Principal Fiona Barnard founded Farnham Dance in 2009. Today it is a busy and thriving school offering a wide range of dance classes for children & adults in Ballet, Tap & Modern Dance. All our teachers are highly qualified and are DBS-checked, as are the class assistants.
We offer Pre-School classes for children from aged 2+. From age 4 we follow the structured RAD syllabus in ballet & The ISTD syllabus for Tap & Modern dance. Students work towards graded exams in which we have a 100% pass rate. Talented children are offered (at the discretion of Farnham Dance) the chance to audition for the Royal Ballet School’s Associate Programme .
Our fully-staged Shows offer pupils the chance to perform in an exciting theatrical environment promoting performance and dance skills as well as creating life-long memories. Our most recent performance in July 2019 was “The Dancing Years” – a show-reel of this can be viewed on the “Notices” page of the website shortly.
Other performance opportunities are encouraged including Fetes and Competitions and in 2016 we were proud to be chosen to represent the Royal Academy of Dance for the Queen’s 90th Birthday Celebration dancing along the Mall in London.
Whatever your child’s aspirations or ability, dance is a positive and rewarding experience. The sheer joy of dance and performance is just as important as the syllabus work.
