Jason Thomas Performing Arts

Mallets Ope, Victoria Square, Truro TR1 2RG, UK – 01872 276365

Excellent teachers, extensive opportunities to either enjoy as a hobby or to go on and build a career. Great range of dance classes. My daughter joined just over two years ago, in that time she has grown in confidence, her dancing has improved immensely and has loved every minute of being part of this fabulous dance school. The people and children are very welcoming and makes you feel that your part of a family. I cannot recommend this Performing Arts school highly enough, anybody who enjoys the performing arts in all its forms should definitely give this place a go.

My son has been going to Jason Thomas dance school for 4 years now and enjoys every second he is there ! It’s like being part of a family, the support the pupils show each other is second to none and the teachers are absolutely fantastic and so encouraging. The opportunity’s my son has had since being here are great and he keeps going from strength to strength. Through the teaching and support he has had from being here he has been accepted into Tring Park dance school at the ago of 10. I couldn’t be happier with the dance school the best decision I ever made was to send him to Jason’s Thomas performing arts school.
