AGED 4 - 11 

 

BALLET, MODERN & DISCO AND TAP

AGED 4-11 YEARS

Our Dance Classes are held in Epsom from Monday to Saturday. Classes are progressive and students move through the grades following the IDTA syllabus as they grow more experienced.

From aged 4 to 6 children will be in our Rising Stars classes and will learn a combination of Ballet, Tap and Modern & Disco in their classes. At this level students follow the Preparatory IDTA syllabus.

 

Aged 7 and over children move into our Junior, Bronze or Silver classes and follow the Primary to Grade 2 IDTA syllabus for Ballet, Tap, Modern and Disco. These classes are taught separately but conveniently held one after another to make it easy for students to study more than one dance style. These class combinations are also charged as a package so you pay for the time spent in class rather than by style. 

 

We welcome students at any age and ability and all new students will be invited to a FREE TRIAL to enable us to assess the class level that they should join.

ACRO DANCE (GYMNASTICS)

AGED 4 YEARS (RECEPTION) AND OVER

We know how much children of this age love to do cartwheels and handstands so we offer a class that combines gymnsatics with dance! Gymnastics dance incorporates acrobatic movement into elegant flowing routines, with creative, expressive lifts and poses.

 

Our classes follow the IDTA syllabus and our teachers are fully certified. We offer beginners and improvers classes to allow students to maximise the skills that they learn. 

 

All classes are fun, energetic and teach students a great combination of skills - from training to do the splits and bridges to cartwheels and tumbles. 

JUNIOR
MUSICAL THEATRE

AGED 7 YEARS AND OVER

Our Musical Theatre classes are a great introduction to the wonderful world of singing, dancing and acting and follow the IDTA Musical Theatre syllabus. These classes are fun, energetic and give a fantastic confidence boost to students. 

Each week children focus on singing, dancing and acting - each for half an hour. They are split into smaller groups 

dependent on age range and ability and also work as a full ensemble for some performance pieces providing a wonderful sense of team work and spirit.

STRETCH & LIMBER
AGED 7 YEARS AND OVER (online class)

Stretching is so important for dancers; it's how they achieve advanced moves and make their routines more aesthetically pleasing. Our stretch class is designed to help dancers achieve their splits, y-stands, needles and scorpions. A short half an hour class which is delivered online, this class perfectly complements our full timetable of dance classes.
