"Train with the Best & You will be the Best''

We offer a happy and friendly environment for your children to thrive in as well as maintaining a professional and disciplined approach.  Dance is not only extremely fun but promotes well rounded and confident individuals who are encouraged to reach their own individual potential.  All our classes promote co-ordination, confidence and physical development.  We teach our pupils the love and enjoyment of dance and we have no greater pleasure in helping a pupil improve and achieve.


Our aim is to provide as many opportunities as possible for all our pupils. We hold IDTA examination sessions each year, and a show which all are invited to take part in - nothing is compulsory. We also have our elite performance group (entrance by audition) who have performed at Disneyland Paris, Royal Albert Hall, Birmingham Hippodrome, Winter Gardens Blackpool, The Kings Hall Stoke, Her Majestys Theatre, London, to name a few. Many of our pupils also successfully audition for Associate schemes with the Royal Ballet, Elmhurst, Hammond School, MIDAS, vocational schools/colleges and professional contracts .
