We also have a number of great reviews from existing and past pupils. These give you a true insight into the idodance experience and what you can expect.

Such a lovely dance group who make you feel at ease, particularly as my Husband and I are complete beginners. Great methods of teaching and Bea, Lee, Derran and Debbie are all so kind and really know their stuff. Would recommend them to anyone who has always fancied a bit of Ballroom!

Great dance school. Friendly, welcoming, patient instructors and helpers. The pace of learning is just right and there are videos posted as revision for home practice. My wife and I have signed up for a second term and hope to keep going and improving longer term.

We didn’t think we would be this excited having never danced before. Love the teaching, very supportive and helpful no matter your level of dance.
