For children eager to expand their dance repertoire, our Ballet, Tap & Modern Jazz  classes offer a dynamic blend of discipline and creativity. These combined classes cater to older children, held at both our Basingstoke and Chineham venues to accommodate family schedules.

The heart of these classes is the British Theatre Dance Association (BTDA) curriculum, which not only prepares students for graded exams but also provides a comprehensive understanding of each dance form. These lessons are infused with fun, allowing students to learn dance routines that enhance their enjoyment and creative expression.
