Our Philosophy

Our mission is to bring out the best in every student. To celebrate the achievements of all students and foster an appreciation of the creative arts.

At Grange Dance we value quality dance education. We work to the Royal Academy of Dance (RAD) syllabi for ballet and the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing (ISTD) for Tap and Modern Theatre. We believe in taking internationally recognised exams gives students goals to work towards and the proof that with hard work and devotion, students can achieve results to be proud of.
