Our goal is to engage young children’s imagination and instil a love of dance. Dance is an art form and children are encouraged to pursue which ever form of dance they enjoy.

We follow the voluntary code of conduct set by the Council for Dance Education and Training (please refer to www.cdet.org.uk for more information).

We promote equal opportunities and take a positive approach to learning, building confidence in a supportive environment.

We follow assessment criteria set by the Royal Academy of Dance and Lafour Prima Dance.
