Our children's dance classes start from 9 months with our Baby BoJangles classes of music, percussion and movement. We offer classes for all children from 1 year upwards leading to examinations with the Northern Counties Dance Teachers Association (NCDTA). This has led many of our pupils to further training in London stage schools and professional careers in the performing arts. Indeed our dancers have taken 1st and 2nd places in the prestigious Miss Dance of Great Britain contest in the same year. We also offer training to dance teachers to qualify them in Dance and Fitness. The school's principal, Suzanne Stuart, is an Examiner and fellow member of the NCDTA and IDTA in all the subjects she teaches and she undertakes choreography for professional stage companies and annual performances for her own school's musical theatre classes .
