“Your school is an inspiration”

“Being able to complete my Advanced 2 here is an extra bonus as it’s so hard to find this class at other studios! Vivienne Saxton is truly an inspiring teacher and having a regular pianist is an absolute treat”

“I have been training with ACS Dance Centre for 10 months now towards my DDE in Imperial Classical Ballet and Modern Theatre, and it has honestly been the best decision ever. Since day 1 of contacting ACS, I have received amazing support and help from everybody at their studio. I have been welcomed and facilitated extremely well even though I am a distance learner from Ireland and have only been able to travel to their Romford studios 4 times so far.
For all the academic work in Unit 1 and 5 I was given amazing notes for study and provided with endless feedback on all my work, no matter how stupid my questions may have been, I am forever grateful to Diana and Natalie for this. These Units were so enjoyable and fascinating and I loved studying topics such as Child Development, Safety and Muscles, that I am truly interested in. They have already helped me in understanding different students learning to dance in my own dance practice.
Ballet DDE Classes with Helen are always so interesting and fun, she is a fountain of knowledge; even now learning with her through Zoom for the past few months I am amazed how much I have progressed with her being able to teach us on-line without even needing a studio or face to face communication. This truly shows how accessible ACS makes the DDE Course for students who may live too far away to travel to their studios regularly. Mark and Diana have made all the modern DDE Classes fun, challenging yet accessible, especially for somebody like myself who has a lot less knowledge and experience of Modern compared to Ballet.
I am thrilled to be training for my DDE with ACS and cannot wait to be able to get back into their studios again soon.”

I have really enjoyed my time spent training at ACS! I found all the teachers and staff to be really encouraging and friendly and feel I have learnt so much to help improve my teaching skills and knowledge. Diana was so helpful in all aspects of studying for the teaching qualifications and has made the process of completing all the units very smooth. The DDE classes with Helen have been really inspiring. She is incredibly knowledgeable and I always enjoy the classes with her. It's been so lovely working with a great pianist on a weekly basis too. I would highly recommend ACS for anyone wishing to further their teacher training and study for ISTD teaching qualifications.

Studying ballet for the year with ACS taught me a great deal personally and professionally. I have left with a greater understanding and appreciation of the ballet syllabus, and been given teaching skills and training methods I am sure I will continue to use for a very long time. Thank you!

Thank you for taking me in to your DDE family part way through and helping me to gain my confidence back again!
