My daughter loves her ballet lessons at CM Southampton Dance Academy. Ana has special needs and Chrissy has been welcoming and inclusive since the very first day. Both her and Miss Gemma are kind and firm at the same time, just what my daughter needs. They make the children learn and enjoy and they are always atterntive and available to us as parents. I would definitely recommend them.

I love Chrissy's Pilates classes, she brings a real individual focus to her class with expert knowledge on Pilates. Meaning the class is accessible to all with a relaxed yet very beneficial result - highly recommended.

A fantastic dance teacher. Care and sensitivity to individual needs of every child. Keeps the classes fun but when the are ready, she will challenge them and help them reach their potential. Our daughter was so proud when she passed her ballet exam, and it wouldn't have happened with out Chrissy's encouragement and skill. Our son skips and dances his way, to and from, her classes. He loves them, and her! Incredibly good value for money too. I couldn't recommend her highly enough.

I recently started going to both the adult ballet and tap classes at CM Dance. Every week we have a great laugh, whilst at the same time learning new dance techniques or practising old ones. I previously had no experience in either ballet or tap but Chrissy is brilliant at tailoring the class for both newbies like me and others who have been dancing for some time. Would thoroughly recommend giving it a try.

Chrissy is so relaxed and happy. She brings out the best in her dancers. You can tell when you see the children coming out that they have had fun. Would recommend her school of dance to anyone.

My two daughters, Alice and Olivia, have been dancing with CM Dance for many years now. Chrissy has a way of getting the most out of every child and goes that extra mile to make her sessions fun and energetic. My eldest child is quite sensitive and would have struggled to learn in a traditional strict ballet school. However under Chrissy's tuition she has thrived and developed into a confident dancer and has recently been accepted onto the Royal Ballet Junior Associates program. It really is the perfect balance between learning and just having fun!

My daughter Amelia has been learning ballet, tap and modern with CM Dance for around 4 years. She loves her classes and enjoys showing us what she has learned each week. Chrissy is a lively, enthusiastic teacher and her pupils respond warmly to her approach of just the right mix of school ma'am and impish big sister. Chrissy loves ballet, and it shines through in the way she communicates with us and the children. Her pupils come from a wide range of back grounds and she makes dance as accessible and inclusive as she possibly can. I have been delighted with CM Dance, and thrilled with how it has helped my shy five year old blossom into a confident, lively seven year old.

Both my children take lessons with CM Dance. Chrissy runs fun, semi structured toddler ballet classes. Her wealth of experience means that if your child is having an off day or just doesn't want to take part she can judge whether to push them or leave them to watch. Her experience as a mum makes her stand out above the others. For my elder child Chrissy brings the perfect balance of a relaxed easy going nature that children love alongside setting boundaries that enable them to learn in a happy environment. My daughter not only looks forward to her lessons but she loves 'Miss Chrissy' and practises at home on a regular basis.
