"The recent exam results are a fantastic testament to your lovely team and all the time and effort you put in. You should be so proud of all the effort and sacrifice you make. You, and the dance school, make such a positive impact on the lives of the young people you train and give them skills and ability they will keep for a life time. Well done and thank you. You are stars!"
Marie Brown, Parent.
"I'd never danced before so attending my first [adult tap] class was nervewracking. Eventually I bit the bullet and went along. I was immediately put at ease by the teacher and made welcome by the other ladies in the group. Some weeks on and I am addicted to tap dancing. Great class and I'd recommend anyone thinking about giving it a go, to just do it!!"
Deborah, Tap n Tone class member
"My children have attended other dance classes in the area, but I can honestly say that Oris Dance is the happiest, most fun, organised and professional my husband and I have seen. Miss Lindsay, Miss Zoe and the team invest so much time and patience with every single one of the children. I can't imagine my girls moving dance schools again."
Helen Jones, Parent
"Just a line to say what a pleasure it was to be backstage yesterday. You are so organised - covering absolutely everything in great detail!
"...I wanted to tell you that I thought the show was great and incredibly well organised...I thoroughly enjoyed it! Thank you!"
Joanne Penny, Parent
"That's Entertainment! Clearly you two CanCan do a great job. Shame it's a wrap on this year's dance show, but you'll definitely be back for a sequel. Thank you for everything xx"
Angela Clarke, Parent
"The teachers are very patient with the children, especially the younger ones. I know my child is safe and well looked after in their dance class."
Jane Wiggins, Parent.
"The relaxed atmosphere of the classes makes them enjoyable for the children."
"I am very happy with Oris Dance. My daughter really enjoys the lessons and looks forward to it every week."

Well done to 60 of our dancers who took part in this year's Children in Need Tapathon on SUnday 18th November. The atmosphere was electric with all those shoes tapping together!
We're now waiting to hear whether we have beaten the current Guinness World Record for the largest tap dance across multiple venues. But if not, we still had a great fun day and raised lots of money for Children in Need. Thank you and well done to everyone involved.
We were so excited to have Kimberly Wyatt join us on the afternoon of 21st July. Kimberly ran two workshops for two different age groups working on technique, confidence and a fantastic commercial routine with us. There was also time for lots of photos and autograph signing! A fantastic day - thank you Kim! x
We had a lovely end to the school year with our yongest dancers at our Teddy Bear's Picnic on 21st July. Teddies, cake and of course lots of dancing! Thanks to everyone who came.
Thanks to St Julie's who invited us to perform at their summer gala on 15th July. Well done dancers - you did us proud!
What a brilliant afternoon we had at the St Helens Theatre Royal for our annual showcase. On 10th June we performed almost 30 numbers for our dancers' families - from age 2 all the way through to our '21-at-heart' 70-somethings! Thank you to everyone who took part and especially to all those people who attended and helped us to reach a record number of ticket sales!
Thanks and congratulations to 50 of our dancers who successfully completed this year's Children in Need Tapathon. A great afternoon and we were sooo close to breaking the Guinness World Record! Next year guys...!
Wow! Well done dancers! We have had an amazing set of exam results. 100% pass rate with 20+ Honours. Just fantastic!!
