Curtain Upp Stage School
Dance is a wonderful way for everyone to make new friends, build confidence and enhance their social skills. It is an expression of your personality and a way to explore who you are. Dancing is a relaxed and enjoyable way to keep fit, both physically and mentally, whilst improving strength, coordination, stamina and flexibility. It also encourages the release of happy endorphins. Working closely with the Teachers and other dancers can help individuals develop their creativity, communication, teamwork and leadership skills that are transferable with many other aspects of life. There are many ways in which the children can develop their skills, and they may even choose to take part in competitions, examinations and shows. But most importantly, dancing is great fun! At Curtain Upp® our priority is to promote a friendly, family-like atmosphere. We are here to support and encourage all students and wish to make our School a place you and your children will be eager to visit each week, for another dance class. You have an expanding programme of classes to choose from: Ballet, Modern, Tap, Acrobatics, Musical Theatre, Boys Street Dance, Girls Commercial and Adult Tap. Please contact us in advance to book Taster Class(es). Anyone visiting Curtain Upp for the first time is given the opportunity to participate in the weekly classes (listed below) at just £1 each. A Taster session will give you, or your child the opportunity to try our classes before deciding to join the School. Classes are offered during term times only, and optional classes may be offered during holidays. Students are asked to wear something comfortable and safe to dance in (no long dresses). Ballet shoes are not essential, so please do not feel the need to buy any to enjoy a taster class. However, each child should bring a drink of water to the session. If you, or your child, have any medical issues please inform the Principal, Helen, upon arrival. Parents will be asked to complete a Registration Form and read the School Policies. There is always complimentary tea and coffee available for parents and guardians to enjoy.
