"My three daughters have been taking ballet lessons at Point the Way Ballet School since the age of 3 and they absolutely love it. The school provides ballet classes, following the Royal Academy of Dance syllabus, which offers the opportunity for children to enter exams if they wish. This gives the children a huge sense of achievement when they move up to the next level. Miss Julia also produces a bi-annual show allowing her pupils to perform on stage, an experience that the children all thoroughly enjoy. As both a parent and a qualified ballet teacher, I would have no hesitation in recommending Point the Way Ballet School to any budding ballerina!"

"We have three girls who all joined the school at Pre-Primary. The tuition they have received from the school and the progress they have made through the different stages has been outstanding. We have watched the girls develop such beautiful poise and grace, which has been complimented outside of the school. Testimony to this can be seen in the bi-annual show, a fantastic production and a treasured memory."
"All of my four children have had ballet lessons at Point the Way Ballet School over the last 13 years. They always look forward to their lessons and enjoy working towards the Royal Academy of Dance exams. It is very exciting for the children when they do a show every couple of years and we find them a delight to watch. I would highly recommend this school to boys and girls of all ages."
"I have known Julia for over six years and both my daughters have thoroughly enjoyed learning ballet at Pointe the Way. They have grown in confidence, developed good friendships and made us very proud with their performances at the Summer Showcase! As well as their RAD qualifications our girls have learned valuable life skills too."
"I would highly recommend these classes. Julia Essex taught my son for six years, giving him fantastic encouragement and a solid foundation in ballet. He now dances with the Greek National Ballet in Athens which is testimony to the quality of her teaching."
