“My daughter attended the summer school this year was greeted with smiles and enthusiasm and has had an absolute blast all week. Learning some brilliant moves and meeting some fantastic people. She’d come home every night tired but full of fire and it finished with a really welcoming community event with delicious foods, storytelling and the kids showcasing their works! awesome! looking forward to seeing her perform alongside this amazing project tomorrow at the Merchant City Festival
