Elle Locke (student)  “As a formal pupil of Nicola Miles Theatre Studios I can highly recommend the incredible standard of training that I received from Miss Nicola and her teaching faculty.  I joined at the age of five and had many opportunities to perform.  My time at the studios was fun and very rewarding. Due to my early dance training I was able to take a three year Musical Theatre Degree at a London Studio Centre and am now pursuing my dream career in musical theatre”.

“Both my daughters have had the privilege of learning to sing and dance at Nicola Miles. They’ve had brilliant experiences performing in shows, festivals and pantomimes, made lots of friends and learned skills for life. The girls achieved top grades in Ballet, Tap and Modern up to Advanced level. My elder is now studying for a BA in Professional acting at The Drama Studio and spent her Summer at the National youth theatre. My younger is still enjoying singing lessons and loves musical theatre. Nicola Miles has been brilliant!

Kristen Deeley

“I trained at Nicola Miles Theatre Studios from the age of 3-17. I can honestly say, it was the best time of my life. I learnt skills that have stayed with me and helped me immensely in my chosen career path. Confidence, sharing, independence, working as a team, the importance of learning from mistakes, the joy of movement and music, collaboration.  The opportunities I had were incredible and the memories will be ones that I know will be some of my most powerful.
Now I have a daughter of my own, and she attends Nicola Miles also. Her first little gems sessions were with Miss Nicola, which is has been amazing for me to see someone who instilled so much learning and guidance for me, now providing the same for my daughter.  A beautiful, nurturing school that I would highly recommend.”

My children have been at NMTS since they were under 3. 
They both love to dance and have good friendships with other children at the dance school. 
There are a variety of classes available including modern, tap and ballet (RAD) and the quality of teaching is high which culminates in excellent exam results. 
Both exams and festivals (competitions) are optional.
Chloe has just been accepted to train with the Canadian Youth Ballet

My daughter attends this dance school and loves it.  All the teachers are highly qualified and encourage the children to learn the discipline and skills needs to dance well in a fun and inclusive way.
The school offers ballet, tap and modern classes from 3 upwards.  The school also enters festivals and children have the chance to enter individual and group classes.
