"Miss Leané has been teaching ballet to our daughters for the past 5 years. Her teaching style is the perfect blend of devotion to her art, a genuine affection for her students and an enthusiastic but disciplined approach to teaching both dance skills and theory. Our daughters love ballet and we know that it is Miss Leané’s teaching that has fostered this love and keeps them coming back year after year.We highly recommend Miss Leane to anyone who wants to see their children develop not only dance skills, but also confidence and a passion for dance that I have not witnessed at other dance schools".

"My daughters have both had the privilege of having Miss Leané as their teacher, from the tender age of 18 months. Miss Leané has the innate ability to connect with her students in a very special way. She has guided and encouraged my eldest daughter to fly and spread her wings, for which we will be forever grateful.
Miss Leané provides the perfect mix of fun, discipline and love, something that can be hard to find. This is why after almost 4 years we travel 35mins to her!".

"Miss Leané is a very kind and flexible teacher. She is a great ballerina and will be able to give you amazing training. She makes me feel like I don't have to be scared if I get something wrong. I enjoy ballet because Miss Leané makes it a fun and happy environment, and I would highly recommend her to anyone wanting to learn dance".

"Leané has a special way with students - she is gentle and nurturing, while firm - and knows how to work with each individual child. I love the relaxed environment that her classes provide, and the kids always have fun.
She has been an incredibly positive influence in my child's life in the 5 years we have been attending her classes. She has helped her build confidence in her physical abilities, and encouraged the growth of patience and resilience through the development of skills. My daughter really enjoys dancing because of Ms Leané. I highly recommend her classes".
- Gillian (Frankie's mum)
"We have been very lucky to have Miss Leané teach our children ballet for over 6 years now. I can honestly say that Leané is the key reason our daughter has stuck with ballet class, despite her performance anxiety and general shyness. Leané brings out the best in every one of her students and the bond she shares with them all is absolutely beautiful. You can see how much she genuinely cares for them and goes above and beyond to help them develop their skills and overcome any challenges. She is no pushover though, and maintains a great level of respect and discipline in her classes as well, but in a very gentle and fair way. We now have our younger daughter doing ballet class with Leané, and she is flourishing and enjoying learning the correct techniques in a very fun and encouraging environment. We are so fortunate that we stepped in to Miss Leané’s class all those years ago!"
