Each winter and spring, Jacqueline's School of Dance prepares students to be tested by an accredited examiner from the British Association of Teacher's of Dancing (BATD) in ballet, jazz and tap and Acrobatic Arts for acro. While it is your final decision as to whether your child participates in the exams, we find that the feeling of accomplishment is of great benefit for the child.
Not sure which class to choose? We have trial classes on Tuesday August 27th 2019 to help you make the right decision for your child 2 - 10 years. Let your child participate to discover their interests and get a feel for Jacqueline's School of Dance.
