Lesley Taylor School of Dance

Mancheser-based dance school for children aged 2+

The Lesley Taylor School Experience

Dancing can be a very enjoyable hobby. Children can join the school from 2 years old and we try to make the classes and uniforms as affordable as possible with dance shoes available to borrow for free.

Depending on the age and interests of the particular group, most of the classes are a mix of:

  • Ballet
  • Tap
  • Modern
  • Freestyle
  • Street Dance
  • Gynmastics
  • We hold a small show at the end of each school year so the children can share what they have learned with relatives and friends. We always hold these shows in the afternoon so young children aren’t expected to stay up late. These shows and dance exams are completely optional.

    We also teach a variety of adult fitness classes including:

  • Fitness Pilates
  • Aerobis
  • Salsa
  • Jive
  • Barre Fitnes
  • Charleston Workouts
  • For times and locations of classes please see the timetable below. Free trial classes are available for children’s classes.
