What people say about D&B

“D&B reinforced all the qualities we were trying to instil. Self belief, confidence, respect, discipline, teamwork and a very happy childhood”

Michelle Gummer | Mother

“Neve has been attending a variety of classes at D&B since the age of three, that’s over twelve years of excellent training with some of the best teachers in the business. D&B is her second family and she loves all of the friends that she has made over the years – they have common interests and goals and always support and encourage each other. Neve enjoys weekly classes in ballet, tap, modern, acting and private singing, but her Saturday combination class is her favourite. Here she is able to learn with friends, in a fun and exuberant atmosphere whilst honing her skills in all areas of theatre. The years of teaching have not only awarded her the necessary attributes to pursue a career in the arts but it has also given her life skills which are transferable to all walks of life, such as confidence, self-expression and creativity. We look forward to many more years of training, performances and friendships with the team at D&B”
