Ballet, Tap, Modern Jazz, Contemporary and Disco

The SCL School of Dance specialises classes in Ballet, Tap, Freestyle Disco, Modern Jazz and Contemporary Dance. Classes are availible for ages 2 ½ upwards. Students prepare for exams with the IDTA with which we have a 100% pass rate, regular shows at The Lowry Theatre, with some students progress into Theatre Dance Competitions

The Baby Ballet and Disco classes are a great introduction into dance and provide the dancers with the basics of Ballet and Disco whilst utilising dance scarves, ribbons and pom poms to make a fun filled class. As the dance students progress into the next classes they focus more on technique working towards exams with the International Dance Teachers Association.

The 4-5 year old classes work on Rosettes and Group Awards to build confidence and self esteem and the older groups work on graded exams that are OFQUAL recognised.

The school offers the oportunity for students to progress into taking part in Theatre and Contemporary Dance Competitions.

All classes provide a great combination of establishing a solid grounding and understanding of dance technique in a fun and friendly environment.
