OUR CLASSES

All of our classes are structured to be enjoyed by the student whilst they gain a dance education. Students will learn technique and see results (if they work hard in class) in a nurturing studio setting.  All classes have strict limit of students to ensure they get sufficient individualised feedback. 

Students who participate in syllabus class are expected to sit a dance exam, and participate in the show each year. 

 

 

When attending class, please do your best to arrive ready and on time for class (this includes in uniform with groomed hair). If you need to speak to the teacher, please do this at the start of your child's lesson as to not use the time of the following class.
