Available Classes

Modern Theatre Dance

Designed for students ages 4 years and over, this class encapsulates all styles of dance you might see in a modern theatre – from jazz to lyrical, street to contemporary. Emphasis is on the learning of solid technique, increasing strength, coordination, musicality, rhythm and stage presence. Classes follow the ISTD syllabus, where there is the opportunity to enter for examinations.

Infant / Pre-School Dance Classes

This class offers an introduction to modern dance for 3-4 year olds in a safe and nurturing environment. Emphasis is on imagination and fun, while teaching them the basic skills needed to progress in Modern. We use lots of props and games to really bring the class to life for little ones. Classes start from age 3 and a half – children need to be happy to be left at class without a parent watching.

Adult Classes

Our adult dance classes are taught on a Monday evening at Footlights Studios and taught by Kerry Donaldson, one of our instructors who has toured the world with her extensive dance career. Keep fit, have fun and learn some routine to a wide variety of music. No dance experience is necessary, so come along to one of our sessions and give it a try!

Dance Academy Shows & Examinations

All students (normally age 6 and over) are offered the opportunity to participate in the annual Dance Academy Showcase. Each class gets the opportunity to showcase what they have learnt on the stage at the Footlights Show. Children are fully costumed and get to experience a professional theatre environment. Performance skills are vital in dance and these shows really give them an opportunity to enhance those skills.

As well as our annual showcase, we also offer our students entry for examinations with the ISTD where suitable. We have an 100% pass rate, with the majority of students receiving Merits and Distinctions. Dance examinations give students a great sense of achievement and let them see their own progress. They are also good preparation for academic examinations, public speaking and job interviews, preparing them well for a variety of scenarios.
