Frequently Asked Questions
What do you specialise in?
We specialise in ballet, but the modern, jazz, tap and musical theatre are also very strong. We encourage all students to take ballet, as it provides the foundations for all other genres of dance. To see which classes we offer, please visit our Classes page.
How many students per class?
Class sizes vary from around 6 to 18 students. If we feel a class is too large, it will be split across two studios into two separate classes, each with a different teacher.
At what age can my child start?
We welcome boys and girls from the age of two and a half.
What should I wear for a trial class?
For ballet, you should wear a leotard, ballet shoes (if you have them), ballet socks or tights and hair should be in a neat, secure bun. For other dance genres, you should wear a leotard, leggings or tights and appropriate shoes.
What are festivals?
Dance festivals are national competitions run by All England Dance, where pupils compete against other dancers of the same age from other dance schools. Pupils are selected by Miss Sue to compete in group dances, trios, duets or solos.
What are the term dates for this year?
