Our mantra at Rhythm Nation Studios is to Inspire, Motivate and Create. We have very passionate teachers that deliver top quality dance instruction without the high pressurisation for results, we want every child to develop and grow at their own rate and feel safe to really let go and have fun within our classes!
At Junior level, your child will have the optional opportunity to take exams under the IDTA syllabus if they so wish, or simply come to class and enjoy the class week to week without going through the grading system. We also offer performance opportunities at our annual showcase.
Children who attend our junior classes will learn the skills of their chosen styles having so much fun that they won’t even realise they are becoming fantastic dancers in the process. We strictly limit our class numbers to 16 only per class to ensure each and every child gets the attention and experience they deserve!
With 6 styles on our timetable to try, we encourage Juniors to try every class available with our FREE 6 class pass, and then they will naturally gravitate towards the styles that are most suited to them or that they most enjoy.

Lyrical is a balletic form of dance that incapsulates the story of the song. A little more free than Ballet, but ballet training is essential to achieve the most from this class. We recommend you study Ballet alongside most disciplines, but especially Lyrical. This is a free class, so no examinations or grades are available within this discipline, so the pupils are separated on ability and experience. If your child is constantly twirling around and being very dramatic, this is a style they should definitely have a go at! Suitable for children aged 9 upwards or younger pupils who have had Ballet training, assessed by your teacher as your taster session.
Modern Jazz is a technique based classed where your child will learn to perfect turns leaps and kicks, what every dancer wants to achieve!
