Individual Tuition

Our individual tuition will give you the support with a broad spectrum of genres and through tailor-made studies. Whether you’re looking to build your confidence or go through graded exams, BHVA’s Dance Academy will nurture and inspire you to achieve your goals.

Our aim is to ensure all Dance students develop safe technical practice techniques, an understanding of the dynamic quality of movement, and a condense to explore their own creativity and style.

We combine this with learning how to engage with the movement being performed to achieve a performance which is engaging and connects with the audience.

Sessions start from £25 for half an hour.

Adult Dance Classes

LAUNCHING IN SEPTEMBER our adult dance classes will provide you with a place to explore and discover new and existing dance skills and technique for 90-minutes each week. All while building new friendships and having a lot of fun.

All ages, all abilities. These sessions are the perfect group setting to discover your creativity through the world of dance. You will learn technique and then use your own creativity to choreograph your own work.

Our term-time sessions will also provide you with an online membership area with resources to help you if you wish to practice at home in between sessions. Social events will also be planned to help with promotion of community.
