Jo Cheeseman – Erin & Charlotte’s Mum

Rosy and her team are beyond the best! Due to their expert teaching, support and kindness my two girls have achieved much more than passing exams. They have gained so much confidence, made friends for life and become part of the RTAD family.

It’s 7 years and counting!

Meheen Dalamal – Samara Dalamal’s Mum

My daughter has been a regular Rosy Thompson-er for 3 years now and they are all like a second family to her!  Not only is the teaching absolutely superb, the girls have the time of their life and develop a real sense of belonging to the Academy.

We can’t wait for her younger sister to join.

Charlie Henderson – India & Bella’s Mum

We cannot thank you enough for the tools that you have given both our children, not only teaching and guiding them to such a high standard in all their classes; MT, Singing, Modern Jazz, Street and Tap but in doing so creating such a wonderful environment for the girls to learn, perform, build confidence and thus thrive and shine on stage.  

 The lessons they learn in classes and on stage are life long lessons and cannot be attained everywhere.

You give the children a purpose for their hard work and they all stand up on that stage in June for the Summer Show and perform with excitement, confidence and a sense of pride of belonging to a greater team, which is a fantastic achievement with so many pupils of varying ages.

Your team’s level of commitment is unfaltering and adaptable whatever the circumstances, you always forge on persevering and surprise us parents in your never ending dedication and devotion and I have often said, “thank goodness for Miss Rosy and her remarkable team”

We really cannot thank you enough and even more so recently being able to offer Zoom classes at home to just keep us all that little bit more sane during confinement!

Kanika Sanger – Inaaya Sanger’s Mum

It’s about so much more than just dancing!! Inaaya has been coming since she was 3 and she is now 6 1/2. She absolutely adores it, as do I. Inaaya was very quiet and shy in certain circumstances and Miss Rosy’s has helped her grow and develop in so many ways.

Her confidence in making friendships, her focus and attention, her courage when it comes to the shows, her dancing of course and her belief in herself that she can make anything possible. It is like a life skills school that does ballet!!!! Each and every class is so unique and meticulously planned. The end of year summer production is so professionally executed and hence is on par with any West End production. I cannot recommend it highly enough. A huge thank you to Miss Rosy and all the teachers for creating such an amazing environment and being such a positive influence on Inaayas’s life.

Sahara Reith – Pupil

RTAD teachers are dedicated and kind, always focused and always fun. RTAD has encouraged me to be the best performer I can be. Classes have taught me to dance, sing and act. I have built stamina, poise, musicality, perseverance and grown in confidence. I have made lifelong friends.

My success is everyone’s success and anyone’s hitch is just a step to work harder together. I love being part of the RTAD family.

Ruth – Lauren Askerkoff’s Nanny

I’m a North West London nanny with a 12 year old charge that attends several of Rosy Thompson’s classes.  The highlight of June for us both is the Summer Show, where I help out backstage each year.  I’m always so impressed by the young performers.

 It’s so much fun, the quality of the production is just outstanding – and this is made possible by the enthusiasm and expertise of Rosy and her team. A total joy to be involved in.

Arti Khanna – Amaira and Sairah’s Mum

My daughter Amaira joined the Rosy Thompson Academy of Dance when she was in Year 1 and was only 5 years old. She started with Ballet lessons. Miss Rosy’s classes were the highlight of her week and she enjoyed them so much.

 I am so grateful to the amazing academy to instil this passion for dance and musical theatre. My shy daughter came out of her shell and now thrives on performing and being on stage. It has really boosted her confidence. We admire the teams professionalism and dedication to bring out the best in kids. Along with the fun of learning children also sit grade exams/LAMDA which I feel will always be an asset to them. My younger daughter also does private singing lessons and musical theatre. There are so many varied choices/styles for children to learn in this academy. We are so proud of all the teachers part of this team who are like family to us over the years. Well done to the BEST academy !!

Ellen Lee – Mabel Lee’s Mum

Miss Rosy and her amazing team of teachers are passionate, caring and inspiring. My daughter loves the classes very much, and I am pleased to see her progress and development. I highly recommend the Rosy Thompson Academy of Dance.

Philippa Boag-Sharland – Lily’s Mum

The Rosy Thompson Academy Dance embodies the joy of dance & musical theatre. The quality of teaching is exemplary and with that brings confidence to its pupils, a willingness to take measured risks and an overall love of movement.

RTAD adapted to online teaching during lockdown with true grace & positivity. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it to friends.

Karin Thyselius – professional opera singer & founder of NW8-mums

My daughter started doing a week long school holiday workshop with RTAD when she was 5 years old (and she just turned 11). She loved it so much I had to book her in for more workshops immediately. From those holiday workshops…

She quickly (on her own accord) started doing musical theatre, ballet, tap, street jazz and drama.

As a professional opera singer, I have been extremely impressed not just with Miss Rosy, but with all her team. The company and classes are run in a very professional way which also makes it run in a safe way. I am looking at it with my professional hat on.

The end of year big show has gone from strength to strength every year and I keep thinking it couldn’t possibly get any better, yet the following year, I am even more impressed.

Yet, what impresses me most and what I believe is fundamental for children when they are young is that the way RTAD is run makes it feel like such a special community. The love, dedication and energy combined with their professionalism (all teachers are working in the musical theatre industry) that Miss Rosy and all the teachers give to the children, is very special. It really feels like a family.

And ultimately, I believe this is not just what makes them so successful, but it is what brings the children so much joy and fun regardless of which RTAD class they do. This in turn will help with their confidence regardless of whether they end up taking their performing to a different (and potentially professional) level or helping them with school or job interviews when they are older.

The way my own daughter has progressed both in confidence and her dance technique is testament to all they do. I cannot recommend RTAD enough!
