Our latest timetable has now been updated!

Hi Everyone

We have had to spend some time adding a few tweaks to our latest timetable. As you all know we are pretty busy and as the students get older and move through their grades we are always trying to create space for their new classes.

We are really sorry that we can’t always accommodate all the classes and things we would like to do but we certainly have a good go.

We have made quite a few tweaks so just check your times before you come to class and finally we hope to bring you some new things during the October half term that we haven’t managed to fit in this time around.

Thanks everyone!

You can find the new timetable on the website now :-)

Spring Performance Grade 1+ Only

Miss Sam & the DA Team are excited to be putting together a spring performance Journey Through Dance on Sunday 25th March 2018. Journey Through Dance will be a performance of our dance school class repertoire. Unlike our dance performances before this will be a performance of students class work, amalgamations and set combination steps that take you on a journey of how dance progresses. If you have ever wondered how a pirouette progresses or how dancers make it onto pointe or to see a paradiddle turn into a paddle come and watch our journey through dance. All of our dancers from Grade 1 upwards are invited to join us for this special performance. Our performance day will be followed by an awards ceremony.

Grade 1 +
