Junior’s Dance Classes

Dance classes in Edinburgh for kids aged 7 & 8 years

Let your inner dancer shine

About our classes

Dancing is a great way for kids to stay active, meet new friends, stimulate creativity and have fun. For kids between the ages of 7-8 years we offer Dance Acro, as well as our two signature combination classes which include Ballet, Tap and Modern Dance in a single class.

Focus is on developing elementary skills in technique, vocabulary and choreography across the three dance genres. Students benefit from the different skills picked up in each style and the variety is perfect for the shorter attention span of children in this age group.

Junior (7s)

Ballet, Tap & Jazz

A combination class which includes 30 minutes of Ballet, Tap and Jazz with 30 minutes for each style in a 90-minute class.

This class is for the younger Juniors age 7 and offers a diverse mix of styles. It’s a key transitional class for those moving up from Minis who are now gaining a stronger identity and becoming clearer on dance style preferences.

Junior (8s)

Ballet & Tap

Junior Ballet & Tap is a 90-minute class which includes 45 minutes for each dance style. Ballet and tap are classic styles which embed great technique that underpins most modern styles.

This class is for the older Juniors from age 8. By now students are increasing strength, concentration and capability meaning more time can be dedicated to each style.
