What a brilliant start to the school year we have had! It has been so lovely to see all pupils thriving in their dance classes and there has been some great progress made by pupils!

Watching Classes

We are really looking forward to welcoming parents back to watch classes at the end of this term. This is a great opportunity for you to see your child in action and see the progress they have made this term.

Due to rising Covid numbers we have however decided to do this very cautiously and will be limiting numbers on how many adults can watch per child. You will be informed by email with more information on this nearer the time along with our Covid mitigations that we will have in place too.

Taster classes

We do still have spaces in some of our classes so if your child wishes to try a new style of dance then please get in touch to get a taster booked in ahead of the end of the term. Perfect chance to try a class before the New Year.

Lyrical, Musical Theatre, Tap, Ballet and Modern classes available!

Your recommendations to friends are always much appreciated so please feel free to pass on our details to anyone who you think may be interesting in joining us for a class!


We kindly remind you that if your child ever wishes to stop a class with us that 4 weeks notice is provided please. This allows us time to offer the space to someone else on our waiting lists and ensures that hall costs, teacher expenses are covered. Your place in class will be rolled over each term unless we are told otherwise so it is vital that you let us know in advance please.

Here’s to a great end to 2021 and lots of exciting opportunities for the New Year!

Sophie and the SLH team Zara, Ellie and Lucy xx
