Welcome to Fusion

a Dance School different from the rest

ABOUT US

As the name suggests we are a fusion of styles for all children to achieve and have fun with. We cover ballettapmodernstreetmusical theatre and freestyle dance. On Saturdays we have most of our classes. The class varies and therefore ensures the children enjoy it. The classes are structured into segments devoted to the subjects.

We pride ourselves on fully qualified teachers with the IDTA (International Dance Teachers Association) as well as being DRB checked for you as parents’ peace of mind. All teachers and helpers also hold Chaperone licences. Our primary aim is to help your child realise their potential in a fun and safe environment. Additionally, the Principal is also a qualified teacher with the ISTD (Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing).

We have maximum numbers in our classes to ensure that each child is attended to and ballet only classes are even small due to the technical nature of the subject.

Examinations will be taken in these subjects with the IDTA which helps the children see their progression. These will always be notified in advance and it is important for everyone to make these sessions.

We also hold shows every 18 months at the Towngate Theatre for that full performer’s experience. Additionally, we have performed at Her Majesty's Theatre in the West End and Disneyland Paris.

We accept children from 3 years old but you are never too old to learn! 

So what are you waiting for? Come and have a try.
