Dance Classes for 5 to 7 year olds in woking, surrey

Some children really want to start a new activity but sometimes are worried that they won’t know anyone or make new friends.

We have a buddy up system at LESTA where they will feel instantly welcome as they are guided through their first trial lessons.

They will make friends before you know it and will feel part of our dance family within no time!
"This is such a great dance school- my daughter’s technique has improved so much since joining. The teachers are fantastic, very knowledgeable and encouraging. Lockdown lessons have been amazing- still able to make progress and prepare for exams!"

Progressing Ballet Technique Dance Classes for Kids in Woking Progressing Ballet Technique

Progressing Ballet Technique (PBT) is an innovative body-conditioning and strengthening program that has been designed to enhance students' technique by focussing on training the muscle memory required in each exercise in all forms of dance. It is a unique training system using ballet-technique specific exercises to train skill acquisition in a graded and progressive manner from junior through to advanced levels.

Tap dance is brilliant for exercise due to its aerobic nature, so let’s get tapping and make our bodies move! Creating sounds and rhythms like the penguins in the animated film “Happy Feet”.

In these classes we start to explore correct technique as the students progress through the ISTD syllabus. They can also start to take examinations which ultimately can contribute to UCAS points as part of their wider education.
