Paige Murray – Dancer in our student class

“I’ve been a pupil at SK Dance Studio since the age of two. I learned and loved everything about it, and gradually became more and more immersed in the world of dance.

The classes are thoroughly enjoyable and I have enjoyed every part of my dancing experience from the exams, that have been a lot of hard work but in the end very rewarding, to the best part, the dancing school shows.

I have performed at many fantastic places with SK Dance Studio over the years, such as the Liverpool Empire, Blackpool Opera House and my ultimate favourite – Disneyland Paris.

I love every minute spent in the dance studio and have many cherished memories of the school from the past 17 years.

Susan has shown me the magic of performing and that with passion and practice you can achieve anything you set out to do.

Her influence on my life has been immeasurable, and I can’t thank her and the rest of the team enough for what they have done for me. They’ve been like a second family!”.


Lorraine Tomlinson and her dancer daughter Abby

“My daughter has danced with SK Dance Studio for 13 years and I’ve seen her grow from a cute little girl standing on stage at the Palace Theatre in Manchester to a graceful dancer who has just completed her Grade 5 ballet exam and Silver tap. Susan and her assistant teachers always put the girls first and help them achieve their full potential.

The shows are always stunningly professional and its great to see a dance school where the teacher doesn’t come on the stage to help the youngest members – they do it all by themselves and love every minute of it, which goes to prove how well they are taught.

My daughter has enjoyed her time so much with Susan that she too wants to pursue a career as a dance teacher. This is very much a family run school and you can be sure of a warm welcome” – Lorraine.

“I’ve been dancing at SK Dance Studio since the age of 3 and 13 years on, I still love it. Susan is a great teacher and individual.

The rest of the teaching staff are equally as good. It’s a great all round experience and I love it – I’ve never even thought about leaving!” – Abby.

Andreah Doherty – ex Student and Adult Dancer

“For as long as I can remember I have always loved to dance. I was thrilled when I went to SK Dance aged 5 and started to learn all sorts of new styles. As we progressed up the school we took exams, had presentation evenings and performed in whole school shows.

When I was 8 we performed The Tales of Beatrix Potter in a variety show called ‘Hits of Great Musicals’ at The Opera House Theatre, Blackpool Winter Gardens.

It was a magical experience to perform on a huge stage in front of an enormous audience.

I went on to perform with SK Dance at the Liverpool Empire, Manchester Palace and even at Disneyland Paris. We went on trips to the theatre to see Ballets such as Coppelia, and then learned to dance the parts at summer school.

SK Dance has such a family feel, everyone is supportive of one another and we have great fun. I still dance twice a week, in the adult ballet and tap classes”.
