WELCOME TO

NEWMARKET

SCHOOL OF

DANCE

With studios in Suffolk and Cambridgeshire, we are a fully inclusive dance school offering a wide range of classes to fulfill all dance needs for students from 18 months through to adult.

Our ethos is to provide a friendly, happy and professional environment in which all our students can feel inspired and reach their full potential.

 

OUR DANCE STORY

Newmarket School of Dance is a friendly and welcoming school, providing classes in Ballet, Tap, Modern, Hip Hop and
Musical Theatre at our Newmarket and Soham studios.

 

Our classes are designed for all, from those wishing to dance simply for the fun and social aspect, to those who would like to have a dance related career in the future. 

 

We provide a professional, caring and nurturing environment which allows all of our students to reach their full potential, developing their technique, creativity, artistry and confidence whilst having fun and developing new friendships.

 

Our dedicated teachers, who are CRB checked and fully qualified, strive to inspire students with their passion for dance encouraging them to have a life long love of dance. We recognise that students will progress at varying rates and as such treat all as individuals. In turn we believe this allows all of our students to have a great sense of achievement and be the best they can be. As well as holding weekly classes, the school also offers summer schools, workshops, examinations, performance opportunities and excursions to professional performances.

 

We are a Recognised School with the Council for Dance Education and Training and have been awarded the Council’s certificate of good professional practice. Schools awarded the CDET’s Recognised School Award demonstrate to students, parents and guardians that they adhere to the standards demanded by the industry; standards designed to protect and safeguard young people whether dancing for leisure or with an eye to a career in the profession, meaning you can be assured your child is in safe hands at our dance school.

EXAMS & PERFORMANCES

We regularly hold RAD Ballet exams, and ISTD exams in Tap and Modern and we will soon be offering Trinity College London exams for Musical Theatre students.

 

Students are entered at the teacher’s discretion, and although these are not compulsory we strongly encourage students to take part for the many benefits they provide.

 

Examinations are a great way for students to measure their progress, whilst helping to instill a sense of pride in their work and providing a great sense of achievement, which in turn improves self-confidence.

The school regularly offers students performances opportunities, including a bi-annual full scale show, the latest of which took place in front of sell out audiences at The Apex in Bury

GET THE GEAR

Dance is a physical activity and as such it is essential for students safety that they have the correct uniform. For parents convenience we have a dance shop, which is open at various points during the term, and order forms can also be completed. Please note you do not have to buy your uniform through us but please ensure the correct items are purchased. Please also note we allow
Pre-School Dance students to wear any comfortable clothing/fairy outfits etc, however many opt for the uniform.
