual circumstances. Thank you.’

Thanks again – and also for your efficient responses! Of the ballet schools I contacted, you were the only consistent communicator. Thank you. I’m pleased we found a class that works for Ella so she can keep dancing.

What a great session! I have not done ballet since I had a couple of disastrous classes aged 6, but watching your class was inspiring and – for a fleeting moment – even made me think I could consider joining!

I am such a novice and it will be challenging but Ben took a lot of care to meet all levels which was really nice.
