These classes provide an opportunity to learn new routines with an emphasis on developing technique. These classes are ideal for beginner students who want to strengthen their technique and develop their self-confidence before facing the challenge of exams.

Examinations are conducted in jazz, tap, ballet and hip hop in the BDA (British Dancing Association) syllabus once a year. Exams are optional, with successful students receiving a medal and certificate before advancing to the next grade. Training for exams strengthens technique and encourages dedication and self discipline. 


Jazz focuses on technique and deportment as well as learning choreographic skills. Students are taught a wide range of combinations and routines, as well as exercises to improve posture and develop and maintain co-ordination. Classes in jazz offer opportunities for participation in eisteddfods and exams.



Classes are taught using the BDA syllabus.  With an emphasis on  co-ordination, tap classes are the ideal way to make lots of noise and have fun! Basic skills are taught in the beginner classes, which allow for more complicated routines to be mastered in advanced years. 


Classical ballet is the perfect opportunity to develop and strengthen posture, technique and deportment. Highly recommended in senior years, training in classical ballet provides a foundation for other forms of dance. 



Borrowing from both jazz and classical ballet structures, modern contemporary offers a unique interpretation of dance, reflecting classical technique with a focus on contemporary style. Modern is a less structured form of dance, relying on creativity and inspiration.


One of the most popular classes, hip hop allows the student to unleash the performer within. Using a variety of the most modern and innovative moves, students will learn exciting new combinations and routines. It is recommended that students have had a basic training in jazz before discovering the excitement of hip hop.
