Welcome to the Balcombe & Lindfield Dance School where your child has the opportunity of learning ballet, tap and modern dance. Children from the age of 2 years are offered a fun introduction to the world of dance and encouraged to perform using familiar nursery rhymes, children’s stories, props and costumes.
Students can perform at various local fairs, care homes and pantomimes and dance on stage for our Open Day.
Students from the age of 4 upwards prepare for our Rainbow Awards and Examination Session which is usually held at the end of the Spring term.
