Welcome to Oris Dance

Come and join us at one of our three venues throughout St. Helens. Our classes are friendly, safe, affordable and lots and lots of fun!

Some of our best childhood memories involve dance. From creating routines in the garden with friends, to proudly hanging certificates on the wall; from being mesmerized by the Flamenco dancers on holiday, to the excitement of getting new ballet or tap shoes...


And of course there was dance class each Saturday and all that came with it - fun, friends, performances, new skills, achievements.


Some years on, those children are now the teachers. Dance routines with friends in the garden are less common (although not completely unheard of!) and we hope to provide the kind of fond memories for our dancers that have always stayed with us.


"Oris" is a Latin word meaning expression. If you want to dance for fun, fitness, and with friends, come and express yourself with Oris Dance.
