I can't recommend AOK-DANCE company highly enough, my 8 year old daughter started ballet with Aoife during the year, a very shy frightened young lady walked through the door of her first dance class, and she danced out.  Since then she can't wait for her Saturday dance class.  Aoife has brought her from strength to strength in both her dancing and mostly her confidence to the point where we got to watch her in her first ever dance show, to say it was amazing is an understatement.  She now wants to start lyrical also so thank you AOK-DANCE and thank you Aoife for teaching her to dance and to become a beautiful confidant young lady

I have both of my girls in AOK-DANCE.  Aoife is outstanding in caring for my girls.  Always looking out for their welfare and happiness.  I couldn’t recommend this school enough.  It’s a safe, warm caring environment and my girls come home happy each time.

Joanne (parent)


Adore this dance school.  Phenomenal confidence building.  I have recommended it to loads of people, majority of whom have started and stayed.  That is a testimonial in itself.

Sally (parent)


My child has become so confident since she has begun ballet classes in such a short space of time.  I was so surprised at the level of skill the children displayed at the end of year show, we were treated to a truly super performance, very entertaining.  Watching my child committing to class every week with a smile on her face because she truly enjoys it is wonderful.  Aoife is a super talented lady with a great ethos of inclusion and support amongst the students.

Yvonne (parent)


My son absolutely loves it and can't keep still at home, he's so confident in expressing himself since he started and that's all any parent wants for their child... it can be particularly stigmatising for boys doing dance so I'm just thrilled that he gets to be a small part in getting past that.

Myself an my husband were totally blown away by the show this evening. I expected to come away a proud mum but I'm overwhelmed by your talent, inspiration, support and professionalism.  My hubby who "doesn't understand dance" is blown away and regards the whole event as "awesome".  It's easy to praise talent but to witness someone so gifted is a privilege.  I wish you continued success. Every student and indeed Clonmel is so lucky.

Michelle (parent)


My daughter loves her ballet and has become so self assured from the classes in the last two years.  Aoife makes it so enjoyable and fun and builds up their confidence.  She really looks forward to her class every week.

Massive congratulations on an absolutely amazing show today.  The standard was incredible with every performance, each piece whether individual, duo & groups had wonderful choreography & each performance really told a story.  I was blown away today, you have out done yourself!

Donna (parent)


Congratulations to you on your amazing end of year show.  I went to both shows, and cried at both.  Between the music you have chosen and the amazing dance routines that you have created, to put it simply, the show just blows me away.  I never felt the time passing by and was captivated by each and every dance.  Thank you so much for making her into the beautiful little dancer that she has become.

Deirdre (parent)


Well done on a fantastic show.  A huge amount of hard work went into the very smooth running & production of the day.  I'm sure you are very proud of all the amazing students today. We thoroughly enjoyed the evening & are so proud of our daughter being confident enough to be on stage in front of so many people enjoying herself & showing off her beautiful dance skills.

It was a fantastic show on Sunday!  Well done to you and to all of the students - it showed such a high level of professionalism, organisation, dedication and passion to your school and the students

Tash (parent)


She has made me more confident and you can improve from every class you have with Aoife. She is very motivating and always cares for all her students.

Gabrielle (student)


Aoife is the most wonderful teacher who not only imparts expert knowledge but is encouraging and motivating to her students. Can't recommend this dance school highly enough.

Eimear (parent)


Fabulous lady who cares so much about her little dancers. My own little lady has blossomed so much and become a much more confident girl.  An absolute pleasure to deal with.  She loves going every sat morning. Thanks and keep up the amazing work.

Jacqueline (parent)


Thank you so much for all you have done for her in her first year dancing with you, the first of many hopefully! I never thought when she started in September that she would perform on stage this year never mind alone in front of a crowd! She loves dance so much.

Ann Marie (parent)


Aoife has given my child great confidence which she lacks and she enjoys going to classes every week. When I catch her practising from the corner of my eye it makes me very happy.

Gina (parent)


Aoife's energy and love for dance and her dancers is infectious!! Would highly recommend Aoife's school of dance to any parent!

Jaine (parent)


Thanks so much Aoife, it was brill, I've learned so many new things and enjoy your classes so much! My Mam also said your show was brilliant, the costumes and dances were beautiful and she said she loved every song that was played.  She also said what a dedicated teacher you are so I'd just like to thank you for everything and I'm so excited for next year.

Lucy (student)


I just wanted to thank you for such a great show this afternoon.  She had been so excited about it all week and was just buzzing after the performance! The hard work and passion for what you do was very evident in every choreographed dance on that stage today.

Marie (parent)


Just wanted to send a quick message to say thank you so much for making her day/week/month with the show yesterday!! I've never seen her so excited about something. She was up at the crack of dawn yesterday waiting to put on her costume and showing me her "butterfly feet". She is still talking about the show today and has been obsessed with watching videos we had from the show! So thank you so much for everything you've taught her, her rose is proudly displayed in now with her certificate. :)  Well done to you for running such a great show yesterday all the students were great.

Cliona (parent)


Absolutely brilliant teacher and an excellent facility for persons of all ages and genders to practice creative expression through dance, in a healthy and totally stress free environment.

Jonathan (student)


Personally I think you are brill, you're buzzing with energy and enthusiasm, kids respond to you very well and enjoy the dancing, so you definitely have to have the patience and interest to work with the kids to teach them this particular beauty of dancing. It's proving very positive for all of our girls they love it. Keep up the fantastic work.

Aisling (parent)


I have learned different styles of dance I'd never tried before, and I've learned to express myself more through dance xx

Noelle (student)


I just wanted to say a big THANK YOU for a fantastic show.  Our daughter thoroughly enjoyed being part of it and we loved seeing all the amazing performances from all the girls. They really showcased the hard work and dedication you put in with them. I can only imagine the coordination and planning that must have gone into it.

Marie (parent)


You are doing wonders helping them with their confidence big time! A few of us were chatting after the show, saying how comfortable you must have made them all feel to be able to go up on stage in front of a full hall and perform with the biggest smiles. They all must really believe in themselves, all thanks to you!

Jaine (parent)


I am enjoying it so much and the classes are so fun and enjoyable, hence you create an amazing fun atmosphere! I love the piece!!!!  I think it's fun and different and I'm sure it will stand out. xxxx

Lorna (student)


I am thrilled to have my 6 year old daughter (and wife!) dancing with AOK-DANCE. Aoife brings world class dance and performance to Clonmel, which I'm sure will be winning major prizes in the years to come. Bravo AOK!

Roger (parent)


It was a fab show, you did brilliant with every child.  We all enjoyed the show, have to say the older girls were wonderful I could have watched them all day. Thank you very much for all you have done for my daughter, she loves going to you and dancing all day at home.

Marina (parent)


The girls were all fantastic today and an absolute credit to you. Thank you so much for all the hard work you put into it, not just the show, but the lessons every week too.
