for children aged 2+
Welcome to H.A.T Theatre Dance School
H.A.T Theatre Dance School provides quality dance training from beginner level to advanced standard. Whether you are looking to dance as a hobby or you aspire to become a professional dancer, we look forward to welcoming you to the school.
We offer dance classes for children aged 2+ in Ballet and 4+ in other disciplines.
Children are trained up to examination level in most subjects from a qualified teacher with the International Dance Teachers Association (IDTA). Exams allow the children to structurally develop and progress within that specific dance style, whilst providing them with a sense of achievement upon completion of each grade.
We also offer exciting Performance & Competition opportunities.
Classes are held weekly in Chester-le-Street. Please see our Classes & Location pages for more information.
Principal, Helen Anne Tuffnell, trained at Phil Winston's Theatreworks and is a qualified teacher with the IDTA.
