Alexandra’s School of Dance and Theatre
We offer dance classes for children and adults in Ilkeston, Derbyshire. Classes include children’s Ballet, Tap, Streetdance, Theatrecraft, Freestyle/Disco and Musical Theatre. And for adults we offer Pilates classes and Silver Swans ballet for the older learner.
We are an inclusive dance and theatre school for youngsters from 2 years of age and above, based in Ilkeston, Derbyshire. We aim to instil the love of dance through performing and learning to perform all styles of dance, singing and theatrecraft at a level appropriate to each child’s abilities. This is achieved without the children feeling pressured but instead experiencing the joy in what they are learning to do.

Classes are available in Ballet, Tap, Musical Theatre, Freestyle, Disco, Theatre Craft and Streetdance as well as Pre-school classes for children from 2 years of age.
Here at Alexandra’s we offer a high standard of teaching and value for money. Most classes are ½ hour duration and cost £3.00, some classes for the older children are ¾ hour costing £4.50.
PERFORMANCES & EXAMS
We recognise that one of the most enjoyable functions of a dance school is giving the children a chance to perform, thereby helping to increase their confidence as well as giving the parents a chance to see their children performing so there are regular showcases for the different types of dance they are learning.
Examinations are taken to give the children and their parents a clear indication of their progress, usually one a year per class.
