He had an awesome time and his friends thoroughly enjoyed themselves too. Ellie and Aleysha were absolutely brilliant and the two hours went so fast. All the children enjoyed themselves from the oldest (13) to the youngest (2). There was so much fun and laughter, we could just sit back and watch all the children have a wonderful time.Thank you so much for a fantastic, brilliant, amazing, memorable, relaxing, tremendous, totally epic birthday party. Dylan often talks about all the fun and all his friends had at his party.It brought back many happy memories from when Grace had her 5th birthday party with you all those years ago!! It is still just as brilliant.Thank you again.Best wishes Jack xxxx

“This was one of the most relaxing parties I’ve had. From a parent’s viewpoint, it's such a simple party to organise....and from the party girl’s viewpoint.....'epic party again Mum, even better than last year’s!”
“Just wanted to say a huge thank you for the best ever party. I didn't have to do anything at all, it was so stress free and the girls in the gym were amazing. We'll certainly be back next year”
“Just a quick note to say how great I thought the class was last night - a whole world away from the last gymnastics class he did. Really good fun and a great variety of activities - I was amazed that he was doing the running/jumping forward rolls after a couple of attempts. He also really enjoyed it - he's not normally the most enthusiastic but he was talking about it all the way home after class and telling his friends the following morning on the walk in to school ”
“My daughter Freya regularly attends camps in the school holidays. She really enjoys the wide range of activities. The camps feature time in the gym as well as some fun crafty time. As a parent I know that I am leaving Freya in a safe, supportive and engaging learning environment and when she is picked up she is already looking forward to her next camp”
“What a wonderful 1st birthday party we had today, thank you so much for making it a very special day for our little boy. All the parents & children had a great interactive session and we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Lucie & Mike, mummy & daddy to Dexter”
“To all you amazing people at Balance & Beam. Thank you so much for making Angel's 1st Birthday party so special. We've had a fab time. 2nd Birthday party at Balance & Beam”
“I've been coming to camps for 5 years and love spending time in the gym. My little sister Phoebe comes with me now so we have even more fun together”
“For me balance and beam is now one of four core elements of care / socialisation for a toddler in their early stages. Exercise, strength and learning things in a class environment & out school clubs all obvious extra bonuses.”
“Thanks so much for making our birthday party so much fun yet again. This was Mollie's 4th Birthday party here and again all the staff were wonderful. Thanks so much to Yvonne & the team!!”
“Thank you to you and your team at Balance & Beam for a fabulous birthday party! Gillie and all his friends had a great time and the staff were amazing; totally stress free, they had everything covered and all with a huge smile, as usual - Wouldn't hesitate to recommend!”
“Would like to say a HUGE thank you for Macy's birthday party on Sunday, Mel and Ellie are a credit to Balance & Beam, so welcoming and organised, and generally lovely girls, really kept the children engaged, all the children had a lovely time and were asking their parents if they could come again, all the parents were impressed how lovely the gym was and just how fab the instructors were.
