Ballet is the foundation from which nearly all dance styles have developed. It requires strong technique, athleticism and grace.
Hitchin School of Dance has a tradition of excellence in Ballet instruction.
We have classes from the age of three, up to our friendly and popular adult class.
Tap is one of the most recognised forms of dance.
Ann Miller, Fred Astaire and Gene Kelly are just some of the dancers who have influenced the tap we see today.
We have tap classes from the age of four, up to our fun and popular adult class.
Modern develops balance, posture, strength and flexibility as well as perfecting turns, leaps and kicks.
Our classes start from the age of four.
