“I am so excited that our terribly shy little five year old felt comfortable enough to stay at the holiday programme today. She had an absolute blast and is so proud of herself for trying everything. So are we. Thanks!”

I love the family/community feel at LPAC. The staff are friendly and passionate and professional. The venue is superb and there is a variety on offer, making it easy to do several activities for several children at the same time or on the same day.

Rochelle Flight

The talented and enthusiastic teachers and the great range of classes is fantastic. My kids really look forward to coming to LPAC every week, they love the challenge and the new techniques they learn at every class.

Just wanted to mention how awesome Brittany was in taking the online dance class for mini movers today. She did such a good job and my daughter really enjoyed it. Was a great little practice 🙂
