Since my daughters have become dance students at the Moorland International Ballet Academy, I have noticed a vast difference in all their dancing abilities, motivation, confidence and their enthusiasm. It has been a pleasure to see and watch their progression. I put this down to the expertise training methods of all the teachers, and the happy surroundings that Moorland School brings to the students.

Moving our daughter to Moorland International Ballet Elite was the best decision we could have made. Simon and Lynsey Kidd are, without a doubt, two of the best classical ballet teachers I know. Their caring approach and continued support as well as the excellent ballet training has resulted in a happy confident young lady.

Throughout my training I have found both Lynsey and Simon to be fully supportive in all disciplines of my Ballet training. Not only have they guided me in my physical development, but also mentally too, helping me understand how to ‘think’ as a dancer and adapt my skills to different roles. They have tirelessly helped me to prepare for my career as a professional Ballerina.

There is not a single doubt in my mind that Simon and Lynsey are two of the best Ballet professionals that I have ever had the privilege to know, with classes superior than those you that you would find at even the best classical schools in the world. Their knowledge of the dance world is key to their training, as they know what is required to become professionals. I could never thank them enough for all that they have done for me.

Lynsey’s and Simon’s support and guidance before and during my time at The Royal Ballet Upper School was invaluable. The knowledge and expertise that they passed on to me gave me real confidence in my ability and this encouraged me to further my career. I just loved working with them as they always had so much to give.
