BALLET CLASSES 

All our graded (IDTA) ballet classes are on Saturdays and are payable by the term. The classes are geared towards exams but are optional. Levels start with Introductory Minimum age 4 up to advanced levels. 

Introductory and preparatory classes for 4 – 6 year olds

These classes are designed to give  the young child a chance to be acquainted with the three  main forms of theatre dance – ballet, tap & theatre. After introductory and preparatory level,  these disciplines are taken as  separate classes. 

TAP CLASSES 

Tap classes also run on Saturdays from Primary grade to grade 5. Children need to work through the grades in order to develop a solid technique. Therefore if a child starts as a beginner at a later age they would still need to start at primary – grade 2 level. We try to accommodate late beginners whenever/wherever we can. 

STREET DANCE 

Classes in street are young starters; junior class and senior class. These classes are on Saturdays. See timetable. Children may take a medal in all street dance classes

CONTEMPORARY

Contemporary for 8 – 11 year old. Saturdays 4.30 pm. This class explores both creative work and technique. It is for children who may not have experience in other dance forms but not exclusively. For older students who have experience of not only contemporary but also ballet there is a class at 4.00pm. Ages 15 upwards

ACRO DANCE

This is a new addition to our programme.

We will be taking children from 4 years + 

Each class takes a maximum of 10 pupils. It is preferable if the children also take ballet alongside acro but in the very early stages is not essential. After level 1 ballet as extra training is compulsory. Acro dance classes will be commencing here at the studios in September 2017

Please email or call us for more info as the timetable is subject to change and it is worth checking first to ensure a class is running
