Who is the service for?

We offer dance classes to children to help encourage confidence fitness and social skills.
Dance is a great way for young people as young as 2, to understand their bodies through movement and use of sound and rhythm to do so.

Our classes all take place after school (with the exception of out twinkly toes class that is mid-afternoon), so it’s a great option for an extra curricula activity.

Criteria for access to service

Our classes are paid termly via cash or bacs payments and we do offer discounts for siblings and if parents are on JSA or income support (evidence is needed).
We initially offer one free taster class and a three-week trial for the child to attend at a lower cost before they sign up for the term.

Accessibility of this service

We pride ourselves in encouraging young people of all abilities and needs to come to our classes and love to see them grow in confidence.
