DAZL prides itself on striving to deliver an excellent service to schools, parents, funders, other organisations and of course the children and young people! We aim to deliver fun and enjoyable opportunities and experiences, enabling our young people to grow artistically and express themselves whilst developing their social skills.
In order to do this we value feedback from all of our “customers”, we listen and read the comments and suggestions we receive in order to continually adapt and change to make our service the best it can be.
These are just a few things that some young people, parents, teachers, funders have had to say ….
“I love performing on stage with all the other groups/ competitions are the best” – Ella-May Healey, Age 10
“I like DAZL and dancing with my mates but I would like more classes” – Harry Duffy, Age 9
“The best part was learning all The new moves I never knew I could do” Courtney”, Age 10yrs
DAZL is cool and you learn new skills, you make new Friends out of school – Georgia Age 9
“I love dancing, most break dancing!” – Luqnam Hussain, Age 10
“DAZL integrates inspires and encourages young people and mums to participate in fitness through classes it champions friendship team spirit and a ethos to succeed and be the best at what you do irrelevant of ability as there is a total attitude of inclusion fun and inspiration for all well done DAZL and Oh and it’s the first time I’ve stuck at any form of fitness”, Melissa peacock (Ellie’s Mum)
“Sally loves it! She’s only be on team for 4 weeks but she enjoys going she’s made new friends and she’s forever dancing and practicing at home. Sometimes we have tears because she can’t do the splits and feels like ‘she’s rubbish’ but the sessions she had during holidays were really helpful and confidence boosting for her”. Cheers DAZL lv Amanda
DAZL has had a great impact on Ruby, she’s so much more confidence now and outgoing now. She’s made lots of new friends and really enjoys going also it keeps her fit and healthy – Thank you all Kerry
“My daughter Millie Westwood thoroughly enjoyed Camilla’s lessons and I too found Camilla to be an attentive and professional teacher. Camilla is an asset to your organisation”. Kind regards Victoria Westwood (parent)
“Great After School Club, DAZL girls are always really enthusiastic, children have lots of fun and learn new skills, also grow in confidence. Staff are very aware of all the safety aspects of having children in school after the school day too. Highly recommended!” Jill Midgley, Head Teacher, Corpus Christi Primary
“Rather than always using direct health-based messages DAZL promotes physical activity and healthy eating in a form that young people and their families at high risk want to share. Tapping into a parent’s desire for their child to have a good time will be much more effective in achieving behavior change than telling people to be active for an hour a day.”
Janice Burberry, Children’s Lead in Public Health, Leeds City Council
“DAZL sessions are well structured/ accessible and the children clearly enjoy themselves. The children and parents love the performances which is a wonderful goal for them – thank you DAZL.”
Mr P Clay – Westerton Primary School
“Last Wednesday night I was thrilled to have attended the DAZL Outer South Area Showcase, involving many local schools and dance groups, Including Hilltop, Newlands, Westerton, Blackgate and other groups from the South Leeds Area. I was amazing at the wonderful talent of all these groups and would like to take this opportunity to congratulate Ian Rodley and his team for a fantastic show and also to the children who danced well done”
Councillor Wyn Kidger – Lord Mayor, Morley Town Council
