    Hi, Leighton, Her name is Mollie (Strogen) and my husband Tommy will be bringing her as I have to work unfortunately. I really hope she loves it, as it seems to be something she is very interested in, but at three… who knows how it will go!!!! If she has an interest, I might try her in gymnastics later as well, and that’s it!! No other extra curricular activities, lol!!! But really up to her in the end. Thank you so much, kind regards, Jacqui Strogen.

    Hi Leighton, Would you have room for a 4yr old on Saturday 1.15 in Ballina. Holly is 4 since December 17 and came to your class once last year but she was a bit young and the time did not work for us, think she is ready now?

    Just wondering could my daughter Maria try out ballet class on Saturday @ 1:15. Her friend also goes at this time.

    • Morrison School of Dance
      March 21, 2014

      Hi Maureen.
      Thanks for getting in touch.
      The children of the school are currently getting ready for their ballet show and exams there for it would be a bad time for anyone new to join, as they would feel left behind. Therefore i feel it would be best to wait until the new school year starts in September. I know that is a long way off. But in my experience, children that feel left behind do not stay and i am sure it would not be good for their confidence. Ballet encourages confidence when children are in the correct class.
      Please get back in touch in August to book a place for Maria. How old is she?
      Kind regarded
      Leighton Morrison

    Hi Leighton,
    Hope you had a good Summer. Quick question. Roisin was in your primary ballet class last year in swinford. Now due to my work she just came every second week for two terms and made all of term 3. Would she be better staying at that level or moving on. She’s 5, not turning 6 until January. Many thanks

      Hey Frances.
      We had a great summer, thanks for asking.
      Roisin will be fine to move up with the rest of her class. Her class will be at the same tome as last year, only a different grade. See you on Monday the 7th at 4pm
