Such a fantastic Dance company! Lois is a fantastic teacher, with a bubbly and enthusiastic character.

I've learnt so much from Lois by being with ENTW9. It's a great dance company with fantastic projects and classes in the Worcester area.

I have enjoyed every second of my placement with ENTW9, Lois is a fantastic dancer, dance teacher and person! She worked hard to allow me to achieve my goals and goes out of her way to help you with anything as much as she can. 


I really enjoyed the classes as Lois worked closely with our individual needs to improve our technique, but also made classes relaxing and friendly. Throughout my placement I saw my strength improve vastly, and I also got better at working with other dancers through contact work. This was helpful in my dance technique module during my final year at university, as applying what I learnt improved my practical grades. 


The company has given me the opportunity to perform in public, take part in dance photo shoots and work on social media advertising. These were mostly new and exciting opportunities that have boosted my confidence as a dancer and as a person. Also, learning about small businesses was interesting and inspiring - I now hope to run my own one day. 


I am very grateful for the experiences and fun I have had with ENTW9, and I will carry these skills with me into my career.
