  • I have three daughters who are members of Leeming Danceworks Dance Studio in Orleans. All three love to dance and whether it be ballet, jazz or tap I have seen their technique improve each and every year. We would like to thank Sharon and her staff for a wonderful job that they do. We have been very happy with all aspects of Leeming from the dance education to the professionalism and experience of all the teachers. I would recommend Leeming Danceworks to all who want to participate in a wonderful dance experience.

  • I would like to thank Sharon Leeming and the other teachers at Leeming DanceWorks for inspiring my daughter to dance. She's had the privilege of taking ballet and jazz during the last 2 years. It has been a fantastic, fun learning experience. The teachers at Leeming have excellent teaching skills and explain everything with clarity. As a parent, I appreciate the fact that they always want the best for her and constantly challenge her. I would recommend this dance studio to anybody from beginner to experienced.
