What's the Best Class for Me?

This gives a general indication for class levels.  We recognise that people progress at different levels and have had varying past dance experience, so please email or call us to discuss if you require more information.

Introduction Courses

Our 10 or 5 week structured courses are a great way to get started in a new dance style. They are designed to suit complete beginners or those with a little experience who want to refresh their skills. They will give you the skills and confidence to move forward into the level classes. The 10 week courses run in four blocks throughout the year in line with school terms. Often people choose to do a course twice before moving to level 1.

Introduction to Ballet 10 weeks

Our Introduction to Ballet Courses have been running for almost 10 years and have proven to be the best place for adult learners to start their dance journey. Including barre and centre exercises they provide a foundation of ballet technique, co-ordination, core strength and flexibility. There are three courses run per week to choose from but if you are unable to make the same day each week you can make it up on another day.

Or if you want to fast track you can do more than one class a week and purchase another card when the course card runs out.
