Christmas Presentation 2019!


Our Christmas Presentation will be held on Wednesday 11th December at YMCA Watford.  All children in our Ballet, Tap and Modern classes will be taking part. The children have been working very hard on their dances and cannot wait to share them with you!




We are delighted to welcome back Edna and John from Blue Orange Images into our dance classes during October 2019!  

Edna will take some actions shots throughout the classes, as well as some posed shots in front of a back drop.  





Starting on Tuesday 10th September at St Marys Church Hall, 

our new Parent and Toddler Melody Movement Dance Class will run

from 10am - 10.40am.  


The class is suitable for children aged 22 months up to 4 years old and costs £6 pay as you go!



IDTA Dance Exams


Our next IDTA exam session will be in early 2020!  Dates to be announced.   


Summer Project - Cats!


Following our very succesful 'The Ugly Duckling" media project last year, this year, during the summer term 2019, we will be working on CATS, which will include, for the first time, a performance for parents to watch! We will be looking at the poems by T.S Elliot and the music from Cats the Musical! All children attending Dance ARC will be involved in this exciting project and we cannot wait to share the end result!





We now have our own online uniform store.  Our personalised store stocks all of our uniform items as well as dance accessories and gifts!  We will continue to sell ballet shoes direct in order to make sure that you have the correct size.
