Leamington Spa & Warwick Twirling Toddlers & AQDA

Ashleigh Quigley, AIDTA

Twirling Toddlers & AQDA Director

I’m Ashleigh, the owner of Twirling Toddlers & it’s follow on school, Ashleigh Quigley Dance Academy, and run the Coventry, Leamington, and Warwick area of the business. I have danced throughout my life and was previously part of a Dance Performance group, which gave me the opportunity to perform on several tours abroad, and now enjoy passing my love of dance onto the children that I teach. I find it extremely rewarding seeing the enjoyment on the children’s faces as well as watching them grow in both confidence and ability each week! I am a registered teacher with the International Dance Teachers Association (IDTA), and also trained in RAD Ballet.

“Olivia has been attending Twirling Toddlers for three years and she absolutely loves every minute of it. The classes are perfectly geared up for the ages of the children, they are fun and engaging and the children love the use of the props provided. Olivia’s teacher Ashleigh is an absolute gem. She is fantastic with the children and knows all their names. Her patience and temperament are perfect for the ages she teaches, and her classes are always led with a smile and a warm welcome.

I would recommend Twirling Toddlers time and time again.” Charlotte

“Lily has been dancing with Ashleigh since she was 18 months old and she is now 8 and she still absolutely loves dance and is always excited about her lessons. The care and consideration from the teachers to not only their pupils but their parents is amazing, they always put on wonderful shows and always give each child the very best support during the weekly lessons and exams. Lily has a fantastic relationship with Ashleigh and she very much looks up to her and knows that she can go to her for help with anything. This dance school is OUTSTANDING and I’m so pleased I chose this one for Lily’s lessons they are just amazing.” Amy.

“As a parent who danced as a child it was so important for me to ensure I found a dance class which my daughter loved as much as I did. Ashleigh is so inclusive, warm and welcoming to all of the children, especially the ones who are a bit shy or reluctant to join in. The curriculum is perfect for their age and you can really see the children enjoying doing it. I wish I had a teacher like Ashleigh when I was learning to dance!” Hannah.

“Cheryl is always welcoming and bubbly. We are both excited to do our ‘tappy shoes’ and ballet! The songs are different every week and Daisy always remembers the moves! Showing me she’s learning all the time! Whole lotta love for Twirling Toddlers!” Faye

“Fantastic! Cannot improve perfection” Anne-Marie

“My daughter has been dancing with Ashleigh since she could walk until 5 and is still going. The classes have always been so much fun, age appropriate and interactive. Ashleigh has such a beautiful rapport with all the children – as do all of her team that we have met and had the pleasure to dance with. We had a short break from dancing but are now back as we missed it too much- it’s as if we never left. We have been so impressed at how TT adapted to the challenges of COVID, Zoom classes have been so much fun and provided a much needed outlet from school and work! So thanks to Ashleigh and the team for all you do. We would most definitely recommend you to others”

“Faye has sparked a love of dance in my daughter. Twirling Toddlers provides the ideal start for venturing into dance classes, with an amazing balance of playfulness mixed with dance development and I will continue to recommend it as a place for toddlers to enter into for early dance classes.” Lisa.

“At Banana Moon Hatton, we have worked with Twirling Toddlers for over five years – and it has been a great – and fun! – working partnership!  The children really enjoy Twirling Toddlers every week and the staff have fun too!  Cheryl is our teacher and her enthusiasm and energy is brilliant!  She leads such a great variety of sessions and ensures that all the children are involved and having fun!  The staff continue the singing and dancing throughout the nursery week too!   Thank you Twirling Toddlers – we are developing future dancing superstars!” Liz

“I take my two year old to this class each Thursday morning. Michelle is wonderful – really engaging, lots of positive reinforcement and very relaxed environment. Since starting tap, it has really encouraged my daughters motor skills, confidence and is a great thing for us to be able to do together. My daughter looks forward to tap and it is the highlight of her week! We have even had to find the songs at home so we can practice in the week! Highly recommended as a fantastic class” Emily

“We love Twirling Toddlers! My little boy started these ballet classes when he turned 2 and we haven’t looked back. Cheryl’s style is so engaging and encouraging – when she tells him he has done well, he will beam and talk about it for the rest of the day. We have been so pleased to be able to continue these classes online, and absolutely cannot wait to get back to ‘in person’ classes in the future.” Ros.

“Such a friendly environment. My daughter loves her dancing each week and has really grown in confidence thanks to Cheryl’s great approach and encouragement”.

“Overall, the sessions just bring the perfect balance of not only learning to dance, but also exercise, socialising, developing listening skills, confidence building, using imagination and above all great fun! 

Would recommend (and already have) these session to anyone and everyone!” Rachel

“I highly recommend Ashleigh and the team at Twirling Toddlers. My daughter has been going since the age of 2 and was a reluctant dancer to begin with, but with the care and encouragement of the teachers she is now a confident dancer who has completed dance and exams and dance shows. I wouldn’t go anywhere else” Heather

“Outstanding skills in teaching. My boys have progressed in coordination, balance & musicality. However, I am mostly impressed that Michelle manages to bring smiles to my children’s faces and encourages them to just have fun!” Sita
