Why choose us for Dance?

«Smaller Class Sizes
Enabling a student to get more individual instruction from a teacher results in greater progress over a shorter period of time. Capping our class sizes also ensures that the teacher can catch problems before they turn into bad habits or improper technique.

«Variety of Dance Styles & Methods
Highly qualified teachers with varied training and teaching methods are available to a teach abroad range of dance format.

«Our Dance Studio Advantage - The "Floating" Professional Dance Floor
Floating floor diagramOur floor rests on a system of over 2000 high density foam blocks to absorb the shock and impact of regular dance movements. This benefits students by reducing fatigue and preventing injury that can result from dancing on hard surfaces. The top layer of our flooring surface is a professional vinyl composite "marley" floor similar to the surfaces used by Royal Academy of Dance, and Riverdance-The Touring Show. This marley floor surface has a certain amount of controlled slip to allow for sliding in dance movement, but is not slippery like common tiles found in most other dance studios.

«Preschool Dance 2-5 years
Introduction to ballet and tap for children from 2 to 5 years of age. They will learn the basic steps and positions through fun and exciting exercises while introducing ballet's French terminology. The specially designed class for this age group provides a sound foundation for the transition into classical dance training.
