"There are shortcuts to happiness, and dancing is one of them." Vicki Baum


Ballet Dance

Pre-School Dance

"Forget dancing like no one is watching. Dance like a toddler. They don’t even care if there is music"

Pre-school Classes

In our Pre-school classes students begin to learn the basics of Ballet, Tap and Theatrecraft. In this class we use lots of props as well as relevant and familiar songs that children know and love. Parents/Carers stay for these classes.

Students also regularly receive rewards for their hard work. We have a reward system in place for our very youngest of pupils for the reason that they are too young to take exams. This is an exciting time for everyone, the students absolutely love receiving their first awards because we acknowledge them for their hard work. Our Pre-School dance classes are hugely popular and are the very start of a child’s dance journey. In these classes we develop confidence, coordination, musicality as well as many other skills required for dance. We have a vast array of exciting props and music to use as well as exciting teaching techniques to help pupils master the basics of dance.

Students gain awards for their work and are encouraged to show their work to family members and friends. Parents stay for all of our Pre-school classes. This is an exciting age where children master new skills very quickly. We have a variety of different classes covering different ages and styles of dance.

Moo Music

Our Moo Music classes are designed for our very youngest pupils, we have several different classes available for different ages, from early walkers right through to Pre-schoolers (confident movers). These classes are a great way to engage with your little one in a fun and exciting environment. We use lots of new catchy songs exclusive to Moo Music classes, we also use exciting props and a variety of different musical instruments. All classes are planned and led by an Early Years teacher so are age appropriate for your little one.

We also like to follow children’s interests through these classes, as children progress through Moo Music you will see that they begin to know actions to the songs and will begin to sing along and ask for their favourites. You will also be with other parents who too will have children of a similar age. All classes are informal, fun, warm and friendly. It’s great place to socialise with other parents and for little ones to make friends.
