Fusion is a fun rhythmical class combining all aspects of dance for 4 – 6 year olds. Students will be taught in a relaxed environment developing, rhythm, musicality and good posture whilst learning the basics of ballet, hip hop and tap dance.


Classical Ballet is much loved around the world. We inspire girls and boys to use movement to express themselves alongside developing strength, co-ordination, musicality and an appreciation for the beautiful art form.


This class aims to develop the students’ technique and flexibility in the first section of class before moving through a creative section where emotions will be conveyed through movement exercises and ending with a contemporary choreographed routine.

Yesterday we took our daughter to watch The Jungle book and wanted to express sincere appreciation for such a wonderful show.

Each performance was magical! You made our daughter’s love for Ballet even stronger. Thank you every moment was worth the watch.

I just wanted to say a big thank you and give my congratulations on such an amazing show over the weekend! Our little frog Ava absolutely loved it and it was great to see all her hard work pay off. She’s still buzzing. The show was incredibly professional and beautifully done. All the ballerinas were wonderful. We wish we had gone more than once!
