Aug 2017 - My little girl Victoria, is 4 years old & started Disney Pop almost a year ago and she still loves it as much as she did at the beginning. She's always excited to go and shows us all her dance moves back at home. Along with being a great hobby, it has helped Victoria with co-ordination skills such as skipping and balancing. Overall a fantastic dance class and dance team. Visit Netmums to see more reviews
Aug 2017 - My daughter who is 15 now has been with Dance Act since she was 8 when she started an after school dance and musical theatre class and now has lessons in Ballet, Jazz/street, Tap and Modern and absolutely loves it. A few years ago she was lucky enough to be invited to Dance Act's fabulous Performance Team and has since performed at such amazing venues as The Royal Albert Hall, Sadlers Wells, The Stag Sevenoaks, The Hawth Crawley and is looking forward to performing at Disneyland Paris next year! Not content with that, she now also helps with Disney Pop and Baby Ballet so to say dance is her life is an understatement! I have no doubt that this is because of the wonderful teachers, especially, Vikki, Fiona, Kelly and Emily, the incredible facilities at The Howard Venue, Hextable, and the lifelong friends she has made since joining Dance Act. We're so proud to be part of the Dance Act family and would highly recommend Vikki and her team! Visit Netmums to see more reviews
Aug 2017 - Dance Act Theatre School is a huge part of our lives and we have been part of the ‘Dance Act Family’ for the last 10 years! I have 2 daughters who do a range of classes & are also part of the Performance Team. My girls have & continue to get so many great opportunities to dance at some fantastic venues such as the Royal Albert Hall, Sadlers Wells, Her Majesty’s Theatre & Disneyland Paris! They have made so many memories that will stay with us forever! We look forward to making many more.
The biggest plus of Dance Act in my opinion is the confidence, skill & team ethic my girls have been taught & that has & continues to be been nurtured by the fantastic teachers. My girls absolutely love it & their teachers. Visit Netmums to see more reviews

April 2015 - Outstanding performance from all the girls at Sadlers Wells on Sunday, couldn’t have been more proud of them all. Every time they perform their dedication to dance, the school and their team shine through. They are blessed with great team members and dance teachers who provide support, fun, team atmosphere and great choreography, in my opinion, is the ingredients of something special ‘ Dance Act Performance Team’
Jan 2015 - My daughter Sophie has been attending Dance Act for some time now, within that time her confidence has grown and she feels really at home there. This is down to the friendly atmosphere, the teachers, Vikki, Fiona & Kelly and the support of Sonia Irving. Since joining she has matured, been able to express herself through dance and meet lots of lovely friends. With hard work and excellent direction she was allowed to be part of some Dance Shows, which was a great experience especially performing at the Royal Albert Hall last year. The girls were amazing, each and every one, and I felt a huge sense of pride for them all, they were professional and looked amazing with all their smiles, and you could tell they were having the time of their lives, what an opportunity for them all. We start a busy and exciting year in 2015 with many PT shows penciled in already. Sophie is looking forward to wearing all the exceptional costumes! and again being part of such a fantastic team. My daughter has achieved so much with the help and support of this dance school and the teachers that run it, they want the best for 'their' girls, so much so that Sophie was successful in her audition for a dancer in Aladdin at Gravesend this year. Well Done Dance Act - for being a number 1 dance school! - visit Netmums to see more reviews

Mar 2014 - I have a nine year old and twin five year old girls that attend dance act and would recommend this dance school to anyone. All my girls enjoy their classes so much and look up to the talented teachers and seniors at the school. If you want your child to experience a high level of teaching but have fun too this is the dance school! If my girls dance half as well as the seniors at the school when they are the same age as them I will be a very happy lady. - visit Netmums to see more reviews
Feb 2014 - My daughter has just turned 4 and has been attending Disney Pop and Baby
Ballet at Dance Act for around a year. In the time that she has been there her confidence, capability and coordination has improved so much. She absolutely loves going and always
looks forward to Friday's! She took part in the variety show a few weeks back and although it was exhausting for her she loved every single moment. The whole production was very professional and
everyone at Dance Act put in so much hard work. I was a chaperone on one of the days and it was amazing to see how much went into the show.
I would definitely recommend Dance Act if you have children interested in dancing/performing or even if they just need a boost in confidence! it definitely teaches them coordination skills, how to mix with others, how to follow instructions and most of all its great fun for them! - visit Netmums to see more reviews

May 2013 - My daughter has been learning ballet and tap since she was 3. She joined Dance Act Theatre a year and a half ago. I must say its a brilliant place for kids to learn and thoroughly enjoy. When I was informed that they will be doing 3 shows in 2 days I got worried thinking they will be knackered at the end of weekend and has got school next day, but I was proved wrong and credit goes to Vikki and team. The kids just loved it and while I was chaperoning I realised it is very well organised for kids and younger ones. Very enthusiastic students and teachers. Well done Team and students - Visit Netmums to see more reviews
May 2012 - My daughter aged 6 has been attending Dance Act since Sept 2011. She always enjoys the classes and comes home demonstrating what she has learnt. she was very excited about her first show, she enjoyed the experience and keeps asking when is the next show. I cried when I saw her first performance I am so proud of her. The older students performances were jaw dropping, the younger students look up to them, my daughter for one wants to be able to dance like they did at the weekend, even trying to recreate the dances at home. I chaperoned all day Sunday it was well organised the children were all well behaved and professional at all times. They were great at helping each other out, occupying each other back stage as it was a long day. I will definitely be offering to chaperone in the future and allow my daughter to experience the thrill of performing on stage again. Well done again to all who made the show possible and a success. Allowing the students to show Kent what Dance Act is all about - Visit Netmums to see more reviews
May 2012 - My daughter studies Ballet,Tap and Street Jazz with Vikki and her team and is also a guest member of The Performance Team. I cannot stress how much she loves being a pupil at Dance Act and how much she has benefitted from from it, she has passed all of her dance exams to date and the improvements in her dancing are amazing to see. My daughter was privilleged to be selected for a number of dances at The Variety Show, across 3 dance genres and she was incredibly proud of the opportunity to be part of such an amazing dance production. As a parent, I wholeheartedly applaud vikki and her team and their positive and nurturing approach to all the pupils and also would like to mention the senior girls, whose positive influence and caring attitude towards the younger girls is wonderful. I would not hesitate to recommend Dance Act Theatre School to any parent who wishes their child to make friends and have fun, whilst being taught their dance genre to the highest standard – Visit Netmums to see more reviews
