Lesley Taylor School of Dance

Timperley, Altrincham and Cheadle, Stockport based dance school for children aged 2+

CORONAVIRUS UPDATE

19th March 2020
Classes are carrying on for the rest of this week with extra social distancing measures. Classes will be closed for the following 4 weeks and then I'll reasses the situation. Fees for next week's cancelled classes will be transferred to the first week back. Thanks for your patience and understanding.

18th March 2020
We have just 2 weeks of this term and (as like many other local dance schools) I am continuing to run classes until advised otherwise. I completely understand if people want to stay home from classes at the moment. I am taking each day at a time at the moment so please check my Facebook page and website for updates.

IMPORTANT
Please wash your hands before and after classes, stay at home if you feel unwell and bring hand sanitizer to class if you want to. I'm also asking people to come in through the garage and leave through the front door to ease congestion in the hall way. I may finish classes a few minutes early and staying late to clear the doors, toilets and benches. All my equipment is also being regularly cleaned. Any fees lost due to cancelled classes will either be credited at a later date of refunded.

Thank you!

The Lesley Taylor School of Dance

Dancing can be a very enjoyable hobby. Children can join the school from 2 years old and I try to make the classes and uniforms as affordable as possible with dance shoes available to borrow for free.

Depending on the age and interests of the particular group, most of the classes are a mix of:

  • Ballet
  • Tap
  • Modern
  • Freestyle
  • Street Dance
  • Gynmastics
  • I hold a small show at the end of each school year so the children can share what they have learned with relatives and friends. I always hold these shows in the afternoon so young children aren’t expected to stay up late. These shows and dance exams are completely optional.

    I also teach a variety of adult fitness classes including:

  • Fitness Pilates
  • Aerobis
  • Salsa
  • Jive
  • Barre Fitnes
  • Charleston Workouts
  • For times and locations of classes please see the timetable below. Free trial classes are available for children’s classes.
