Who we are

Some of our best childhood memories involve dance. Whether attending class each week, creating routines in the garden with friends, or showing certificates in school assembly, we caught the dancing bug from an early age.

Our job now? It’s passing on similar precious memories. Whether you’re a tiny tot just starting your dance journey or an adult taking some much-needed ‘you’ time once the kids are in bed, we provide a fun, safe space to enjoy a love of dance and movement to music.

The team

We’re lucky to have a wonderful team of teachers, all super-passionate about dance.
