We are a registered School with the Royal Academy of Dance and International Dance Teachers Alliance and follow their examination syllabus, which are of an extremely high standard.
Classes are held weekly during the school year and children must attend regularly.
When children reach the required standard they can be entered for the R.A.D. and I.D.T.A. Graded and Graded Vocational Examinations. We also have I.D.T.A Tap and Jazz classes and examinations available.
Children can take part in the school `Performance` held in a local Theatre and it is always greatly enjoyed by those who take part.
Children who show an aptitude for dance are encouraged to attend more than one lesson per week increasing to 5 lessons a week for children wishing to pursue dance as a career. Children attending 2 or more lessons a week are eligible to take part in the various ballet competitions and festivals we attend each year.
