Classes & Lessons at Dianne Ross Dance Academy

Classes are kept to a size appropriate to the levels and styles being taught – students always being of a compatable age and/or standard.

All children are trained to Examination Standard – however, entrance into Examinations is not compulsory (35 years 100% examination pass rate).

Pupils are entered into Examinations with Northern Counties Dance Teachers Association Limited, a corporate member of the British Dance Council, Theatre Dance Council International and the Sport and Recreation Alliance.

All class fees are to be paid monthly in advance during the Educational School Terms and weekly on attendance during School Holidays.

Adult classes are for social dancers only and do not involve training for examinations. Classes are payable weekly on attendance.

If you would prefer individual tuition (private lessons) these can be arranged (subject to availability). For pupils under the age of 18 years it is necessary for a parent or other adult to be present when the lesson is taking place.
