Blaze Dance Academy

Let us bring out the best in your child.

Blaze Dance Academy was founded in 2011 following numerous requests for high quality dance classes for children of all ages.

To date, the pupils have attained a 100% pass rate in their BATD examinations and, most recently, 97% of the pupils achieved Highly Commended and Honours results - a fact we are incredibly proud of and aim to maintain.

Summer terms are spent working towards our annual summer performance and winter terms are focused on progressing through the BATD syllabus. To date, Blaze Dance Academy pupils have performed in Flash Mobs, pop up cinema events and our annual performances as well as achieving great exam results.

STARLITE

A fun, creative class to introduce pre-school children to the basics of ballet & tap dance.

Suitable for children aged 2-4 years.

BALLET

Arguably the style from which all others develop, ballet will develop grace, poise, strength and stamina as well as providing a great base knowledge of dance.

1st Steps, Junior & Senior classes available

TAP

Starting with simple beats and eventually building up to complex rhythms, this class develops musicality and co-ordination whilst developing strong ankles and joints.

1st Steps, Junior & Senior classes available

MODERN

Modern is a fun, yet technically precise, dance style, often used in musical theatre. It involves isolations, high kicks, turns and jumps to create a physically demanding yet enjoyable dance class.

1st Steps, Junior & Senior classes available

CONTEMPORARY

Contemporary requires fluid movements, control and creativity. It is the style of dance taught in most dance college and university courses so is essential for those hoping for a career in dance.

Junior and Senior classes available

STREET DANCE

Street Dance covers most urban dance styles including hip hop and breakdance. It is high energy and high impact and demands lots of attitude.

Junior and Senior classes available

UNIFORM

Uniform is an essential part of studying dance. The correct clothing & footwear not only keeps dancers safe from injury but allows teachers to see positions clearly, allowing them to give corrections and advice.

Uniforms must be worn for all classes after an initial 1 month settling in time. All clothing should be ordered directly from Blaze Dance Academy.
