Studio Six is a small but very successful dance school which has been established in Folkestone since 1980. It is now run by Laura Gibson and Roxy Mellish-Wilson who are very well known in the area for their excellence in dance, choreography and performance backgrounds. Together they are proud of the family orientated dance school they have created at Studio Six, which is run with an emphasis on always having fun whilst performing.
