Making friends
and building confidence through dance

What we do

We offer dance classes for children and adults of all ages. Dance lessons are available in RAD Ballet, ISTD Modern, ISTD Tap, Street Jazz and Commercial styles of dance.

Our dance classes are held in Milton Keynes and Newport Pagnell throughout the week and at weekends.

As well coming to dance classes students also enter into examinations at regular intervals throughout the year to gain formally recognised qualifications. Students can choose to attend a range of different dance workshops and summers schools during the year. There are always lots of opportunities to perform and we put on a major ticketed dance production once every two years.

What we believe in

We create a fun a friendly environment for your child to learn the technique and discipline of dance. The most important element is building confidence, making friends and developing social skills.

For those student who wish to takes things further and pursue a career in Dance we make sure that from day one all students are on the correct path to formally reconginised qualifications. Many of our students go on to take full time places at dance colleges and theatre schools when they leave school.
