Autumn 2019 - New Dance Class Timetable

Our Summer timetable finishes on Thursday 22nd August. We will then be closed for a week before re-opening on Monday 2nd Septmebr with a new Autumn dance class timetable. There have been a few changes to class times, especially on Saturdays so please make sure to have a look through before coming along to class!

We have also added some new dance classes for September including;

  • Adult Beginner Pointework, Monday 18:00
  • Adult Cabaret Performance Group, Wednesday 19:00
  • Male Only Ballet Class, Thursday 18:00
  • Youth Beginner Ballet Class, Saturday 14:15


This hour long pointe class is aimed at those who want to continue developing their pointe work strength and improve their technique. Pointe work encourages different muscles, creating longer lines, and the strength that is not only aesthetically beautiful, but also beneficial to allegro.


This is an audition only class that works on choreography to perform at various events across the region. Contact us for more information.


This male only class taught by a male tutor is suitable for beginners and improvers to the style of ballet.


This drop-in class is taught by our artistiuc director and is suitable for complete beginners as well as those with some knowledge of the style but who don't want to take exams or who do want to take exams but haven't learnt the basic foundations yet.

You can download the new timetable now. Most of our adult classes are drop-in and pay as you go and we offer 3 weeks pay as you go for our exam classes so that you can make sure the class is suitable before having to commit to a full terms payment.

We'll be running a series of dance workshops as well with Liz Foster (from Derby University) returning on November 10th to lead some more ballet and contemporary dance workshops and Andrea Haley returning to lead a Leading Dance for Older People workshop in October.

We'll also be running some 3 or 4 week beginner courses aimed at teaching the basics in Tap Dance, Progressing Ballet Technique and Singing.

  • 4 week beginner Tap Dance course - Starting Thursday 20:00, 19th September
  • 3 week Progressing Ballet Technique - Starting Friday 18:00, 11th October
  • Singing course - tbc


Have you seen people tap dance on stage? Think ‘no way can I do that!!’. Think again!

All tap dancing starts with learning the basics and this is what the beginner course aims to do. In this four week course you will learn about basic technique and some fundamental steps that form the building blocks for all types of tap dancing. At the end of the course, you will be able to perform a simple, short routine joining together the things you have learnt.

Why not give it a go!


Using techniques from the world-famous Progressing Ballet Technique and Pilates, this 3-week course will give you training exercises to do at home to improve;

  • Posture
  • Muscle memory
  • Alignment
  • Weight placement
  • Stability

It is open to anyone, of any age who wishes to look in more detail at how to improve their dance - whatever style.

Please wear tight comfortable clothing, barefoot and if you have one, please bring a gym ball (it can be inflated here) and theraband (there will be some to borrow during the sessions).

The course will be led by Anna Olejnicki, a Fellowship Ballet teacher (Dist.) with the IDTA, and a registered teacher with the RAD and PBT.
