ABOUT HAZLEMERE SCHOOL OF DANCING

Established over 40 years ago, Hazlemere School of Dancing offers a range of dance styles including Ballet, Tap, Modern, Pre-School Ballet and Adult classes. We offer IDTA exams in Ballet, Tap and Freestyle, as well as putting on a school show every two years at The Desborough Theatre in Maidenhead. Classes are run by experienced teachers and we aim to cater for all levels and abilities from age 3 upwards. Our Pre-School Ballet classes offer a great introduction to the technique of Ballet, through fun games and exercises, which help to develop rhythm, co-ordination, motor skills, social skills and confidence.
