First Dance Steps

Harrogate's Premier Dance School

Students are taught from Pre-assessment (3 years old - boys and girls) through to full advance in many subjects, including: Classical Ballet, Tap, Jazz, Hip Hop, Singing, Drama and Musical Theatre.

We endeavour to make dance and theatre a happy experience for all our students, teaching with care and understanding.

We believe dance can build character and confidence as well as co-ordination, rhythm, strength and flexibility. Dance and theatre arts help stimulate us in ways other activities cannot, it helps socially, athletically and mentally.

If students are talented and would like to further their career in dance or theatre, we train them for auditions for the Royal Ballet School and all leading vocational schools and dance companies.

We strive for excellence in dance and theatre training and hope to give our students a love of dance and music within the theatre, whether it is just for pure enjoyment, or to make it their career in life.
