I can’t thank Yvonne enough with all that she has taught me.
Yvonne’s vast knowledge and experience enables her to bring out the best in you with new challenges and drawing out your own experiences as a teacher and a performer to be confident to use your own ideas with your own students. Having private lessons have made me feel very relaxed and always feeling encouraged and inspired. Yvonne’s training always come with a passion and dedication giving you the confidence to put all your ideas into practise , so when entering the exam room you are fully prepared.

A wonderful teacher who any aspiring teacher would be lucky to have as their tutor!

Fantastic Dance School!

Nov 07, 2018 by Laura Tattersall

My daughter has been dancing at Taylor School of Dancing for the past five years and absolutely loves it.

Mandy and Yvonne, who are totally dedicated to the teaching of Dance, have given her the chance to learn so many fun routines, pass her ISTD exams confidently, and be part of many fun evenings of competitions, professional demonstrations and summer shows.

Thank you so much!


Fun, friendship and fitness!

Nov 07, 2018 by Mel Calam

Dancing, or even the thought of it has always been a big nemesis to me so to find myself enrolling in a 10 week beginners course to learn Ballroom/ Latin American dancing last January was somewhat of an enigma/surprise to me. I am SO glad I did though. It has been the best 11 months, We have so much fun and many laughs and new,great friendships are forming along the way.
The group of people that mostly declared they had 2 left feet when they first arrived seemed have grown a right foot in place of one of the left ones as we are getting to grips with new dances and adding on to the basics quite nicely. Yvonne and Mandy are great teachers and have made Monday nights something to really look forward to.
Thankyou ladies. I highly recommend taking up dancing at any age.


The best thing about Mondays

Nov 07, 2018 by Tricia and Julian

We joined the beginners ballroom class nearly a year ago and can honestly say we love each and every lesson. Our classmates are a great group and Yvonne, Mandy and Lesley make the lessons fun with expert guidance and endless patience, meaning we always look forward to Monday nights.


Well done, and thank you!

To say my husband was a reluctant recruit to the world of ballroom dancing is an understatement. However, he has rarely missed a class over the last two years (not because I am bossy) and even quite enjoys it, thanks to Yvonne and Mandy's expert and cheerful tuition. Well done, and thank you! I never, ever thought he would last this long.


Zoe has learnt skills that will stay with her for life

Feb 26, 2013 by Eleonor

Zoe has been part of the Taylor Hill School of Dance since she was 4. Mandy and Yvonne have been an important part of her childhood and her teenage years, setting very high standards, having the highest expectations and nurturing Zoe’s love of dance. As a result, Zoe has learnt skills that will stay with her for life: through competitions she has learnt to be confident, persistent and resilient; through the team projects she has learnt to take account of the needs and feelings of others and to work collaboratively; through being an active member of the school she has learnt the importance of commitment and loyalty.

Now 18, Zoe is preparing for the next stage in her life. She is sad to be leaving Mandy, Yvonne and her dancing friends but the happy memories will stay with her. When choosing a degree course, she knew that she still wanted to learn more about dance and has chosen to study for a BA (Hons) in Dance Theatre at Trinity Laban. And to think it all started when she was 4… thank you!


We can’t believe how quick we seem to be progressing...

Feb 26, 2013 by Robert and Vanessa SK

My wife and I have wanted to attend dance classes for ages but never got round to it. We found the details for Yvonne's classes on line and thought the web site looked professional so took the plunge to make contact. I spoke to Yvonne and was reassured about the class and the fact that I would actually get to dance with my wife, which was very important for me so the registration forms went in straight away.

The classes have been great and although beginners we already have a number of steps in our repertoire and we both really look forward to our weekly class. The structure of the class and the way in which Yvonne teaches has been superb. We can’t believe how quick we seem to be progressing and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the class to any of our friends.

We are looking forward to learning more moves over the coming weeks and to showing our friends our fancy new footwork over the summer season of school balls and events!


We so enjoy our Latin and Ballroom dancing lessons

We so enjoy our Latin and Ballroom dancing lessons! The teaching is really great - every lesson is so much fun - and not only that we can now actually dance!


We "Keep Dancing"every week now with real enjoyment.

Feb 26, 2013 by Guy and Morna

We started dancing 2 years ago with the intention of learning a new skill in a friendly atmosphere. Yvonne and Mandy have guided and encouraged us from tentative first steps to increasing confidence in many varied dances. We "Keep Dancing"every week now with real enjoyment. Thank you.


Thanks so much to both of you

We have been having lessons with Yvonne and Mandy for the past year and we would like to say how much we have learnt and what fun we have had, starting from a basis of last having any dancing lessons at school (too many years ago to count).

Yvonne and Mandy have been so patient in the lessons and more than willing to repeat instructions until all of the class has grasped the idea. With the constant repetition over many weeks suddenly we find ourselves remembering the steps! They both are able to deal with a great age range from the thirties to the seventies and making us all feel capable of expanding our horizons.

We started the classes to get some exercise, but we have benefited so much more, from laughter, a sense of commitment and the pride in having achieved something new, especially at our age, not to mention some very sociable meals!

Thanks so much to both of you.
