Autumn 2019 - Beginner Short Courses

This Autumn we'll be running a series of beginner short courses. These must be booked in advance as places are limited so please contact us to book your place.

  • Adult Beginner Tap, Thursdays 20:00 starting 19th September

Have you seen people tap dance on stage? Think ‘no way can I do that!!’. Think again!

All tap dancing starts with learning the basics and this is what the beginner course aims to do. In this four week course you will learn about basic technique and some fundamental steps that form the building blocks for all types of tap dancing. At the end of the course, you will be able to perform a simple, short routine joining together the things you have learnt.

Why not give it a go! This is a 4 week course that begins on Thursday 19th September at 20:00 and costs £20 for the 4 weeks.


Using techniques from the world-famous Progressing Ballet Technique and Pilates, this 3-week course will give you training exercises to do at home to improve;

  • Posture
  • Muscle memory
  • Alignment
  • Weight placement
  • Stability

It is open to anyone, of any age who wishes to look in more detail at how to improve their dance - whatever style.

Please wear tight comfortable clothing, barefoot and if you have one, please bring a gym ball (it can be inflated here) and theraband (there will be some to borrow during the sessions).

The course will be led by Anna Olejnicki, a Fellowship Ballet teacher (Dist.) with the IDTA, and a registered teacher with the RAD and PBT. This is a 3 week course that begins on Friday 11th October at 18:00 and costs £15 for the 3 weeks.


This will be another 4 week course aimed at beginners or those who haven't sung for a while and want to get back into things! Details tbc shortly.
