Bumble Ballerinas and Tiny Tappers

Our pre-school classes are a mixture of tap and ballet, allowing children as young as 2 to try dancing for the first time. Classes are taught alongside Bumble Ballerina, with fun music, games and learning the basis of dance.

Basic understanding of movement, rhythm are taught in these classes, with the use of lots of props, imagination and exciting adventures!

Classical Ballet

Ballet is believed to be the foundation of all dance, and can be seen as crucial dance principle for any dancer in training. Ballet is taught from pre-school classes, and is then continued through the Imperial Ballet grades.

Strength, poise, control, technique and musicality are just some of the elements which you will learn when taking part in Ballet classes.


A very popular class at NJDS! The class purely focuses on strengthening and limbering, whilst including fundamental skills that any dancer will need. Combining elements of dance and gymnastics, this is a great class for students who want to improve their flexibility, strength, technique and tricks.

Creating sounds with your feet, what more could you want! Tap follows the ISTD syllabus, which builds up competent tappers, learning the different rhythms, technical tapping, all whilst dancing. Tap improves co-ordination and brain power, allowing you to develop as a precise and brilliant dancer.


Modern is a great way to start dancing as it allows children to express themselves and explore how their bodies can move. We follow the graded examinations, which provide children with a solid foundation for all dance styles 


Jazz dance is taught as a syllabus free class at NJDS, and is a great class to take to have fun and to better your technique. The class works on strength, flexibility, technique, turns, kicks and leaps and a routine. Jazz classes also work towards local events and showcases, focusing on the importance of performing and improving confidence.

Private Classes

Private classes are an excellent way to improve. With one-to-one training, your child will come on leaps and bounds. You may be working towards an exam, event or audition, or you may just want to improve overall. Those who are thinking about continuing dance as a profession should consider private tuition.
