Established in 2004 by Janet Seymour as the ‘School of Theatre Dance’ we are proud to have developed a community of dance throughout Swaledale and Wensleydale. Under the new direction of Hannah Smith, Dales Dance delivers high quality performing arts classes in Ballet, Tap, Jazz and Musical Theatre to over 200 children and adults from 3 years.
We aim to bring out the full potential of every student - whether they wish to pursue the arts as a career or a hobby - by nurturing their passion, encouraging their dedication, building their resilience and celebrating their enjoyment of dance and theatre.
Our students are at the heart of everything we do and we passionately believe no person should be deprived of opportunity because of where they live. This is why we bring our classes to you.
