"DanceEast has been a part of my life, as a member of Spin Off dance company, since the age of 16. I am now 36 and still enjoying it. I am a company rep and I also volunteer in two other classes every week.
I have made many new friends along the way and we always have so much fun. It has given me confidence to perform in front of an audience. The dancing has helped with my fitness and my health. I look forward to dancing every week and my enthusiasm has grown every year."
