Children's classes at Brookes Dance Academy are devised to harness and build their imagination and creativity. The Pre-School classes use songs, role play, improvisation, games and storytelling along with basic skills and dance technique. For older children, primary & teenager classes they learn dance techniques in greater depth while still having the opportunities to express themselves and build the confidence to perform. They can do all this through a variety of dance styles and disciplines.

Being a mother myself, I fully understand the financial strains on families so we have an affordable payment policy to help spread the cost of classes. We have three 12 week terms in the year which generally fall in line with the local schools.

We are very fortunate to use dance studios that are large, bright, clean and airy which all have free parking, changing rooms and wonderful facilities. They are all based in Tenterden and close to local amenities.

As you will see from our testimonials, Brookes Dance Academy has a wonderful community feel and prides itself on providing a caring, professional service to help bring out the very best in your child.
