Adult Dance

Northamptonshire School of Dance has taught a range of adults to dance over the last 15 years, and currently we are offering weekly ballet classes. Whether you are completely new to ballet or are returning to a childhood hobby, you are very welcome to come along to our friendly lesson for the over 18s, with no upper age limit.

We currently offer Adult classes in BALLET, CONTEMPORARY, STREET AND TAP, so there really is a class to suit everyone!

We are accredited by the Royal Academy of Dance

Learn more about the school's principal, Natalie Carter, who was formerly a professional ballet dancer, and our other teachers on the team by reading our biographies page.

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 music

> self-motivation leading to self-appreciation and increaed confidence

> making new friends and having loads of fun!

Northamptonshire School of Dance teachers offer the Royal Academy of Dance exams

We expect all ladies' hair to be neatly tied back and suitable exercise attire should be worn for all lessons, as we find this helps students get in to the right mindset for the class.

 Ballet is taught by Hayley, Contemporary by Lucy, Street by Bette and Tap by Julie

Fees are payable in advance of each term - please contact admin@northamptonshiredance.co.uk for more information.

Adult Dance Class Uniform

Adult dancers will prefer to wear suitable clothing to be able to move freely in, such as leggings or yoga trousers, vests or t-shirts.  Or if preferred, we have a lovely selection of leotards available to choose from.

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

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