Kids/Teens

All of our graded classes follow the IDTA (International Dance Teachers’ Association) exam syllabus. Students are encouraged to work through and complete the grades in succession as this ensures good technique. We like to combine both tap and theatre craft in our sessions, however, if it’s just one style you are interested in we are able to cater for your requirement. All graded classes are available for students 6 years and over.
