YOUR SAY

“Garden City Dance is the best dance studio in Toowoomba. It is so welcoming and has a friendly atmosphere. We have been at Garden City Dance for 3 years and my daughter loves going to Ballet every week. She can’t wait to see her friends and Miss Jacqui. I love how the principal owner takes every dance class and knows every child individualy. Miss Jacqui teaches the children outstanding technique but also a love for dance. I can not recommend a more wonderful dance studio.”
– Lee-Anne

“Both my daughter and I have always felt ‘important’ and ‘heard’ at Garden City Dance. Jacqui always has time for our queries or concerns, which is such a relief for a parent who knows very little about the technical side of dance! Jacqui is very friendly, professional and approachable at all times. She is supportive and encouraging, and has created a dancing environment where my daughter has been able to thrive. We love the ‘Boutique’ nature of Garden City Dance with it’s personal touches and attention to detail. We have loved watching our daughter grow and develop into a more confident dancer this year. We have also made many wonderful friends in this lovely dance community. Thank you Jacqui for such a positive and rewarding year, we look forward to many more years with you at Garden City Dance.”
– Michelle

“We looked for a small personalised dance school & are so happy with GCD. Jacqui is wonderful with her students…her dancers work hard, learn lots but above all…enjoy themselves.”
– Tamara

“I can’t say enough about how special my girls’ time at Garden City Dance has been so far. They have such fantastic memories and have gained a confidence that I hope they will carry forward into adult life. Thanks so much Jacqui for going above and beyond a normal teacher’s role and being an aspirational role model for my girls. They say it only takes one good teacher to change a child’s life and I now believe that to be true!!”
– Dina

“Garden City Dance is a nurturing community where our girls have grown and come out of their shells to become these happy, confident dancers who not only love ballet, but also the little family they have built among their peers/ co-dancers. Ms. Jacqui is a fantastic teacher, and what she has is more than just a dance studio; hers is a tribe of passionate ballerinas and supportive parents.”
