Her smile when I pick her up on a Saturday speaks volumes for the academy! Sarah Harrison The Dani Harmer academy is very friendly and relaxed. I am learning a lot and it is giving me more confidence especially with dance which I struggle with. Daniel Ravehill My daughter has thoroughly enjoyed her first term at the Dani Harmer Academy.
As a parent I am able to ask questions about agents, work for Daniel and Daniel’s career prospects. She has met new friends and been involved in a town show performance and filming for Sports Relief which are new experiences for her in the world of dance,singing and acting.
