“Would highly recommend Ardour Academy – both for the venue and location, the way that it is managed, and the classes that they hold. I am currently doing the bellydance classes and absolutely loving them! It’s a class of all different ages and abilities, and it’s great fun with a friendly atmosphere. The teacher is really nice and explains and demonstrates everything really well. I would recommend these classes to anyone – whether you are a dancer or non-dancer. It’s also a great workout!” – Tracey, on belly dancing class
