The school was first established in 1987 and has venues in Weston Turville, Aston Clinton, Stoke Mandeville and Eaton Bray. We teach a variety of styles of dance: RAD Ballet, ISTD Tap, Modern and Jazz also a free style hip hop/street dance class. Pupils may enter for exams when we feel that they are ready, but exams are not in any way essential to the progression of your child. Fully qualified teachers teach all classes.
Every three years we stage a school show. Our latest big production; ’Just One Night’ was staged in July 2015 at the Milton Keynes Theatre. We are currently negotiating our next show event with the Waterside Theatre in Aylesbury on May 20th 2018. In addition to this, pupils are selected and invited to dance at Her Majesty’s Theatre in London for ‘Young Performers’ charitable organisation, Disneyland Theme Park Paris and Portaventura Theme Park in Spain for the Mardi Gras Dance group. In May 2017 the school took 80 students to perform in ‘Stars in the Round’ at The Royal Albert Hall. This, as you can imagine, is an excellent experience for those participating as well as parents watching.
We try to have an annual event, in addition to regular examination sessions, that students may participate in. Our school show at the Milton Keynes Theatre, a short break and performance at Disneyland Paris or a performance at a prestigious theatre in London.
We currently have three teachers, Jo, Laura and Ciara, plus Cydnie who is on her RAD teacher training course and is being mentored by Jo during our Saturday Ballet classes. The school is registered with the International Society of Dancers (ISTD) and the Royal Academy of Dance (RAD).
