Performance Opportunities

Throughout the year students will be able to take part in formal and informal performance opportunities. We will be performing at the Floral Pavilion this July as part of the Create Dance Wirral Showcase.


A uniform helps ensure safe practice in dance class and encourages children perform the steps correctly and safely.

Each class has a uniform that can be purchased through Next Step Dance.


We will offer the opportunity to work towards IDTA exams as this is a great way to build confidence and mark achievement by gaining a certificate or medal.  IDTA are an internationally recognised awarding body and exams can be taken in Tap, Ballet, Modern Jazz and Theatre Craft.  Exams are optional.

We also do informal and relaxed class assessments which are a great way to mark and reward each child’s achievement.

Hairstyle and Jewellery 

For your child’s safety please tie long hair back in a ponytail or bun and make sure no jewellery is worn during class.
