    Deborah Thomson School of Dance has been my home for almost 18 years. I have been here for most of my life and all of my favourite memories have been made with this team that I have grown up with. This studio has taught me the most precious life lessons. Since day one Miss. Debbie has kept me growing and determined. She has taught me to reach for the stars and then 10 times further, as well as there is never anything you can't do. Debbie cares about every child like her own and she wants each of them to reach their highest potential across all genres. DTSOD is home to so many people and Deborah Thomson herself has changed the lives of so many over the last 30 years. This studio is where family begins.

    Deborah Thomson School of Dance has given my daughter the training and perseverance needed to be successful in everything that she does. The dance instructors were always cheerful, energetic, and encouraging; while providing their students with strong stylistic backgrounds in all areas of dance. Deborah Thomson School of Dance has been, and always will be a family oriented atmosphere.

    DTSOD for over a decade.

         My family has been at DTSOD for almost 15 years and they have loved every moment. I started them off slowly with only 1 class each but before you knew it they wanted to take more classes and were accepted to the competitive team! The dance teachers are wonderful and treat them like their own children. They are very friendly and patient with them! They have turned them into beautiful dancers and it is an absolute joy to see them perform on stage!!! They have been the #1 studio at several competitions! The kids are absolutely bored when they are not there. Thank you DTSOD for always being there for them, giving them the confidence to express themselves freely & turning them into little STARS!

         My daughter has been dancing at Deborah Thomson School Of Dance for 8 years now. She started off as a shy girl, but that didn't last long with the help of the friendly and comforting dance teachers. This dance school is like one big family with all the kids that run and greet each other at EVERY dance class as though they haven't seen each other for years! Every year I wonder what dance routine will they do now thinking I've seen it all, but every year I get surprised at the GREAT routines they do. I just want to thank all the teachers at DTSOD for all the hard work you put in year after year and for helping our kids to be the best dancers that they can be! Go team!

    My granddaughter has been with the Deborah Thomson School of Dance for over a decade.

    Studying the many different dancing styles offered, growing from a recreational student to an award-winning competitive dancer. Over the years, she has made lasting friendships and strong bonds with the other dancers and teachers. There is always a jovial and encouraging atmosphere back stage and in the classrooms. Along with the other parents, I am glad there is a dance studio that teaches proper technique while allowing the children to still have fun.

    When I first heard that my son could be taking dance lessons, I got very excited. He was always dancing around with me and seemed to love music! A friend from work told me about Deborah Thomson School of Dance. They said that there was always a need for boys in dance. We never looked back since! Our lives became filled with lessons, amazing recitals, wonderful new friendships and weekend trips out of town for competitions. The teachers are all positive influences in my son’s life. I have watched many children grow over the past 10 years, and they have accomplished many goals. The one thing that relates all of them is that they all have the one common JOY OF DANCE! Thank you DTSOD & Staff for the years of providing dance happiness for our kids

    I have been attending the Deborah Thomson school of Dance since the age of 4. I have spent countless hours with the students and staff there which I now am so proud to call my family. As someone who struggled with confidence Miss Debbie and her staff brought out my passion in something that I could excel in and feel proud of. Throughout the many years I have spent at the Deborah Thomson School of Dance I have created bonds with the students and staff there that will last me a lifetime. The staff are patient and always pushing us to do our best! Not only did I gain exceptional lessons in dance and really watched myself grow there, I also became a part of something even better than that which is a dance family! I will forever be grateful for everything the studio has done for me!

    My daughter has been dancing at Deborah Thomson School of Dance for just over 5 years, Since she joined the studio she has not only just received exceptional dance instruction but a dance family for life!! I have three daughters that have all attended dance classes at different studios over the past 21 years in Brampton and I can honestly say with my hand on my heart DTSOD is the most amazing studio, Such amazing Staff that really put your child’s needs as a priority, so much team spirit it truly feels like a family!! My daughter wouldn’t dream of dancing anywhere else and she has gained so much confidence since attending the studio and friends and teachers that she is very close to. We are Both so proud of the amazing dancer she has become, she has danced since she was 5 and is now 15, but I honestly feel she became a true talented dancer since going to DTSOD, She has learnt to dance on a completely different level, true professionalism!!

    Throughout your life, you have the gift of meeting new people, learning new hobbies and mastering difficult skills, but to me, the greatest gift of all was dance. Dancing at Deborah Thomson School of Dance has taught me more than I could have ever have imagined. Not only has it built my dance knowledge from the ground up, but it also taught me how to be a better person. DTSOD has equipped me with various leadership, collaboration, and responsibility skills that helped shape me into who I am outside of the studio. Growing up, the kind, nurturing, and safe environment of DTSOD allowed for me to reach my fullest potential and make memories to last a lifetime. I quickly found myself to be more comfortable, feel accepted and also uplifted by everyone around me. Along with the extraordinary staff and teachers at DTSOD, the other students quickly became my friends for life. Our ability to work together and face the toughest of times is what gives this team a special place in my heart. This team is truly like no other and I would not have changed one bit of my experience in these last 10 years for the world.

    Deborah Thomson School of Dance      I have been in attendance at this dance studio since it first opened. Back then I was a 10 year girl and the lessons that I learned were ones that lasted me a life time. Not only was dance a place where I was able get healthy and move, but it gave me confidence to  showcase myself as a person. I feel more strongly about this today! I am now a mother of a 6 year girl who is very shy and has had trouble coming our of her shell. It has been through the guidance of Deborah Thomson and her team, that my daughter has been able to get up on stage and showcase her talent. Deborah Thomson School of Dance is and has always been and positive, inclusive, healthy environment where kids of all ages are able to be themselves, have fun, be healthy and learn to dance!!!
