Classes

Lower School

Lower School consists of 3 age groups: Nursery-Reception, Reception-Year 2, and Year 2-Year 4. The main aim of Lower School classes are to inspire children's imagination and develop a love for dancing through patience and positive encouragement. Friendships are formed in a fun and welcoming environment. Classes are held in 'Ballet & Tap' and 'Freestyle & Street'. There are opportunities to take part in shows and IDTA grade exams, but these are optional.

Upper School

Upper School consists of 2 age groups: Year 5-Year 7 and Year 7-Year 10. The main aims of Upper School are to develop skills, confidence and timing through practice and application; working at the pace of the individual. Opportunities are also available to use their choreography skills in lessons devoted to creating their own dances every term. Classes are held in 'Ballet & Tap' and 'Freestyle & Street'. Pupils are encouraged to participate in our fun shows and IDTA grade exams.

Seniors

Seniors (Year 10+) are encouraged to develop good deportment, artistry, personal expression and an excellent learning attitude. Strong friendships are formed through the school and classes are still focussed on enjoyment rather than pressure. The Seniors play an important part in the school as positive and confident role models for the younger age groups. Classes are held in 'Ballet & Tap' and 'Freestyle & Street'. Seniors take a leading role in dance shows and often volunteer their time to help out at events or exams.
