Modern lessons for children

Modern dancing is a great compliment to ballet and allows children to push the types of movement they can include in routines that ballet alone does not allow for. Our modern lessons are engaging and friendly and we actively encourage the children to pursue their own creations in addition to the syllabus we teach when working towards grades or performances.


We teach to the ISTD (Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing) standards and look to progress our students through their grades at a pace that suits them. We will not push our students just for the sake of taking an exam, we’d rather find a balance where pupils can progress and enjoy their dancing at the same time.


We believe in offering our students the chance to perform, which is why the school holds a show in a theatre every other year. This is a great opportunity for those children who want to get involved to dance on a stage in a full performance, but of course it isn’t compulsory as we understand that some children may find this too nerve wracking. But that doesn’t mean they can’t be involved in the classes and rehearsals anyway.

Imperial Society of Teachers of Dance

We are proud to be a dance school that teaches ballet to ISTD (Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing) standards and our children have the option, when ready, to take graded exams.


Our classes all take place at either Soberton or Hambledon village halls in Hampshire. Full addresses for these halls can be found on the contact page.

If you are interested in your child starting modern lessons with us then please get in touch and we would be delighted to arrange a free taster session for them.

Please note that we do not take walk-ins at any of our classes. If you’re interested in you or your child attending a class please contact us to arrange a taster session or to enrol.
