Fun, Fitness, Friends

Looking for stage dance classes in Eccleston/St Helens? Look no further. Dance for fun, fitness and with friends in a safe, supportive atmosphere.

Join us at one our two venues in St. Helens. Our dance classes are friendly, safe, affordable and lots and lots of fun!

Why dance with us?

We know choosing a class of any kind for you or your child is kind of a big decision. It’s got to feel right of you. So why should you join us?

Our philosophy is fun, fitness, and friends.


Dance is a hobby, so it’s got to feel fun. Yes, we like our dancers to achieve (we’re super-proud of our 100% exam pass rate), but what’s more important is that everyone leaves each week with a smile on their face.


We can all be guilty of too much TV time. But what’s great about dance is you’re exercising without even realising it most of the time. Improve flexibility, muscle tone, and cardiovascular performance all through dance!


Friends that dance together, stay together. A main goal of ours is to create and encourage a friendly, supportive environment where everyone feels valued, engaged, and part of the Oris Dance family.

Now accepting new members!

Now’s the perfect time

As we wind down towards the end of the school year, now is the perfect time for newcomers to try a class.

From September we’re starting brand new class work, and again, it’s be a great time to get involved.

From tiny toddlers, to young-at-heart adults, we’ve a class for you. Get in touch to find out more.

Want a dance class for you and your little one?


Little Oris is the place for you!

Join us early on Saturday mornings (we know having a toddler means you’re up anyway!) for two classes especially designed for our tiniest dancers.

For toddling to age 3, there’s Toddlers, and from age 3-4.5, there’s Preschool. With both, parents/carers can stay, meaning your little one benefits from the security of having you there. Plus, you get to watch your little one busting their moves!

What people say about us

"The recent exam results are a fantastic testament to your lovely team and all the time and effort you put in. You should be so proud of all the effort and sacrifice you make. You, and the dance school, make such a positive impact on the lives of the young people you train and give them skills and ability they will keep for a life time. Well done and thank you. You are stars!"

Marie BrownParent

"I'd never danced before so attending my first [adult tap] class was nervewracking. Eventually I bit the bullet and went along. I was immediately put at ease by the teacher and made welcome by the other ladies in the group. Some weeks on and I am addicted to tap dancing. Great class and I'd recommend anyone thinking about giving it a go, to just do it!!"

DeborahTap n Tone class member

"My children have attended other dance classes in the area, but I can honestly say that Oris Dance is the happiest, most fun, organised and professional my husband and I have seen. Miss Lindsay, Miss Zoe and the team invest so much time and patience with every single one of the children. I can't imagine my girls moving dance schools again."

Helen JonesParent

"Just a line to say what a pleasure it was to be backstage yesterday. You are so organised - covering absolutely everything in great detail!
You also provided all information needed - and more - to ensure the smooth running of the show. Not only this, but everybody was so calm and friendly.
The children were polite and well mannered. They knew exactly what they were doing! What a fabulous reflection on you both.
Everybody backstage was lovely too - including all the runners and dressers.
What a great team you have!
I wish every chaperone job I did was like this!! So... well done to all at Oris Dance!!!!!"

"I just wanted to say how fabulous the show was. All (our) family and friends thoroughly enjoyed it. It was very obvious that a lot of hard work went into it.

And if you have not seen the DVD yet you won't believe the difference in ****. That shy timid girl just loves being on that stage and beamed all the way through. She made me cry more than anything else!"

Vicky RichardsonParent

"That's Entertainment! Clearly you two can do a great job. Shame it's a wrap on this year's dance show, but you'll definitely be back for a sequel. Thank you for everything xx"

Angela ClarkeParent

"The teachers are very patient with the children, especially the younger ones. I know my child is safe and well looked after in their dance class."

Jane WigginsParent

"The relaxed atmosphere of the classes makes them enjoyable for the children."


"I am very happy with Oris Dance. My daughter really enjoys the lessons and looks forward to it every week."
