"I first joined the Dance Depot when I was 11 years of age, taking classes in ballet, tap, jazz/commercial and musical theatre. When I was 14/15 Trish gave me the opportunity to help teach some of the younger classes. I loved every minute of my time at the Dance Depot and it inspired me to take up dancing as a career. With Trish's help and guidance I attended 2 professional dance colleges. Whenever I was feeling down or doubting myself I knew I could count on Trish to re-inspire me. In 2014 I graduated with my first professional dance job on board P&O's Oriana. Regardless whether you dance for a hobby or a career, it's a very rewarding thing to do. My dream started at the Dance Depot and Trish helped me along the way and for that I am truly grateful."
"I brought Kate to the Dance Depot Sept 2012 a quiet and shy 6 year old. December that year she was performing in front of an audience in the Christmas show. Kate loves her dancing and drama classes and has taken part in yearly competitions and taken recognised exams in ballet, tap and musical theatre. She has had some great opportunities including taking part in Strictlys Pasha show at St Helens Theatre. She has grown in confidence and is looking forward to her 4th Christmas show this year."
"My daughter Paige has been attending The Dance Depot for a number of years, she enjoys doing Tap & Ballet and has been entered for numerous exams which she really enjoys doing! She has made numerous friends and the staff are fabulous with the children. I would totally recommend this dance company to anyone"
"My son's been attending the Dance Depot for 5 years, since the age of 6, because he wanted to learn street dance! He absolutely loves it taking numerous exams and performing as a group at Southport Floral Hall, Aintree Racecourse, and most recently at St Helens Theatre Royal with Pasha Kovalev! He has competed both as a team member and on his own and won many awards! During the past 2 years he joined the drama/musical theatre group available and again took exams and performed at end of year shows which he loves! His confidence has grown tremendously which has helped him when he performed in school plays and recently played Simba in the 'Lion King'. Not only does my son dance and act, he now sings too thanks to Miss Trish bringing in a private tutor who gives one-to-one and group lessons! Miss Trish has a great relationship with all the kids and parents and is well known in the 'show business' world, and is always contacted by companies offering auditions in all areas which has been a great experience for my son who is learning more and more all the time! The Dance Depot is more than a Dance/Drama school, it is a family".
"Ellie has been a pupil at The Dance Depot now for 12 years. Miss Trish and her staff are qualified and professional and have given my daughter so many opportunities in a safe, friendly, fun and caring environment. She has performed onstage every year and has even performed with Pasha Kovalev, interviewed on Radio Merseyside, and attended filming of Alesha Dixons Street Dance Stars as well as many other showcasing events. She is entered for exams regularly and also competes in the IDTA dance competitions. I can't thank The Dance Depot enough for the confidence and discipline my daughter now has. And the numerous medals and trophies we are all so proud of!!!! "
