Kathryn Baker, Student at TKFDA 2009-2016 - August 2016
Where do I start? First of all I should say what an amazing school you have founded it was one of the best decisions I ever made to start dancing at TKFDA. You have raised my confidence so much since that first Saturday morning ballet class! Without that I would never have been able to truly perform!
Thank you for providing some of the best experiences of my life; dancing with Pasha and performing on a West End stage were and still are some of my favourite memories.
I can't wait to watch the next Wyvern show!

Dear Miss Kirsty, Miss Hannah, Miss Lauren, Miss Michelle,
Words cannot express how thankful I am to all of you fall that you have done over my time here. I have never known a group of people that are so friendly and care so much about each and every one of their students. Thank you for welcoming me with open arms and continually supporting me in every part of my life, not just dancing but academically as well. I think that is what makes this school so special and what attracts people, it is the genuine love and support no matter who you are. Please never lose this quality, it has helped so many people to regain hope in dancing.
Thank you for allowing me to become a better dancer and a better person, I would not be the person I am today without the impact that you have made on my life. Thank you for always greeting me with a smile, no matter how you are feeling, if you have had a tricky class beforehand you were always happy to see me and it has brightened up my day so many times. You always believe in everyone and strive to make them better dancers regardless of who they are, you all have such incredible patience and it makes such a difference to the atmosphere that is created. It is one of family and friendship there are no judgements and for me personally I feel like I can truly be myself which is something I find hard to do.
Thank you for all the hard work that you put in behind classes, the choreography, costumes, music, everything. I know that often is it not noticed or recognised but from the bottom of my heart THANK YOU! Thank you for changing my perception about dancing and instilling a passion for this beautiful art that will last for the rest of my life. All of you are such inspirations not only to me but the rest of the students and every day we look to you as role models, as dancers and in life. I will remember this place forever and the impact it has made on my life and how it has shaped me into the person I am today. I know I will always be welcome.
TKFDA is such a special dancing school and I hope that it grows beyond your expectations, you deserve it. I feel honoured to be a part of this special family and I thank you so much for everything it has given me. I promise this is not goodbye, this is see you soon.
All my love always,
