We hold an annual show for the whole school in which the classes all perform at least 3 routines. We also provide costumes for this show at a minimal hire charge. At the end of the year we hold a cabaret evening where we showcase our competition work.
We run 2 examination sessions a year and our results are outstanding.
COMPETITIONS AND FESTIVALS
We enter 4 competitions a year as a whole school, 2 of which we run ourselves. Competition pupils are able to enter more festivals if they wish with the permission of the principals.
We have 3 purpose built studios with professional harlequin flooring and 2 studios have a semi-sprung floor.
We have a private car park and a secure entry system.
We have a separate reception, changing area and kitchen.
There is also a brand new cafe in the building now open.
HSTD is a long established dance school that has been running for over 25 years. We encourage learning in a fun and friendly environment so that pupils can meet their full potential and gain the highest marks in both examinations and festivals.
Co-principals Janet Horsfall, who has over 40 years experience and Laura Gonciarz, who has been teaching for over 15 years, are fully qualified in the IDTA syllabus and teach children from 2 and a half years right through to adults.
