Dear Miss T,
Thank you so much for the past 7 years! You have helped me so much from improving my technique (and my horrible turned in feet) to my performance which I definitely wouldn't have if you hadn't encouraged me to do as many festivals 
as I have done! I've had so many amazing opportunities throughout my time at Allenova and I will never forget how much time and effort you (and all the other teachers) have put into making me the dancer I am today!  
Lots of love Elle - (Offered place at Tring Sept 2017)
