Testimonials

Mrs Hughes

My son has thoroughly enjoyed attending the 2-4 year old session each week and has developed not only in confidence but I have noticed a great improvement in his gross motor skills in the way he is able to control his body to music and instruction. The children are asked to bring along a teddy each week and Lyn-Louise has not been deterred when my son has brought his toy snake or spider allowing him to be a 'boy'.

The class content is fun and the children are having a great time following the adventures of Melody bear - if only my life was so exciting! Lyn-Louise supports the themes she introduces each week with music and related objects and photos which is an ingenious way of helping children to understand should they not have had a first hand experience of that week's theme.

My wife found the Buckingham School of Disco Dancing over 12 months ago and we enrolled our 2 year-old daughter Phoebe immediately. 

The teaching style is very personal and seems to be versatile for children of all characters.  Parents are able to sit and watch their children learn and grow with the dance lessons which we think is great, and my daughter has thoroughly enjoyed every lesson.  My son Joshua recently turned 2 years of age and has also joined with his sister and absolutely loves it. 

The sessions for the 2-4 year olds have a good level of variation to keep the children interested, but have a routine back bone which helps children to build their co-ordination and listening skills and it really seems to work.  I would recommend Lyn-Louise as a fantastic teacher and the Buckingham School of Disco Dance for any children.

I have known Lyn-Louise in a client capacity for over two years.

Lyn-Louise is a dedicated professional dance teacher who is passionate about inspiring and enriching childrens lives in being creative in dance, music & movement within the programme that she delivers.

 

Lyn-Louise is enthusiastic, who communicates very well with both parent and child at their level, kind, warm, friendly, patient, polite and courteous at all times, recognising and supporting the needs of all children.

In the classes Lyn-Louise encourages children to improve their skills and developing in keeping healthy, listening, understanding, discipline, control, co-ordination and movement, moving rhythmically, helping the children to respond and use their imagination/interpretation in relation to a variety of musical pieces, encouraging self belief, helping children to achieve personal goals.

 

Lyn-Louse also helps the children to recognise and explore how sounds can be changed and match movements to music-teaching children about timing, rhythm & beat. New dances that are introduced in class are age appropriate making it easy for the children to imitate, this is well supported by rewards of praise & recognition along with lots of repetition!

 

My children have built a repertoire of dances that they have learnt in class, they will spontaneously perform in front of family, friends and at school with a great sense of achievement. We have a great sense of belonging to Lyn-Louise and ‘The Buckingham School of Disco Dancing’ and are happy to represent the school at competitions/shows/pantomimes.

 

My eldest daughter states “Lyn-louise is a very nice teacher-she has given me confidence in learning to dance - I really enjoy performing in shows and competitions”.

 

Both my husband and I are tremendously proud of our childrens on-going achievements.

My daughter although has only just started Disco dancing lessons with Lyn-Louise, absolutely loves them and has done from the very start, as she has been made to feel most welcome, as have I. I have been amazed by how much she has learnt in such a short time and find her practising her dance moves on a daily basis! She can't wait for her first competition! A big thank you to Lyn-Louise for making us feel at home.

I only had to see my daughter smile to know that Buckingham school of disco dancing was the right choice! She has now been dancing there for 4 years – and the smiling hasn’t stopped. Even when she is waiting to go on stage / arena / exam hall the confidence built into her by Lyn-Louise allows the smiles to shine through. My youngest daughter has just started in the 5-7 years group and the smiles seem to be catching! Miss Lyn is a warm professional who has found the perfect balance of exams, competitions and just plain fun! Its not even a chore to go along as a parent– thanks to the warm welcome from Jean and Barbara - with not bad coffee either!

Mrs Kittel

Our 5 year old son has been coming to dancing for over two years now and really enjoys it. At the beginning of last term he moved up to the second class. This is where more formal teaching of dance routines begins. Lyn-Louise has helped this to be a smooth transition and his enjoyment has been sustained. Our two year old daughter has now been dancing for a term and a half in the beginners’ class. She was desperate to join the class having watched her older brother perform each week! She really looks forward it and enjoys all the music and activities. It is a fun and active way to spend a Saturday morning.

Mrs Goodchild

As you know, Lily enjoys her classes with you very much and looks forward to them every week. The content of the classes are appropriate to the age group and very well structured for the whole 30 minutes. They are an excellent introduction for children of a young age to learn to follow instructions and self-discipline, without even knowing it because they are having so much fun. I asked Lily what she liked best about her classes and she said, "Being the caterpillar. I really like it when we are the caterpillar and we all walk together really slowly!"

Chloe Turvey

I started Buckingham School of Disco Dancing when I was really very young, and have been there for probably 7 years, and they were 7 really enjoyable and fulfilling years. Some of the most enjoyable things at dance include; the competitions we were lucky to be able to go to, the festivals held in Risborough and the lessons in general. The competitions were a great chance for me to build my confidence and just get out there and dance. The festivals were exciting and I loved being able to dress up with different clothes and funky hair styles! Every lesson we had on a Monday evening were a great way to unwind after a tiring school day and Lyn as a teacher is fun loving and sociable as well as professional and a great dancer. I have achieved a lot from dance over the last few years, including passing five exams! (Scary but really worthwhile!) My confidence has grown significantly and I owe it all to dance, thank you Lyn-Louise!

I have been dancing at Buckingham School of Disco Dancing school for about six years now as I have a passion for dance. Despite that I am one of the older students attending I still look forward to attending the classes each week.

Throughout my years attending Lyn-Louise’s dance school I have developed my dance skills, which enabled me to achieve various levels of dance exams. Lyn-Louise has supported me throughout the years and is very patient towards all of us students. Lyn-Louise’s encouraging and positive attitude has lead me to keep climbing the ladder each year in my exams and to achieve where I am today!

Overall the dance school is fun and is full of friendly dancers’ where we support one another, during exams, competitions, performances and during the classes. From my years of dance I have enjoyed every moment learning new dances. Lyn-Louise implements into the dances; humour and modern dance moves to modern and old music. The type of dance: disco/freestyle allows you to develop your own interpretation of the dances and to make them your own individual moves, which is appealing to all dancers’ allowing us to have the opportunity of choice. 

Dancing has developed my confidence skills, learning to count the beats and various dances moves. Here I have obtained and maintained my passion for dance as a hobby and to make friends. Also the dance school gives all the dancers’ opportunities to take part in optional annually exams and friendly local competitions/performances.

Lyn-Louise is a friendly teacher who makes you feel welcomed and comfortable at all times and part of the group, at all stages/levels of dance. Lyn-Louise will help you to achieve what you want to gain from dancing, whether it be exams and competitions or just for fun and exercise! There are many aspects of dance which are suitable to various age groups and obtainable at: ‘Lyn-Louise’s Buckingham School of Disco Dance’.

Mrs Bull

My daughter Sarah joined Buckingham School of Disco Dance just after her 7th birthday and has loved every minute of the last 8 years since then! Not only have her dance and coordination skills improved while progressing though the ISTD exam syllabus, but she has gained confidence and maturity when dealing with peers, younger children and adults alike. Experiencing both success and disappointment in dance competitions and festivals has taught her valuable lessons in life which are a great insight into what the future will inevitably hold.  To see her smile when she dances says it all!

Mrs Searl

Lyn-Louise is really good with the children-my daughter was very shy and reluctant to join in at first but has now been dancing with Lyn-Louise for 2 years, in which time she has passed two exams and appeared in the local panto which she really enjoyed.

I have been coming to this dance group for over 3 years now. I enjoy every lesson because we do a mix of different dances so there is something for everyone. I have done 2 exams and several competitions which have both helped to boost my confidence.
