Gaining Confidence and Self Awareness….

Older children in primary school can join dance classes at this stage even if they have never taken a dance class before

 A trial class will help us to recommend the best fit for your son / daughter. Ballet and Modern Theatre Dance classes cater for both girls and boys.

This is a great age to use body movement to express feeling and aid emotional development.   Gaining a sense of self is part of each child’s dance class journey. 

Children are groups with their peers working on strength, technique flexibility and more detailed understanding of how to master dance steps.   Opportunities for examinations, awards and performances will increase in line with student progression bringing a sense of pride and confidence.

Saturday and Tuesday Classes

What About Boys?

All Ballet and Modern Theatre Dance classes cater for both girls and boys.

Ballet tends to attract more female students while modern theatre dance and other genres are more mixed.  However, all classes are open to boys too.

Boys are sometimes grouped separately depending on the dynamics of what is being taught and the genre choice.

From Age 10 and up, boys can join Boys Dance Crew where they will experience dance with like-minded peers.
