"Ridiculously great fun! Lara gave us such a wide range of options for our birthday gathering, and every question we had about the arrangements was answered fully. A very professional service and a crazily hilarious party session!
I thoroughly recommend Lara as a teacher and as a business in whole. Two of my friends have booked her for their parties at the end of today`s session which only goes to show how happy we are! Thankyou, Lara!"

"My hen party was utterly FABULOUS and it was all thanks to Lara!  She is professional, witty, stylish and a wonderful dancer/choreographer who inspired us all.  I asked to learn a dance to a song from the film 'Cabaret' and Lara came up with a great routine that was sexy, exciting and yet accessible for all twenty of us. I would definitely recommend a lesson with Lara for the ultimate in hen night fun.  Thank you so much for making my evening so memorable and enjoyable!
We're booking tickets to your show!"

"I just wanted to say a huge thank you on behalf of Laura and all the girls for Saturdays dance class. It was the perfect way to spend the afternoon, there was the right amount of dancing, having fun, drinking and cheesecakes. The rest of the day/evening went without a hitch. I will certainly be recommending you to friends and we are in the process of booking tickets for the October show.
Thank you once again."

"We had such fun learning a romantic dance routine for our special day. Lara made the whole experience so entertaining whilst she put up with four left feet, and two hopeless, non-rhythmic students!
I would recommend this package to anyone who is looking for that special little touch for their big day. Thankyou so much!"

"Our guests were thrilled when Jon and I broke into such a wild and crazy disco duet for our first dance! There were tears of joy and laughter all around, and we loved every single minute from first lesson to
performing our top-secret routine at the reception."

"Having been to numerous Chiropracters, Physiotherapists, etc., and having spent an absolute fortune on both, I wish I had known you years earlier! Your care and tuition has made such a difference in my daily life, and I now have far more mobility and strength than I ever dared hope for my future.  Thankyou from the bottom of my heart for all your help and time. You truly are a wonderful teacher!"

I have had a broken bone in my spine now for 15+ years and have been attending the Pilates class for over  7 years.
When I begun I had very limited movement and flexibility, now I am achieving movements I didn't think were possible.
Lara is not an instructor, she's a teacher. She sets a relaxed atmosphere and a welcoming environment that suits all ages and abilities. She has tailored a routine for my needs and regularly shows me how to develop moves to ensure I improve.
Unlike other classes I have experienced, Lara has taken the time to understand my condition and ability.
She has taught me how to strengthen and improve flexibility. Also she has shown me moves that help deal with my pain. She has taught me skills that I can use throughout my life to cope with my condition.
Looking back I can't believe howmuch progress I have made and how simple Lara has made it. I can only thank Lara for all her guidance and support over the past few years.
It is a wonderful,fun and friendly class that accepts all abilities.

I have attended numerous fitness classes over the years, but have never found anyone so in touch with her clients needs than Lara! Her knowledge of injuries or illness is phenomenal, and she remembers each and every problem that a client has in her class(es). Never before have I found a fitness teacher who will take so much care and time within each class, and what is also very pleasing is that Lara remembers all her pupils by name rather than just "pound signs coming through the door" - a personal touch!
I cannot recommend Lara`s classes enough!
