Our Pre-school Introductory Classes are fun, lively and creative set in an environment that allows students to explore Performing Arts for the first time! DPA has a unique approach to teaching preschool aged children, placing an emphasis on enjoyment and expression.

With weekly themes our classes keep our young dancers and performers active and creatively engaged. Children are encouraged to interact and share ideas, improve communication, listening and social skills and have fun together.

Little ones will be taught basic movement and musicality skills with the use of imagery or ‘make believe’. They will become a clown, a superhero, a fairy or a pirate. We use lots of props such as magic wands, sponges, flowers, ribbons and musical instruments, we have themed colour and number weeks and all is delivered in a safe environment. We aim to develop confidence and develop a good self- image in a positive learning environment for your child.

Classes on offer include:

  • Music Makers
  • Movers & Groovers
  • Pre-Primary Ballet
  • Pre-Primary Modern
  • Pre-Primary Tap
  • Teeny Toes Baby Ballet
  • Tiptoe Ballet
  • Tiptoe Music & Drama

Praise For DPA

My 2 children have been attending DPA for a year. They have been welcomed into this nurturing environment like family. They have grown in confidence and love the very many classes they attend. The staff are amazing, caring and encouraging. I cannot recommend highly enough.

Sophy E

What we both love about DPA is the support all students give each other and how they all celebrate individual or group successes regardless of their own involvement. She has made many friends and considers herself very much one of the DPA family.

DPA is amazing and my second family, we work through struggles and learn how to be better performers because of it.
