Registration is now open for dance classes for the 2022/23 season for children from 18 months to 5 years old.
Our vision is simple. We believe in the value of dance as an enriching art form. For the past 30+ years, dance umbrella has provided high-quality dance and movement classes. An alternative form of self-expression, dance helps build self-confidence, create healthy bodies and minds, and develop creativity. Thousands of students have gone through our training programmes, many of whom have successful careers in the performing arts.
My Parent & Me My Parent & Me is for children ages 18 month-3 years. These classes promote parent-child bonding through creative and playful dance experiences.

What are Relaxed Performances?
Sometimes referred to as sensory-friendly experiences, Relaxed Performances give the opportunity for those with various sensitivities towards sensory stimuli to experience and enjoy live theatre.
These performances will be designed in a way to be more comfortable for audience members who may experience anxiety or are not comfortable with some aspects of a traditional theatre setting. This can include people on the Autism Spectrum and their families; those with sensory and communicative disorders or learning disabilities; people with Tourette’s syndrome; someone who might need to move often due to chronic pain or to use the facilities; or even parents with toddlers.
