What They’re Saying
I have been dancing from a very young age and absolutely adore it ! Many people under estimate what dance is ! Many think it’s just ballet 🩰 it’s more than that, it’s something that can take you into your own world and take a step out of your comfort zone!!! I would love to say a huge thank you to all the amazing teachers at emjay who have always pushed me the extra step further and made many of us the dancers we are today 🩰🤍x

Hi, my name is Annabelle Rock, I’m 11 years old and have been dancing at Emjay since I was 3. It’s like one big happy family. The teachers are all so kind and encouraging and dancing has made me more confident as a person. There are so many genres of dance to choose from as well as performance and musical theatre classes. I particularly love show time, it’s so much fun 🤩Annabelle Rock

I absolutely love emjay and how they have helped me grow not just as a dancer but also as a person, I have learnt extreme amounts that I never thought I’d be able to complete but they have always believed in everyone and that’s what makes the dance school so special!! Every teacher is so hard working and professional they encourage you to be your best and to believe in yourself!! Everyone at emjay are like one big family so close and always caring to be able to join Emjay and be a part of that is amazing and I miss seeing everyone and I can’t wait to go back hopefully soon!!
47 years of love and nurturing. Learning to dance and being part of the family that is Emjay, not only produces amazing talent but, really does set people up for life in whatever career they choose. Emjay is a place where young people can learn dance, life skills, make friends and, above all, it is a place where every child is welcome and offered the same opportunities no matter their ability. It's a safe haven for those young people unable to find a place to fit in within their school or peer group.
