It’s inevitable, then, that regular dance activity […]

Words of Praise
We really are great at what we do, but you don't have to take our word for it.
dancing at Karen Hardy Studios allows me the privacy and luxurious space I need for choreographing my shows and of course I love the gorgeous lounge bar for a glass of champagne when I need inspiration!
Yesterday was fabulous, you are a wonderful person full of vibrance and enthusiasm and you made us feel so comfortable, you know it felt like we were meeting an old friend (old as in not seen for a while…). Tracey was worried that her level of dancing would embarrass her but how you helped her through this and it is a long time since I have seen her laugh and enjoy herself so much – for those two hours we forgot everything that is going on in our lives.
Karen Hardy Studios is an absolute pleasure to work with. They are professional and quick to respond which, coupled with their expertise in the field, makes Quintessentially confident to recommend them to our most discerning members.
Gina Robinson, Quintessentially
We all had a great time and were overwhelmed by how you made us feel so welcome from the moment we arrived for practice. I especially wanted to say thank you for the little talk you had with Grace about her being so nervous. It really helped her to imagine those bullies on the front row like you said!
Strictly Come Dancing and other BBC entertainment shows regularly use Karen Hardy Studios. We find the facilities to be excellent for our needs and the ambience and creative vibe makes this a great place to work.
Ed Booth, BBC
Karen was very welcoming and gave us the opportunity to continually develop quickly throughout our lesson. I learnt more in the two hours with Karen than I have experienced in other short classes. I would recommend this experience to anyone with an interest in dance! Thank you Karen for a wonderful experience it was great fun (hopefully be back again one day).
