‘’GROOVE IN TUNE’’ is the perfect opportunity to take children ages from 2 - 5 years on a journey and let them explore creative movement and song, through their own play. Whilst being taught technique and basic dance skills without knowing it as well as rhythm and keeping fit. We explore through fun songs and movement that they may be familiar with. ’’GROOVE IN TUNE’’ is easy to associate with and for all ages and stages and aids creative stimulation and social development.

  • My daughter Isabel has attended Dancesteps for the past five years. Miss Kerry has taught and guided Isabel successfully through her exams and four wonderful shows. Isabel has made many friends and her love of dancing from ballet to ballroom grows stronger each year. Isabel loves her lessons and looks forward to them each week. Her confidence in her abilities has been carefully nurtured by Miss Kerry, who brings out the very best in Isabel.

  • Our eldest daughter has now been at Dancesteps for 3 years and our youngest for 18 months approx. They both absolutely love it and are constantly dancing around the house and forever doing their own ‘shows’ for any ‘willing’ viewers! Apart from the hours of fun and exercise, for our eldest it has also meant, great strides in confidence for her – the teachers have been wonderfully patient and understanding in nurturing and guiding her – thank you!

    In addition to the pleasure that we get from watching them both grow in self esteem and dancing ability, we can also feel confident in the fact that they are getting expert tuition in a safe and fun environment. We look forward with anticipation to this years (real!) show, and this year for the first time, will have ‘twice’ as much to be thankful for!!! Thank you Dancesteps! x

  • Katie has been a student at Miss Kerry's school for 4 years, and in that time she has gained so much confidence! Miss Kerry & Miss Emily put so much time and effort into nurturing each student and ensuring they reach their own full potential whatever level they are at. The environment which the children learn in is warm, fun and friendly and the students have a lovely bond. The annual show is amazing, and I'm sure every parent is as proud as I am watching how much the children have grown and learnt through the year. Katie looks forward to each lesson and I know whilst she is having fun she is getting expert tuition .

  • My son and daughter have been dancing at Dancesteps for six and nine years respectively. Miss Kerry?s exacting standards and enthusiasm has meant that neither has attained less than a merit in their exams. Both especially enjoy the excitement and chance to show off their all their hard work when it?s time for the annual Dancesteps Show.

  • My daughter Grace is seven and has attended Dance Steps since she was three. Starting out with tap and ballet classes she has now progressed to include disco, river dance and ballroom. Grace is currently working towards her grade two ballet exam and while challenging she enjoys the whole experience. The children receive excellent lessons, encouragement & support from Miss Kerry. The school has a friendly welcoming atmosphere that radiates from the staff and children. However as a parent the most important thing to me is that Grace loves going to Dance Steps she has made alot of friends, she enjoys her lessons loves her teachers, and her dance skills are improving all the time. Her dancing is not only helping to keep her fit and healthy, attending her lessons and the experience of taking part in the school shows which she loves is also giving her confidence.

  • Kleio joined Dancesteps when she was just two years old and was hooked from the very beginning. From my observations over the last five years I could wax lyrical about your sympathetic approach, being impressed by your teaching style and the attention and care you show to each and every child. However, it takes a special individual to have such an impact on not only the aspirations and dreams of one little child, but actually to influence and guide her as she learns about the world and develops her character. Kleio not only views you as a teacher, she respects and looks up to you and that’s an innate ability that is seldom found. I would personally like to thank you for all you have done and look forward to Kleio’s continued technical and personal development under your tutelage.

  • I love going to Dancesteps! Miss Kerry is the best teacher; she always helps me and makes me feel proud of myself. I have great fun and I have lots of dancing friends, but my favourite thing is the show, which always makes my mum cry! When I grow up I want to be a ballerina! Thank you Miss Kerry,

  • My daughter Olivia has been coming to Dancesteps for about 2 years, she attends ballet and tap. Olivia loves dancing and Miss Kerry keeps the dancing fun while learning new things. The shows that Dancesteps put on are excellent with everyone working so hard, costumes, dances and the music are brilliantly entertaining.

  • Dancesteps has been an invaluable part of my young daughters lives. I have 2 daughters aged 13 and 10 they have both attended Dancesteps since they were 4 years old. During the last 10 years they have grown into confident, competent, disciplined dancers to the credit of Miss Kerry. Miss Kerry has always provided high quality teaching to an exemplary standard in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere and both my girls thoroughly enjoy their dance classes and the annual dance show. They have made a great many friends at Dancesteps and have been successful in all their dance examinations. I cannot thank Miss Kerry  enough for the support, encouragement and professionalism that she has always shown myself and my daughters.
