Classical Ballet   
At BAD we specialise in training Classical Ballet, with teachers who are qualified through the Royal Academy of Dance. We teach students from age 5 onward and offer classes in both exam and creative work. 
 Jazz classes are available for students aged 5 and older. The emphasis in Jazz class is on fun, energetic movement that incorporates flexibility, strength and performance. Assignment to classes is dependant on the age of the student.


Acrobatics focuses on tumbling and tricks and the strength and flexibility required to achieve these. Our teachers are qualified through the Acrobatic Arts syllabus and students will be able to complete exams if they wish. 'Acro' is offered to students aged 5 and up. Also on offer our new ability-based Tumbling class, this class allows students to work on more advanced tricks from the Acrobatic Arts syllabus e.g. aerials and back handsprings on an Air Track. To do this class students are required to already attend one acrobatic class a week and have to be able to perform a cartwheel and front/limber walkover without a spot.


Hip Hop

Hip Hop classes are available for students aged 5 and up. These classes focus on a 'street' style of dance, are high energy and lots of fun. Some elements of Break Dancing are also incorporated into these classes.


Modern, or lyrical, is a growing style in the professional world and uses many of the technical elements of Classical Ballet. At BAD it is one of our most popular classes and we offer modern to students aged 9 and over.




Contemporary is an abstract art form and can be depicted in many ways. This genre is touched on in our Modern classes and solo lessons are also available.
