VTS is a school for both those looking for serious training to progress to vocational college and those who enjoy dance and want to have fantastic opportunities.

My daughter has been with Claire since she was 5 and has had great training and amazing opportunities to perform.

I would recommend VTS to anyone that is looking for a school that nurtures and feels like a real family.

My daughter has been a student at Valentine Theatre School for 6 months. During this period she has been given excellent tuition to help to improve her technique, balance and physical health. I would recommend this school to any parent who is considering a dance school for their child.
