Where do I start my child?

The best place to begin dancing is in our beautiful, vibrant and energetic preschool classes, these classes nurture your child's love of dance by being structured to teach movement before form. Here is the list of pre school classes we offer.

What if my child is older than 5?

Once they are 5 classes become a little more formal and classes are available in Ballet, Jazz, Hip Hop, Tap, Acro and Highland. We allow children to trial in a class they might be interested in, ballet is traditionally the best place to start as it give the students the best grounding. From there they can move anywhere across the genres.

What should my child wear to class?

All our uniform is available information is available on the website and can be purchased from Danceworks Shop.

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! 

Exams, are they compulsory?

But my child does not want to sit examinations and just wishes to dance for fun, what then? 
That's fine not everyone is into exams, however doing some form of assessment is a good idea.

 *please note exams are only available for children over the age of 5
