Classes for all

From toddlers finding their feet and children perfecting their hobby, to adults rediscovering the joy of movement to music…we’ve a class for everyone.


We offer Toddler Ballet and a Preschool stage dance class to kick off our little ones’ dance journey and prepare them for our main school.


Our main school’s lively stage dance classes are bursting with enthusiastic dancers from Primary school age to late teens.


Dancing’s not just for kids. From twenty year olds to youthful seventy-somethings; let’s get you moving!

Little Oris Dance

Little Oris Dance is the arm of Oris designed especially to introduce our littlest dancers to the magical world of dance and movement to music.

Toddler Ballet and Preschool classes, up to around age 4.5 meet at St Julie’s church hall – the perfect home for our youngest dancers and their parents to move around freely.

Little Oris is a fun and relaxed environment for your little one to experience their first classes whilst enjoying the security of a parent or carer by their side.

If you’re struggling to get a slot on our booking page, please contact us​ – we’ll place you on our waiting list, advise of cancellations, or remind you when new booking links are live.

Toddler Class

Introduce your little star to the magical world of dance and movement to music.

This class is suitable for little ones from around 12 months (walking is beneficial but parents are welcome to carry their little ones if they’re not yet confident on their feet) to approx. 3 years.

Saturdays 8:45-9:15am, St Julie’s

Preschool Class

Children of age 3 (or whenever they’re getting more comfortable joining in a class without as much help from a parent) to approx. 4.5 will enjoy an introduction to stage styles of dance (modern, tap, ballet).

This class is packed with dance but also fun activities, props, and games. And parents can still stay and watch.

Saturdays 9:15-9:45am, St Julie’s

Main School (children & teens)

Children and teens dance classes run on Saturdays at one of two St Helens venues: St Julie’s and Ruskin Leisure.
Classes are divided into age groups and children learn stage styles of dance – modern, tap and ballet. We often practise additional styles such as street, contemporary and acro, plus pointe work for oldest dancers.

Broadway Beat Fitness

With the popularity of short bursts of high intensity exercise on the increase, we launched our Broadway Beat class. Short of time? Don’t worry – we’ll guide you through a fast-paced set of upbeat routines to get you moving and burning calories in just 30 mins.

In this class we don’t worry too much about perfect placement. Bring your own style and if you love a good boogie, you’ll probably be having so much fun (and concentrating on remembering your steps) you won’t even realise you’re exercising!

Wednesdays 7:00 – 7:30PM @ Ruskin Leisure

Ballet/Barre Fitness

Ever wonder how ballerinas get so toned? It’s because they do ballet everyday! In this class we use some of the principles of ballet to create repetitive sequences that tone, loosen, stretch and improve flexibility and balance.

It’s a low-medium impact workout that you can really feel working. We do moves in the centre, on the barre, on the floor and often finish the class with a quick balletic dance routine. Buns and leotards are definitely not mandatory (unless of course you want to wear them!).

Wednesdays 7:30 – 8:15PM @ Ruskin Leisure


Admittedly this is more tapping than toning! But we often get a sweat on and have that lovely little burn the next day that lets you know you’ve done some exercise. Remembering all those steps and rhythms is certainly a workout for the brain too!

This is definitely a class for those who don’t take themselves too seriously. We have a good giggle and tap to lots of different styles of music. There’s normally also an annual opportunity to get on stage (but that’s not compulsory!).
