Here's what people are saying about Louise's ballet classes and retreats...

"Discovering a former Royal Ballet/English National Ballet dancer in Louise Bracey felt like flying to the moon, going into orbit.  What a most extraordinary privilege.  I could not believe it.  When I first entered class one memorable day last Autumn I was struck by Louise's warmth, open personality, quirky humour and lively, yet grounded approach.  In addition, the studio seemed huge and wonderful.  I have spent a year going twice a week from Bath to Bristol, using train and bus, attending all classes with much joy.  The whole atmosphere, the teaching, the choreography, everything is just a complete one off, even the privilege of watching Louise move.  It's just all very special indeed and I feel convinced that I could attend many classes and never repeat this opportunity in life.  My self esteem has gone up; I feel like I am improving slowly; even my posture is changing.  I am in love with all the cues and all the details and artistic design that class brings. It's fun too and we have whacky moments.  And we all go for lunch afterwards.  People of all levels attend and there is a very loyal following".

Having started ballet with Louise a year ago from a zero level of knowledge, I can say that her Friday classes have exceeded all my expectations. The pre-class has been of great benefit in helping me to learn the basics and by attending this and the general class I have come to really enjoy ballet and made some good friends. Louise has the unique ability to teach combining the skills of a clearly accomplished professional dancer with a light hearted and encouraging approach so appreciated by the group. There is a wonderful atmosphere to her classes and events. She is an exemplary instructor and a great sociable person - dedicated, encouraging and FUN!
