Early Years Dance Programme

The DN Ducklings Early Years Dance Programme is tailored for kids from Preschool age 3 to Primary 1. Each class combines multiple dance styles which provides varied and exciting content that is perfect for stimulating shorter concentration spans of young minds. Our fun loving mascot Della Duck makes appearances at events and occasionally comes to meet the students at class to check out their new moves!

Upper School

Primary 3 – Age 17

Our Upper School operates classes for kids from Primary 2 right up to 17 years. From this age, classes are generally taken in individual disciplines as students work towards grades and class awards in each discipline.

Adult Classes

Ages 18+ and 50+

Our popular adult classes now have the venue they deserve. We’re so excited to bring our adult classes to DN Studios South Gyle where adult dancers will beneift most for the extra space and height of the studios.

Boyz Dance

Age 8 years +

With the extra timetable space we’re delighted to include classes specifically for boys. Dance is a heavily female dominated activity, so these classes give boys the opportunity to participate in dance with their peers, without feeling out numbers or out of place.
