Ballet Classes

Ballet - a beautiful artistic and technically demanding art form appreciated by audiences globally

Here at TJH Dance & Fitness in Tamworth we follow the syllabus of the Royal Academy of Dance (RAD), the largest dance teaching and examining body in the world. Our classical ballet classes are available for all ages and abilities, and are divided up as follows: 


Nursery Class - available for children from age 2 ½. Nursery ballet classes are fun and are designed to develop each child's ballet technique through music, movement, and imagery. 

Pre-primary and primary ballet - At this stage, children will be beginning to learn to dance in many ways, exploring with movement and building knowledge of some ballet steps along with terminology. Mime and props are again used at this stage to enhance their imagination.

Grade 1, 2 and 3 - From Grade 1 upwards, classes start to get more technical. Incorporated within these levels are Character steps which are simplified dances from Poland, Hungary and Russia. Along with this there is also exercises where the children can express themselves more freely through traveling steps and movements. Most pupils now prepare for the grade examinations, and are actively encouraged to pursue this, though it is not at all compulsory. 


​Higher Grades & Vocational Levels - Please contact us at TJH Dance & Fitness to discuss these classes.

Modern Theatre Dance Classes

A dynamic form of dance showing influence of jazz, lyrical and other styles…

At TJH Dance & Fitness follow the syllabus of the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dance (ISTD) which is taught and examined throughout the world. By following this syllabus our pupils can work towards exams with confidence. Our modern theatre classes are available for all ages and abilities, and are divided up as follows:

Primary - For children aged 4 1/2 years, our modern theatre dance classes are based around the natural movements of walking, running, skipping and jumping. The syllabus has been carefully designed to introduce this dance style to beginners and is available in the school along with introductory Tap as Mini Movers. 

Grades 1, 2 & 3 - Progressing on from primary are our graded classes. The grade work continues to develop and build the dance style of each student. At this stage, the pupils can find their style and can adapt, enabling them to become disciplined and versatile dancers. 

For more advanced classes please contact the school.

Tap Dance

TJH Dance & Fitness again follows the syllabus from the ISTD and pupils can work towards exams. The early grades focus upon the step technique and the development of rhythm and timing.
