• Dance and Circus and Ballet classes for children from 2 to 6 years of age

  • A magical, imaginative dance and ballet class together with your Mummy or carer dancing by your side.

    Each one of our Mummy & Me - Dance & Ballet classes is themed with a favourite storybook and concept.  Using a wide variety of music, we begin with a warm up, adding some basic ballet exercises for the budding ballerinas.   After quickly reading our story, we begin moving and making different shapes, showing emotions, levels, mime and dynamics to replicate the characters, theme or concept of the story.  We add lots of giggles, sometimes bubbles, ribbons or shakers and every class we build an obstacle course, with a balance beam, stepping stones, hoops and tunnels.  Children all go home each week with a themed colouring sheet.

    For 2 year olds until they're ready for independent learning in READY SET DANCE, READY SET BALLET or the Little Monkeys circus classes.

  • READY SET DANCE is a combo class that includes JAZZ, TAP, HIP HOP, SINGING and MUSIC!
    •  One whole hour of FUN for girls and boys  
    •  JAZZ – Develop muscle strength, control and balance and achieve coordination milestones like skipping before going to school.
    • HIP HOP – Bust out some ice cold moves just like Freeze to our original hip hop tracks.
    • MUSIC. – Develop the musical ear, dynamics and tempo while having fun with instruments and the parachute.
    • SINGING – Sing like Twirl and build confidence singing on the microphone
    • TAP – Learn the fundamentals of tap in a playful and creative way splashing in puddles and shuffling like a penguin.

    All these ingredients together create a super hour of fun!

  • Little Monkeys Circus Classes for Creating Confident Kids
  • Roll up!  Roll up!  We’re extremely excited to announce that this year we’ll be introducing a new and exciting preschool program into our curriculum called Little Monkeys especially for those kids that love hanging around!

    The Little Monkeys Circus Classes are super fun. Your little one will gain confidence and learn new skills. Classes include:-

    • Basic tumbling
    • Interactive circuits
    • Balance beams
    • Silks
    • Juggling
    • Hula hoops and more
    • One teacher to every 6 Little Monkeys.
  • My daughter, was just 2 when we first introduced her to Dancehouse. Although she was a little dubious about the class to start with and required lots of cuddles and reassuring, she started to grow in confidence and ability. Asha, who has now turned 3 years, absolutely loves it!
    It develops her coordination, concentration and imagination with dancing, story telling and apparatus. It has been a real pleasure to watch her and the other children in the class grow in confidence and ability as the year has passed.
    I highly recommend Ready Set Dance and Ready Set Ballet to anyone as a fun and beneficial activity for little children. And I recommend Dancehouse as a whole to children of any level to help teach respect, team work, commitment and an all round love of dance.
