A Quick Guide

KLDA's dance journey starts with 

My First Ballet Class 
(Ages 2.5 - 3)

We start with the style Ballet as it is a great way to build the foundations of all styles of dance.

This class is 30 minutes long.

After a year of partaking in this class we invite students to the 

Introduction To... Classes

(Ages 3.5 - 5)

which introduces Modern & Tap to the mix, alongside Ballet.

All these classes will help your children with their first steps into the world of dance & will also build their listening, concentration, focus, posture & social skills, as well as continue to develop both their gross & fine motor skills.

Here we put all 3 classes back to back into a hour & half slot, to make learning fun & interesting for students but also to help parents. As children are at Nursery/Reception age, we find that they are absolutely fine with this length of time, although it is not compulsory to attend all 3 classes. It also sets the students up in preparation for Reception at school, where they are required to concentrate for much longer periods of time.

From age 5 we offer classes working towards examinations with the

Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing (ISTD) 

Imperial BalletModern TheatreTap DanceNational Dance, Contemporary Dance

For our students who reach Grade 6 & onwards theses exams can contribute UCAS points towards applications for higher education.

These exams are not compulsory & students can still partake in these classes even if they do not wish to take them. 

We also offer

Groovers Classes

Mini (Ages 3.5-6)     Junior (Ages 7-10)     Inter (Ages 11-14)         Senior (Ages 14+)

These classes bring together a mix of free dance styles including

Jazz, Lyrical, Commercial, Contemporary & Musical Theatre alongside Dance Conditioning Techniques.

This is a perfect way to explore new styles in a free, relaxed way whilst still developing a strong technique that will support the students in other dance styles.

Finally, we have a a great range of

Adult Dance Classes

Ballet (Beginner-Inter)

Jazz (Beginner-Inter)

Tap (Beginner) & (Inter/Advanced)

National (All Levels)

which are suited to those who use to dance & wish to still be part of the magical world or dance, fitness fun or those who wish to learn a new skill. Many find they are a great way to get moving & to unwind at the end of a long day.

"A caring & inspiring teacher. A welcoming atmosphere for both adults & children."
