After leaving Elite in 2018, Laney went on went to Wilkes Academy of Performing Arts in Swindon to start a 3-year performing arts course.
"I danced for 11 years at Elite & honestly have never loved anything so much! I improved so much due to the teachers that have helped me. I couldn't thank them all enough. Elite are my second family & wouldn't change any of them for the world!! Everyone is so kind and caring, I love it!
The person I wanna give a massive thankyou to is Miss Hayley for always believing in me & always helping me in classes:) Literally couldn't thank you enough!! The opportunities you've given me, like going to competitions, is amazing. Thank you so much!"
We're delighted to have been able to play such a key part in your dance story, Laney, and we know you'll make a success of your studies.

Hannah graduated from Elite in 2018, and is currently a student at DanceBox Studio & Theatre, Milton Keynes.
"I've thoroughly enjoyed my first few months at Dancebox. The training is very intense, and you definitely have to push yourself in every lesson. The teachers are so enthusiastic, which helps me to keep going when it gets really tough - but I wouldn't swap it for anything.
Dancing every day is the dream, and I'm loving every second of it!
We have ballet & jazz every day, which I feel has already improved my technique. Every lesson just makes me more determined to get better and progress in my training. I can't wait to see what happens after this!"
