Adult Dance

Northamptonshire School of Dance has taught adults to dance for the last 21 years.  Whether you are completely new to dance or are returning to a childhood hobby, you are very welcome to come along to our friendly lessons for the over 18s, with no upper age limit.

We currently offer Adult classes in BALLET and TAP.

For PILATES classes please see our website:

We are accredited by the Royal Academy of Dance and International Society of Teachers’ Association

The benefits of adult ballet include:

  • improved strength, stamina, control, coordination and endurance
  • awareness of balance and posture
  • flexibility and range of motion
  • enjoyment of dancing to varied classical and modern music
  • self-motivation leading to self-appreciation and increased confidence
  • making new friends and having loads of fun!

Northamptonshire School of Dance teachers offer RAD and IDTA exams.

Ballet is taught by Hayley and Tap by Holly

Fees are payable in advance of each term – please contact for more information.

Our classes are held in our studios at The Woodyard, Naseby, NN6 6DD.

Adult Dance Class Uniform

Adult dancers will prefer to wear suitable clothing to be able to move freely in, such as leggings or a tracksuit, a vest, t-shirt or leotard.

As for footwear, we suggest socks for ballet, shoes for tap for the first week and then ballet / tap shoes thereafter. 

We recommend that dance shoes are ordered through Northamptonshire School of Dance to ensure quality and teachers will check fittings.
