There are a number of choices when it comes to dance schools throughout HRM. While most offer recreational classes through to either competitive level or intensive training programs (ITP), the Leica Hardy School of Dance (LHSD) is the place to be for high quality, individual, professional and specialized dance instruction for all ages and abilities. We chose to join this school five years ago based on its reputation for technical excellence as it has successfully trained professional dancers to an advanced level within the Society of Russian Ballet syllabus using the Vaganova Method, which is highly recognized internationally by many dance companies. It is one of only two schools in HRM that specifically train dancers in this method and syllabus. Recently, my daughter had the opportunity to attend ballet classes in Australia involving the Vaganova Method and I can say with complete confidence that the dance training she received at LHSD was not only highly transferable but set her apart in terms of her strength and technical ability. You only have to read Leica Hardy's biography on the LHSD website to know that your child will receive excellence in dance instruction and similarly among her other faculty members within this school. We can't recommend it highly enough.

My daughters have been dancing here since they were three. The school is a positive, supportive, and non-competitive learning environment, with small class sizes for more individualized attention, and the teachers have a wealth of expertise and information to share. Whether it's taking recreational classes for fun, or furthering skill and training for professional dance careers, there is something for all levels and ages in this disciplined but fun environment. My daughters have had many opportunities to grow, perform, and strive for excellence, while also making life-long friends along the way.

My daughter has been dancing with Leica for three years. Leica's studio is a positive place, a community where dancers (and families) support one another. Leica has a high standard and her dancers strive for excellence. My daughter is a much more confident and graceful girl thanks to her studies at this studio. We appreciate the mentoring and friendships that Leica encourages between her senior dancers and the younger dancers.

My daughter has been dancing with Leica for the past five years. Not only has she become a beautiful dancer but she has developed a strong confidence and strength that she will benefit from her whole life. She has had opportunities to perform in a number of big stage productions and learn from a variety of fantastic choreographers. The role models continually remind the girls of their unlimited potential and the friendships that my daughter has formed will last a lifetime. Leica's school is a very positive, disciplined and fun place for any child. It's really a second family and home for my daughter.

My daughter started dancing here when she was four and hasn't looked back since. When we came to this school we were simply looking for dance classes, but we found so much more. We found a community of teachers, parents and children that feels like home. The teachers are passionate and give individual attention to each kid's personal growth while also looking out for group development. My daugher has made lifelong friends and the end of year recital is seriously one of my favourite days of the year. You won't find a better dance school in HRM!
