These classes are suitable for children aged 2-4 years and are a wonderful introduction into the world of dance. With the help of varied music, props and costume accessories, children are taught mime and storytelling as well as the ballet basics.

Bella Bear joins in all the classes and children are encouraged to bring along their own favourite cuddly toy to join in too.

Parents of nervous young dancers are welcome to stay and join in.



Mixed Tap, Musical Theatre & Show Work

Thursday 4:00pm – 9:15pm

Each class is 45 minutes long and children learn a mixture of tap, street, lyrical and music theatre style dance. Children are put into class according to age.

Every 18 months we put on our big showcase at the Barnfield Theatre, giving everyone a chance to show off their hard work! With full costume and lighting it is a day to remember.

These classes are suitable for girls and boys aged 4 ½ - 17 years and are great for those who wish to experience different kinds of dance styles for fun. No previous experience necessary.

Adult Tap

Beginner class Tuesday 6:00pm - 7:00pm

Intermediate class Tuesday 7:00pm – 8:00pm

Advanced class Tuesday 8:00pm – 9:00pm

Our adult tap classes are all about tap technique, keeping fit and most of all, having fun! In each hour long class we work on steps and combinations as well as one or two set routines to go in our showcase at the Barnfield Theatre.

Working with varied music from pop to musical theatre, we have something for everyone.

The beginners class is suitable for anyone who wants to give it a go! No experience is necessary.

The intermediate class is suitable for those with a little tap experience or those who are very quick learners.

The advanced class is only suitable for those who have tapped before.

A mixture of dance, singing and drama suitable for children aged 5 – 11 years.

With Miss Vicki in charge of the dance, Marie taking control of the drama and a joint effort for the singing, these classes are great for children who have a passion for performing.

Every end of term we put on a performance for parents in full costume provided by us.

A wonderful way to encourage confidence as well as talent.
