Children’s Ballet Classes: All children from age 3yrs upwards have the opportunity to perform in an annual dance production.

This allows even our youngest dance students to experience being “on stage” for the first time.

All grades have the opportunity to be in a full production as part of the matinee performances at our annual show. Here they perform Modern , Jazz, Tap and Hip Hop items as-well as being part of a narrative ballet.
Kate Simmons Dance: Grade 5 ballet, modern & tap through to Advanced 2
All grades have the opportunity to be part of the evening production which takes the form of a specially created ballet alongside the Senior Programme and guest artists. This level shows their Jazz, Tap, and Hip Hop genre in a separate matinee production.
Kate Simmons Dance Lower School is the perfect transition for Young Dancers who aspire to be Dancers when they grow up. Many Dancers have begun Dancing at the age of 3 with KS and gone on to professional careers in Ballet and West-End and Broadway productions. Young Dancers at Kate Simmons Dance also have the opportunity to Dance recreationally and enjoy participating in shows to enrich their development and physical fitness.
Once Dancers are 14/15 years of age they have opportunity to audition for our full time Performers Course, Level 6 Diploma in Professional Dance with optional teaching DDE modules.
