Stage Performance Class

Incorporating a variety of dance styles, combined with singing and acting, these classes provides the children with the opportunity to see how the skills learnt translate to the stage, with an emphasis on musical theatre. The children will also work on flexibility and limbering.  Within the classes we have also been able to offer workshops with industry professionals who have worked on such shows as Grease and Starlight Express.

Drama Classes

Drama classes are taught in groups according to age with sessions including voice, text, character study, improvisation and games to develop the children’s self awareness, confidence and communication skills. L.A.M.D.A examinations are studied separately with individual tutorials to prepare the examination pieces. Each year a presentation of the children’s work is prepared for parents which usually includes group pieces studied in class and individual L.A.M.D.A pieces. 


I.S.T.D Modern Class

Studying the I.S.T.D modern syllabus introduces children to the styles used in the world of commercial theatre and other popular dance forms developed through ballet.

I.S.T.D Tap Class

Tap defines many of the classic Hollywood movie musicals and remains popular in many ontemporary musical theatre productions. Tap helps to develop rhythm, style and timing. Children are able to take examinations following the I.S.T.D syllabus.


R.A.D Ballet Grade Class

Ballet is the foundation of all dance styles with an emphasis on technique and discipline. We follow the R.A.D syllabus for students wishing to take examinations. Many of our senior students also progress to working en Pointe.

Babies and Beginners

Children start their dance training with ballet and tap both being taught in their 45 minute lesson. For children wishing to take examinations, the school will advise when the pupils are ready to attend the R.A.D ballet and I.S.T.D modern and tap classes.


Singing Classes

Singing lessons are taught in groups which allows the pupils to work on singing techniques, group harmonies and how to use the voice correctly. In classes the children will work on songs from pop to musical theatre.
