Zapphire School of Dance, Music, Aerial & Cheer Opened in 2012.
"To nurture and develop the creative potential of young children through the joy of Dance & Performance"
Welcome to Zapphire School of Dance
Welcome to Zapphire School Of Dance! Our vision is to be a safe place for children and young adults where classes are taught with care, encouragement, attention to detail and most importantly - FUN! We LOVE to smile and we never lose sight of the fact that dance should be FUN! We are professional without being too strict or pushy - we work hard to earn the respect of our students, we don't demand it. Focusing not only on our students dancing development, we pay particular attention to the social opportunities dance provides, setting us aside from many other dance schools. It is amazing how many parents realise the positive change in their children’s confidence levels after a relatively short space of time attending our classes which is something we are really quite proud of. We are extremely passionate about everything we do which is reflected in the quality of service we offer. We aim to be the very best at what we do.
Zapphire School of Dance, Music & Aerial Arts is a Fresh, Thriving and exciting dance school with huge amounts of performing opportunities for children including performance theatre opportunities, Awards with IDR, Examinations with ISTD, IDTA, UKCA Cheerleading Events and Performances, Singing Examinations and Festivals, Aerial Events & more.
As well as performing, we have lots of other events such as our Summer Schools, Workshops, Christmas Lights Event, Bring A Friend to Dance Day, Movie Nights, Crazy Hair Day & plenty of family orientated events for the family to enjoy.
Classes are available for children starting at 18 months. For our youngest dancers, we build confidence, improve coordination and motor skills that will benefit students for a lifetime in classes. We follow a EYFS Curriculum called 'Melody Bear®'. The classes progress and children age 10 and up can also benefit from the programme. You can find information on our Melody Bear classes on our website.
As students grow they learn Ballet, Tap, Cheerleading, Commercial Dance, Aerial and then move on to add Contemporary/Lyrical, Acrobatics, and Hip-Hop.
Principal of the school, Charlotte also runs very successful private singing lessons on a weekly basis next to the studio.
If you are looking for a professional, energetic yet relaxed approach and wish to have fun, build confidence and make long life friends, Zapphire School of Dance is for you. Should you not find what you are looking for on this site, please do not hesitate to get in touch for a chat, we'd love to hear from you!
