At Kilmarnock School of Dance our aim is to give children confidence and poise through a love of dance.
Lessons start with Twinklesteps classes from the age of two and a half. These are story based and also introduce tap dancing to for fun and rhythm.
As the children start school we move into the Royal Academy of Dance Ballet syllabus, Freestyle Jazz and Performance Tap.
All our classes are progressive and the pupils have the opportunity to take the R.A.D. examinations.
The whole school comes together for a fantastic annual show in the Palace Theatre every year.
Parents are also invited in for a family evening to observe the young dancers in class before the Christmas Holidays.
