Welcome to Splitz School of Dance and Drama! We teach I.S.T.D. Ballet, Tap, Modern Theatre and Contemporary. Non- syllabus classes include Musical Theatre, Street dance and Drama. Venues are in Knebworth, Woolmer Green and Hatfield. Now in our 29th year, we have approximately 250 students. 

We teach children from age 3, offering mini ballet and we welcome students to start dancing with us at any age. Qualified teachers teach ballet, tap and modern in the I.S.T.D (Imperial Society for Teachers of Dance) method up to and including vocational level. We also offer adult classes in ballet, tap and an online yoga class. For a complete list of the lessons we offer, please go to our class timetable page.

Opportunities for students include I.S.T.D. Exams in ballet, tap, modern theatre and contemporary, drama productions, performing at our annual presentation day and taking part in a show that we stage every two years at The Hawthorne Theatre, Campus West, in Welwyn Garden City. A professional standard production gives everyone in the school from 5 years+  a chance to experience performing in a real theatre with a real audience.
