About Us

At our school we want every student to develop confidence and a positive attitude whilst enjoying their  dance experienceOur highly skilled, friendly teachers endeavour to get the best out of each and every child making sure they develop their performing arts skills whilst having fun.  All our teachers are fully trained, insured, DBS checked and hold first aid certificates.

In addition to our weekly dance classes, students have the opportunity to take examinations with the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing (ISTD) and International Dance Teachers Asociation (IDTA).   We also host a range of events throughout the year including our popular themed dress-up weeks, summer and halloween events, community events and our yearly awards ceremony where we celebrate our students achievements.  The highlight of the school year is our Annual Show which is held in a local theatre.
