A little bit about our Patron Bob Reitemeier, and a tribute to our first Patron, Philip Madoc
Best was founded in 1998 and we’ve done so much in 15 years…
Most of our students arrive through ‘word-of-mouth’. People do say some lovely things…
Naturally performance plays a big part in what we do – our annual Best shows give everyone a chance to show off new skills…
