Ballet (RAD)

Classical ballet is as an excellent foundation for all other forms of dance. It develops technical attributes such as strength, stamina and flexibility alongside artistic elements such as expression, creativity and musicality.

We have our own fun and imaginative pre-school syllabus and for pupils who have just started school for older pupils we use follow the syllabuses of the Royal Academy of Dance. The RAD is one of the world’s most influential dance education organisations and The Dance Barn is registered to enter pupils for examinations and assessments (click here for further information).


Contemporary Jazz

Our Contemporary Jazz classes are for children from 6 years of age. In these classes we learn exercises in the style of contemporary and jazz as well as dance repertoire from well known musicals from stage and screen such as “Lion King”, “The Greatest Showman” and “Matilda”

Other styles

We will be providing lessons in other styles in due course. Subscribe to our mailing list if you wish to receive further information.
