Classical Ballet

from pre-school, all ages all abilities


Classical Ballet classes provides a fully comprehensive training for children and young adults who wish to dance for pleasure and those interested in a professional training.


Melody Movement - Classes with parent/guardian participation.


Come and join in with Melody Bear. Our classes are a fun introduction for young children to the world of dance.


“Melody Movement ”offers a creative, inspiring and progressive programme of

dance classes which introduce children from as young as 18 months to dance and movement using the natural actions of the body such as running, skipping, hopping and galloping.  It is designed to help children’s physical development, co-ordination, creativity and self-expression in a dance format.  Beginning with “Little Bear Feet” children can progress through Melody Bears Levels 1 & 2 with the help of “Melody Bear®” and her male counterpart “Milligan Bear”.
