We offer the younger student a careful path of progression with the opportunity to learn Ballet, Jazz, Hip Hop, Contemporary, Musical Theatre and Scottish. We plan levels of training carefully designed to introduce the correct technique and instruction appropriate for the age and physical development of the student. Our school ethos is to nurture each individual child to develop their own strengths and provide them with the confidence and poise to support them throughout life.

At Dalkeith Campus  we run Ballet, Jazz and Hip hop dance classes every Saturday Morning. We teach children from the age of 3 – 9 years of age and as the children move up into the senior school we ask them to join our very own premises in Musselburgh Stage Door Studios.

Dalkeith Dance School

Our school year focuses on two terms, in our first term we work towards a structured syllabus ending in  either a school exam or a Royal Academy of Dance exam.

Our second term works towards our Annual Show which is the highlight of the school year this runs in    June  and is held in Musselburgh’s Brunton Theatre. This gives our pupils the chance to put everything they  have  learnt into practice in a professional Theatre. This is where we announce the most improved child  throughout the year and Footlights Dance Studio give the child with the biggest personality on stage a  trophy.

Campus – This is the Local School campus, well sign posted throughout Dalkeith. The Campus is  accessible  from the A68 as well as the back road from Musselburgh. Take the first left at the roundabout  and follow the road. Go straight over the next round about and turn Right at the traffic lights. Parking is  available in the main car park. The class is held in the Drama studio just turn right from reception.
