Our high energy dance programme is engaging and entertaining for all, allowing students to master the fundamentals of dance and proper technique in a fun, relaxed and non competitive atmosphere. Our classes promote co ordination, poise, passion, self confidence and encourage a love for dance.

The material selected for your child’s dance class is appropriate for each individual class, bearing in mind the students’ age, abilities and experience. Special Needs Students are also catered for.

Aside from weekly classes students are encouraged to participate and perform in all our showcases throughout the year including the Modern Theatre Dance Awards in October, The Christmas Cabaret in Douglas Court and Douglas Village Shopping Centre in December and our very own Easter Pantomime in the Everyman Palace Theatre. Dance students also have the opportunity to take Dance Exams, however these are not compulsory.

Our modern dance classes combine cardio vascular warm ups (and dance games for younger age groups) and stretches with exam syllabus based dance exercises and brand new choreography that is modern, motivating and inspiring with our main emphasis always on enjoying and excelling in dance!! We pride ourselves in giving an opportunity to all children, whatever their ability, to enjoy dance and participate in something that will have lasting memories for life.
