Over 100 Years of Quality Teaching

About us

The Orme School of Dancing provides a broad curriculum of dance subjects to pupils from 2 years of age up to the professional advanced level student and adult dancer. We are fortunate to be able to offer contemporary dance for secondary school pupils and also a range of music tuition

We have regular Showtime Performances open to everyone in the school. At these events the whole school family comes together to help each other to enjoy the experience of performing. They are a celebration of the hard work and achievements made throughout the year and an opportunity for parents and family to see the development and growing skills of all our dancers.

We have regular examination centres for pupils and students who wish to take exams. All examinations are fully recognised awards/qualifications both within the industry and by the Council for Dance Education and Training (CDET) the government’s dance industry quality and assessment body and regulated by Ofqual. Graded Examinations and Professional Examinations give an opportunity for points to be added to candidate’s National Record of Achievement and these points may be collected to add to UCAS scores.

Following examinations we have an Awards and Demonstration Evening at a theatre venue with a photographer for parents to see pupils’ progress and to create a special occasion.
