More about the Dance Academy

Through our excellent standards of teaching for boys, girls and adults we endeavour to teach dance in a safe and relaxed environment, making the pupils experience enjoyable and most of all fun.

Whether learning dance is for pleasure, fitness or career aspirations our school can offer and facilitate all aspects of dance.

What we teach

Dinky Dancers

For children 18 months – 2.5 yrs. A fun, dance based class for children who love to sing and dance to their favourite songs and nursery rhymes. It will improve your child’s co-ordination and social skills as well as challenge their imagination and creativity. Parent participation is encouraged in this class.


Ballet originated in the Italian Renaissance courts of the 15th century and is the foundation on which all other dance forms are based. Classes follow the ISTD syllabus providing children with good technique, co-ordination, posture and grace.

Modern Theatre

Is a rhythmic dance style which is often seen on the stages of musical productions and is known for its theatrical qualities. The style uses travelling steps, high kicks, leaps and turns which all need strength and flexibility. Classes follow the ISTD syllabus.


Dancers use their feet to strike the floor, beating out different rhythms, with pupils wearing tap shoes which have small metal plates on the toe and heel to give the distinctive sound. Tap dance is a theatrical art form often seen on stage in musicals. Classes follow the ISTD syllabus.

Street Dance

Emphasises the development of strong dynamics with isolated movements and strong dance performance. It is a fun packed class with fresh and funky choreography with a urban street vibe.


Fitness is currently one of the world’s fastest growing fitness programmes. It fuses hypnotic latin rhythms and easy to follow moves to create a dynamic fitness program that will blow you away. Our goal is simple: We want you to want to work out, to love working out, to get hooked. So what are you waiting for?
