What we teach!

Little Stars 

Explore the world of dance with our Preschool class, starting from 18 months. Featuring tap, ballet, and singing, our weekly activities incorporate fun props. Each week, students earn a new sticker, working towards completing their certificate and receiving a prize. Parents can actively participate, observe the class, or unwind in our reception area with a live class view on the monitor. Students also have the exciting option to showcase their skills in our annual performance at the Towngate Theatre, Basildon. Join us for a complimentary trial session and let the dance adventure begin!

Performance Classes

Enroll in our Show Performance Classes for an opportunity to be featured in our annual show at the Towngate Theatre, Basildon. These classes are designed to accommodate all skill levels, offering a blend of tap, modern/commercial, and musical theatre styles. For reception-age students and above, the cost of beautiful costumes is included in the fees. We invite you to experience the excitement with a free trial – come join us on the stage!

Exam Classes

We specialise in teaching I.S.T.D. examinations covering Ballet, Contemporary, Modern, and Tap. With a large number of students, we can provide opportunities for all grades in each subject. After completing an exam, students can seamlessly progress to the next grade. These classes focus exclusively on exam preparation, eliminating the need for breaks to learn show routines. Students advance through the syllabus at their own pace, aligning with their natural ability and commitment to learning.



We take immense pride in our Display and Select Team, made up of dedicated and enthusiastic students who have consistently excelled in both competitions and performances. Recently, our Display Team showcased their talents at Alton Towers and Disneyland Paris. Looking ahead, we are excited to announce that next year will mark our fifth consecutive performance on a cruise ship in the Mediterranean Sea. Our team continues to shine, and we look forward to more outstanding achievements in the future.
