The school is run by Banbury residents Julie Bruce and Tee Lily. They said: “Being in the centre of town is perfect for dance classes and for local businesses as parents shop and have a coffee whilst their children are attending their lessons.

"We would like to thank the centre management team for giving us the opportunity to bring dance to central Banbury.”

"We are so excited for the future and are hoping to move to even bigger premises in Castle Quay for our stars to train in.”
