The Dancers School offers a range of classes for all ages & abilities. While dance is a great source of enjoyment & a very good way to keep fit, pupils are also encouraged to take examinations in the ISTD syllabi in ballet, modern theatre dance, tap & jazz.
Classes from 3 years upwards in graded examinations of the ISTD. Ballet is the technical basis of all dance forms. It is key to encouraging good posture, co-ordination skills & musical appreciation. Although enjoyment is of prime importance for a young child beginning to dance, equally important is a steady build up of technique and safe practice.
