DanceWorks teaches both boys and girls great technique! Your child will gain the correct posture, flexibility and strength needed - and most of all a sense of self confidence.


What if my child is already older than 5?

I myself started at close to 7 so there need to start at 3 all children need to run their own race so just start them when they are ready. Once they are 5 classes become a little more formal and classes are available in Ballet, Jazz, Hip Hop & Tap. We allow children to trial classes and as many as they need to make the right decision. Ballet is traditionally the best place to start as it give the students the best grounding from there they can move anywhere across the the genres.

What if my child doesn't like Ballet?

The next best style to encourage them into is Jazz. It is still disciplined but a whole heap of fun. There is also set work especially for boys, in all styles, to develop their co-ordination and strength! Tap & Hip Hop can be studied from 5 years of age and kids love it.


But my child does not want to sit examinations and just wishes to dance for fun, what then? *please note exams are only available for children over the age of 5

That's fine not everyone is into exams, however doing some form of assessment is a good idea. We have Ribbon days in Ballet, Jazz, Hip Hop, Tap & Contemporary. The children love to dress up and perform without the pressure and go home with a Ribbon.

The RAD also offers Solo Performance Assessments, these are less stressful than exams and allow students to show their personalities by performing any dance for their third solo (the other two solos are the ones from their grade of ballet).


What should my child wear to class?

All our uniform is available from the Sugar Plum Fairy shop, however we can liaise with SPF for you and pop your order in for you ...they will contact you when the item is available.
