5 Years to Advanced Levels
"Our students love doing thier best, working towards and achievng their goals."
Ballet is the most beneficial form of dance for body placement. We absolutely recommend this style for any student who wishes to advance and improve technique. Ballet is regarded as one of the most artistic forms of dance and has a fascinating history. Its origins are traced back to the Italian Renaissance; the art form moving to France in the 16th century into the French Royal Court following the marriage of an Italian aristocrat to King Henry II of France.
One of the greatest aspects of learning ballet is it teaches children more than just how to perform, it teaches focus and commitment through accomplishment. This style of dance requires hard work. As it is a technical discipline, ballet requires dedication and we recommend two classes of ballet a week.
Opportunities for both the young enthusiastic dancer and aspiring professional student are available in our Royal Academy of Dance syllabus. We offer private coaching and open classes for boys and girls from primary to advanced levels. Students at the required age and standard are invited to complete exams.
Lyrical & Contemporary
7 Years to Senior and Pre-Professional
“The freedom of the contemporary style always leaves dancers with that certain ‘feel good’ emotion”
Lyrical and Contemporary Teacher
Influenced by classical ballet and modern dance, contemporary extends classical boundaries, offering the dancer emotional freedom and expression through movement.
Technique is taken from classical ballet although it allows a greater range of freedom in body movement. Contemporary dance classes are fun and encourage versatility and improvisation.
Often performed in bare feet, this genre focuses on floor work and can be married with many different music styles. Choreography is usually inspired by characters and stories.
6 Years to Senior
Danzart offers private tuition for solo competitions and in classical ballet, jazz tap and contemporary.
Our team of dedicated and highly regarded private coaches extend dance training through weekly group classes and private instruction. Dancers will find they improve their technique, passion and confidence through one on one attention. Private lessons help for a deeper understanding of style and allow for extra feedback.

"Our tap students love making noise! They get to work as a team and create sound together”
Tap is a fun, technical and rhythmically challenging style of dance. Students gain a greater understanding of musicality and learn discipline and team work through this method. Our tap dance classes help develop balance and co-ordination and are a great way to express creativity.
Danzart incorporates the latest street tap styles into our regular tap classes. Tap is a great foundation for hip hop. The style develops a great sense of rhythm and timing. It requires focus on the constant change in movement and recalling steps and patterns.
