L'Ecole de Danse Grade 5 ballet class is a confident and inspiring group of dancers that have been taught by Eriko.
My daughter started Hip-Hop classes last year with Eriko and has enjoyed every minute. She loves learning new things every week and the year end performance was a highlight for her. Thanks Eriko!
My daughter has been dancing with Eriko for the past seven years. In that time she has participated in ballet, jazz and hip-hop classes. She has always enjoyed going to Erikoʼs classes and has made many great friends over the years. The standard of Erikoʼs teaching is very high as evidenced by the outstanding exam results achieved by her students every year.
My Daughter Gerri has been attending L'Ecole de Danse for the last 3 Years, the first year in a Ballet Class and the last 2 Years in both Jazz and Boys Hip Hop. Gerri wanted the challenge of dancing with some talented boys and Eriko was happy to include her in this class.
Milly is not only learning to dance she is learning a love of dance. Through the small and personal classes, she is learning to take her turn, to listen in class and to encourage others.
It is hard to imagine a gaggle of little 2 year olds making it through a ballet class, let alone a recital but with the magic of fairy Erico anything is possible ! My little one was just over 18 months old when, inspired by her big sister, she started fairy ballet. Initially I was dancing with her (a good workout for me) but after just a few lessons she was twirling and dancing around the room all on her own and quite indignant when I tried to help! Erico is kind and very patient with the little ones but also teaches them how to wait their turn and follow instructions. Ballet is the highlight of the week for my 2 year old. She loves it.
I had attended several different dance classes with my 4 year old before enrolling with Erico. Ericoʼs class is the best we have tried. She strikes a great balance between structure and fun her in class and the little girls adore her. My little girl has developed a love of music and dance through ballet and though perhaps not yet entirely graceful she is certainly more flexible and agile. As a delicious little lion in her end of year recital my daughter amazed me in her ability to learn and remember a detailed routine. Most importantly though she has fun and always leaves class with a smile.
My daughter Abbie, now 11, has been learning ballet with L'Ecole de Danse since she was a preschooler. She enjoys her twice weekly lessons & her progress is reflected in her exam results. The concert is a highlight that Abbie looks forward too each year. I am always blown away by the calibre of the performances, costumes & variety.
At L'Ecole de Danse Frank is learning the discipline of dance in a fun and relaxed atmosphere that welcomes his gender and individuality.
“Our daughter Sofie has been with LʼEcole de Danse for the last two years and during this time we have enjoyed watching her develop and grow in confidence as a dancer. We know that our daughterʼs progress is in no small
Scarlett has had a wonderful time this past year in her primary 1 Jazz class at L'Ecole de Danse. Eriko is a loving, gentle teacher who all the students admire and respect and seems to bring out the best in each and every one of them. My daughter Scarlett in one year has learnt rhythm, co-ordination and confidence through this Jazz class and has now awakened a love of dance and music that she will carry with her throughout her life. The dance school is a warm family friendly environment that nutures children of all abilities. I strongly reccommend L'Ecole de Danse to anyone interested in introducing dance to their kids.
My 2 year old Daughter Bess and I look forward to her fairy dancing class on a Monday morning every week. There is nothing more entertaining and heart warming than watching a flock of tiny ballerinas dancing around flowers and leaping over blooming broomsticks. Eriko has a natural warmth that the sometimes unruly toddlers seem to respond to and I am always amazed at what they pick up each week. I would reccommend this class to any parent who has a toddler, daughter OR son to try it out, it is only on a casual basis so if its not for them then no harm done. Its a lot of fun and the highlight of our week! Emily Somerville-Ryan mother of Bess Somerville-Ryan Age 2, Fairy dance (2-3 year olds)
Kristian, age 7 has been doing hip hop with Eriko for just one term. During this tern we have seen Kristian devolop his skills as a dancer but is also much more confident all thanks to the support of Eriko. L'Ecole de Danse has taught/given Kristian a love and appreciation for dancing and music which is provided in a fun, friendly atmosphere. Kristian gets rather excited about going to his Friday hip hop classes.
Heidi absolutely loves her ballet classes at l'ecole de danse! She especially loved the opportunity to dance at the autumn harvest festival and at the end of year concert. She watches the films of both again and again and it has been great for her confidence. She is learning to dance and most importantly, having fun!
My daughter has danced with L'ecole de Danse for 5 years now. She takes both ballet and Jazz classes and loves them both. Both Sasha and Eriko are fantastic teachers, helping our daughter to get top marks in her dance exams. Eriko and Sasha have the right combination of discipline and caring. I think the thing that sets them apart from other dance schools is that the primary focus is on the students enjoying their dancing, and participating and gaining confidence no matter what their level or ability. I highly recommend L'ecole de Danse for your child's dancing experience.
Our daughter has been with L'Ecole de Danse for six years, taking classes in jazz, ballet and hip hop. Eriko treats her students and their parents like family. The children love her. She is a wonderful teacher - constructive, supportive and creative. L'Ecole de Danse has a friendly, family atmosphere, caring but with high technical standards. It's a great place to learn to love dance.
