  • We believe that dancers grow in skill and character when they participate in competitions.
  • We encourage our competition-ready dancers to participate in 4 local competitions per year.
  • We are affiliated with the British Association of Teachers of Dance (BATD) for medals tests and teacher training.
  • We strive to have an open, respectful, and focused learning environment.
