Abbey Dance offers a wide selection of classes in different genres, covering all ages from Pre-School.
Examinations follow the syllabus of the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing. Pupils are encouraged to work towards taking exams, which provide a goal to work towards, an opportunity to show off what has been learned, and a way to check progress.
Our aim at Abbey Dance is to introduce children and young adults to a love of dance: teaching and developing artistry, performance, technique, and safe dance practice. We aspire to build confident young people who share our interest and enthusiasm in the performing arts, whether for enjoyment or as a career option.
