About Us

The school was established in 1981 in Bradford, our ethos is fun, fairness, consideration, respect, equality and discipline.  We believe dance should be available to all regardless of environment, background, ethnicity or ability. 

Our fees are set so dance and performance is within everybody’s reach with easy monthly payments. With discounts applied, depending on the number of classes taken per student.

We welcome all students who feel they can maintain our ethos, as we benefit from a family based environment.  Although we strive to keep our ethos alive, we do still run classes with a disciplined element to ensure all students achieve their highest ability.

Classes are run evenings, with occasional extra exam classes and /or rehearsals on weekends. With a variety of lessons in dance and performing arts.  We hold a main production every two years at one of Bradford’s main theatres and we endeavour to hold an annual parents viewing class and presentation, usually around July, enabling parents to follow their children’s progress.

Examinations are taken through the B A T D, as and when the students are ready. We follow the   B A T D syllabus and have had numerous successes with children being put forward for scholarships each year, and who successfully audition and enrol into full time ballet schools and performing arts academies. We are also members of the CDMT who are the government body who regulate the dance/performance world.

All students have a trial period of one month to enable us to place the student within the correct class, after this initial period, uniform is then required which we provide in a uniform pack at a discounted rate from the school, to ensure all students have the correct regulation wear.

Although we are not a competitive school, the students are occasionally entered into competitions in and around the Yorkshire area, but this is not our priority.

We are members of the BATD, the British Association for Teacher of Dancing, and the CDMT, the Council for Dance & Musical Theatre.
