About the dance classes we offer for youth

We offer a wide range of dance classes for youth in Edinburgh, including Ballet, Tap, Modern, Jazz, Pointe, Acro and Contemporary. We also offer Musical Theatre classes and dance workshops. When children get a little older and more independent, around 9 years old, our classes become less based on age and more based on experience and ability. Our classes for youth are categorised based on the dance style and the level within that style rather than by age. 

If you already know what level your child is dancing at in a given style, then great, simply choose your preferred dance style below and explore the different class options and branch timetables. However, if you aren’t sure, you should get in touch for a consultation so we can help you find the right class for your childs age, ability and experience. No matter your background or experience, we’ll help find the perfect class for you.
