Maria Penrose Dance Studios
We provide classes from the age of 2 years. Beginning with our increasingly popular Melody Bear Dance class. A fantastic introduction to dance for girls and boys, this 30 minute lesson uses the natural movements of the body such as skipping, jumping, hopping and galloping. The classes focus on balance, coordination, singing, expressive movement and of course FUN! This class acts s a natural springboard onto basic ballet and other dance subjects.
The progression from age 4 is to move onto our ‘Teeny Tappers’ and/or ‘Ballet Babes’ focusing on developing movements into more technical based steps and looking at progressing onto examinations. At this level the main focus is still to encourage expressive movement and keep dancing fun.
IDTA Graded Class
Graded classes are offered in Ballet, Tap, Theatre Craft and Modern Jazz. All students are encouraged to take graded lessons in these subjects and work towards IDTA Examinations. Exams can be taken from the age of 5 and children will be given professional tuition in preparation for their exam. They are only entered once they have reached a high standard in class.
Our 100% Pass Rate speaks for its self.
We have other non graded classes available. All are taken by qualified and experienced teachers. We have various levels and ages for classes, so please contact us for further details.
From age 6 :
*Street Jazz *Musical Theatre *Gym *Irish

Shows and Competition Work
The whole school is invited to take part in our annual show, held at the Lamproom Theatre. An exciting and fun opportunity that all our pupils, parents and teachers love. It’s a chance to showcase the hard work and progression throughout the year. Selected students may be asked to take part in competitions; this could be group lessons, duets and trios or solos. Competitions are a great way to show off your talents, meet other young dancers and motivate all to improve and grow as performers.
