Our youth classes are designed so that young people can develop their confidence and dance skills in a relaxed environment. Due to this, classes can only be undertaken for the whole term or second half of term – so that the same young dancers see each other every week, allowing time to adjust to the class atmosphere.
These classes can be booked in various different ways:
- Book for the entire term
- OR take a taster class (£5.50) on the first week of any new term. If your child would like to continue you can then book the whole term.
- Join in after Half-Term
- OR take a taster class (£5.50) on the first week after half term. If your child would like to continue you can then book the remainder of term.
