Inspiring your child to succeed.....
Our aim is to encourage fitness and a healthy lifestyle, develop confidence and self-esteem and to ensure students reach their full potential.
To do this, we will:
1. Teach the joy of dance
2. Ensure your child feels challenged to achieve their best.
3. Employ high calibre staff
4. Be an inclusive school, teaching all abilities.
5. Offer opportunities to succeed. This may be achieved by taking a dance exam, being part of a performance or simply having fun in class!
Splitz School of Dance and Drama teaches Ballet, Tap, Modern, Street, Contemporary, Musical Theatre, Singing and Drama. Venues are in Knebworth, Woolmer Green and Hatfield. Now in our 28th year, we have approximately 320 students.
The dance classes aim to suit all ages. Children can start with Mini Ballet at 3 years. Ballet, tap and modern are taught by qualified teachers in the I.S.T.D (Imperial Society for Teachers of Dance) method up to and including vocational level. We also offer adult classes. For a full list of the classes we offer, go to Classes/Timetables above.
We offer the option of taking I.S.T.D. exams in ballet, tap, modern theatre and contemporary. Opportunities to perform include drama productions and we have an annual presentation day for each branch of the school. We also hold a school wide production every two years at The Hawthorne Theatre, Campus West, in Welwyn Garden City. A professional standard production that gives everyone in the school from 5 years+ a chance to experience performing in a real theatre with a real audience.
