Parent - "I just wanted to thank you for the fantastic opportunity you gave Emily in recommending that she audition for Les Miserables. If it wasn’t for you, then Emily would never have had one of the best experiences of her life. We are so grateful, and Emily can’t wait for the next thing to come up! Thanks once again for everything (including the flowers on the last night – although I know Emily wants to thank you for those herself).
Best wishes, Christopher
Parent - " ARTS is the perfect place for children (and adults!) to learn to dance, act, sing or play musical instruments, but it's more than that; it's a great place to meet new people and make new friends, have fun, gain confidence, and become involved in a whole host of events where otherwise the opportunity wouldn't be presented. The ARTS show, every 18 months or so, provides a fantastic opportunity for everybody involved, at every level, to get on the stage and perform in a wonderfully professional show, in front of family and friends. It is a display of all the hard work of every student and teacher and is the highlight of the ARTS calender. Everybody, performers and audience, without exception, loves the ARTS show!"
Parent - "I also want to say thank you to you and the girls, Em absolutely loves Arts and hearing her say yesterday its like home brought tears to my eyes! I think dancing is going to be her lifeline! Thanks again you do an amazing job with the kids and I take my hat off to you as juggling a family too is very hard!"
Professional Musician - "I've been a professional musician for the last 25years, 18 of those were working for Andrew Lloyd Webber with Starlight Express and the wonderful thing is most of those dancers on stage came from a roots level region dance school just like this.It's wonderful just seeing them going through the years of dancing and getting it together and some of them fulfilling their dreams of appearing on the West End stage and it all stems back to the way they are taught in the first place."
Testimonial from Onward Players - "Since 1994 Anglia Region Theatre School dancers have been very much involved with the annual Pantomimes produced by Onward Players, (a Drama Group which includes People with Learning Difficulties.) ARTS – with their senior and junior dancers - have made a major contribution to the Pantomimes with their delightful presentations, and professional approach, thus enabling people with learning difficulties to perform in a show which reaches a very high standard.Thank you ARTS! We appreciate the Principals, Victoria Winship and Janet Wright for making our Pantomime part of your regular engagements. Your skills and performances are much appreciated!"
Student - "Dance is a big part of my life and you have been the catalyst to make it so. Being given the scholarship allowed me the opportunity to study tap and modern and this lead me to want to explore musical theatre and singing and gave me extra confidence. I am sure the skills and experiences that I gained at ARTS provided the bedrock for helping me with my Drama GCSE studies. I found out recently I gained an A* grade! Thank you for all the experiences you have given me, especially being awarded the scholarship, I am still extremely honoured and grateful."
Thank you all for your kind words.
