At Louise Jane School of Dance, classes are offered in Imperial Classical Ballet, Modern Theatre Dance, Tap, Disco Freestyle, Commercial and Acrobatic Arts.

We follow the ISTD (Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing) syllabus in the majority of our classes as well as non syllabus work.

ISTD Examinations

Students are encouraged to take ISTD examinations if they would like to. The examination structure of the ISTD is designed to cater equally for those who wish to progress to making dance their profession, either as a performer or dance teacher, and for those pursuing dance purely as a leisure activity.

So far at Louise Jane School of Dance, we have 100% pass rate with all students receiving 80% and above for their examinations.

Disco Freestyle and Rock n Roll Competitions

Students are invited to take part in Disco Freestyle and Rock n Roll competitions throughout the year and compete for the chance to gain a place at the grand finals event at the end of each year. Competitions take place in different areas around the UK.

Competitions are a fantastic way of improving student’s confidence and it is extremely rewarding for them when all their hard work pays off and they get to bring home a medal or trophy. Students are able to compete solo, with a partner, or as part of a team.

Local events

Louise Jane School of Dance are always pleased to take part in local events and festivals.
