Classes & Lessons at Dianne Ross Dance Academy

Dianne is pleased to run her classes and lessons following The Council for Dance Education and Training “Code of Professional Conduct for Teachers of Dance”.

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 pupils are trained to Examination Standard – however, entrance into Examinations is not compulsory (33 years 100% examination pass rate).

Pupils are entered into Examinations with either The United Kingdom Alliance of Professional Teachers of Dancing or The Northern Counties Dance Teachers Association – both Associations being Corporate Members of The British Dance Council, The Central Council for Physical Recreation and The Stage Dance Council International.

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.

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.
