Dance class 

Here at The Drama House, we don't feel students should have to choose just one dance genre - we like to introduce them to a wide variety of Dance styles and skills so as to develop rhythm and confidence. Hip Hop, Musical Theatre, Jazz, Contemporary and Ballet will all be explored through your weekly Dance class. We encourage students to use dance as a medium for self expression - not to mention a great way to exercise!
