Deborah Thomson School of Dance!
For those of you who are unfamiliar with me and my studio and are looking for a dynamic dance studio for your child, please let me introduce myself.
My name is Deborah Thomson. I have personally been involved in competitive and recreational dance since the age of 5. I am a licensed teacher/choreographer and member of the British Association of Dancing (B.A.T.D), Dance Masters of America (D.M.A) and Royal Academy of Dance (R.A.D). I have also had the opportunity of judging both Regional and National Dance Championships.

The studio will be closed the following dates:
Christmas/New Years Break.
Good Friday & Easter Sunday.
Families are invited to come in and view their child’s classes in December. Dates will be provided and posted once finalized. This applies to recreational and ballet classes only.
Every student will need to purchase a costume for the year end recital for every dance routine they are in. The first payable costume deposit is at registration and the second in January. Any additional costs for competitive costumes will be communicated with the parents and are due before competition.
