We appreciate that not all parents want their children to become professional dancers. While we encourage everyone to try their best and reach their own personal dance goals we also take the matter of educating your child seriously and look to your support, whether that's helping them to be on time for class or discussing their learning and watching their performances. We all learnt maths at school but not many of us became accountants, learning to dance is the same. Everyone can benefit from the life lessons learnt through the arts.
We offer a number of different dance styles. Below is a description of the classes we have on offer and the age these classes start from. Discover the best styles for your child and we can help you on your dance journey by booking a three week introductory trial.
From experience, we know it can be a little daughting trying something new, it can take a few weeks to settle into a class and get a real 'feel' for the style hence our policy of an introductory three week trial. By the third session both yourself and your budding star will have grown in confidence and be able to make an informed decision on whether the class is the right style for them.
