Our Dance Classes


DancePro Academy brings the love of dance and performing arts to all its students, aged 3 to young adults

The Academy first opened its doors in 2013 and offers term-time classes in many genres for children and teens, including baby ballet for students as young as 3 years. Dance classes include Ballet, Tap, Modern, Commercial Street, Musical Theatre including exams with the ISTD syllabus/faculty and drama exams with Lamda. We also offer Toddler Time classes (with their parent/carer) which help develop creativity and imaginative play where your child can learn through fun and creative exercises and activities through music and dance.

Ballet starts with baby ballet from as young as 3 years. Once starting Reception at school, children can progress into the ISTD syllabus work where exams can be introduced. Technical exercises and presentations all go towards final results. Modern can begin at Reception or Year 1. Creative exercises and dances are rehearsed and perfected for exams but also beneficial in learning technique. Tap is introduced at Reception school aged children. Gaining control over the ankles and learning to go “through the feet” rather than moving flat-footed, children love the noise and the challenge.

Performing Arts is a great class for children who like singing, dancing and acting. We also work on voice, physicality, confidence and self-esteem. We also offer weekly Teen classes which provide great exercise in a creative way that is both challenging and fun – the perfect way to destress from school or work.

ISTD Classes

We offer ISTD syllabus classes to children starting from Year 1 which have a minimum age of 5 years to be entered for an exam. These classes are very creative and fun yet educational as well. They are combined to begin with which allows children to experiment with all three genres offered to see which they like and are passionate about.

Our Ballet, Tap and Modern ISTD classes are gender neutral and include structured exercises and dances which work towards exams with grade 6 being the equivalent to a GCSE. Students are also rewarded with UCAS points. This is a brilliant way for students to have the opportunity of gaining an additional GCSE as well as extra UCAS points which gives them a great sense of achievement.

We welcome all

Our classes welcome all children and young adults regardless of age, gender or ability. We aim to accommodate children who wish to attend as a hobby and for those who would like to pursue a career in the profession. Most classes would be suitable for children with additional needs; however ability, focus and concentration would be considered. However, as children grow and progress through the classes, a ‘one to one’ may be required which we can try to provide at a small additional fee of £5.

The level of expectation also increases as children grow and we could work on a plan to create reasonable expectations personal to your child. Children with additional needs can participate in exams but instead of an accredited certificate we reward them with a ‘congratulatory achievement’ certificate of participation.
