At L.O.D Dance Studios we work with students of all ages, abilities & interests to nurture a love of dance, &, for those wanting to pursue further goals, prepare them for a career in the arts.
We ensure a family friendly & supportive learning environment, in which students feel stimulated & challenged. This also gives them the best opportunity to develop the posture, confidence, co-ordination, discipline & creativity necessary for all facets in life.
Directors Natalie Woodhall & Marina Macfarlane have had the studio for a decade. With that extensive teaching experience under their belts, together they head a team of experienced and qualified teachers who instil confidence, and create a supportive learning environment for their dancers & families.
We offer a variety of dance styles, including Ballet, Jazz Tap & Contemporary. This ensures students can explore what they are truly passionate about, letting students become confident, and self motivated learners. Conditioning classes are also available from age 12+, & allow the teachers to implement the leading health and safety practises & supplementary training, including the DancePilates conditioning programmes. We are also proud to be partnered with Movitae. Made for dance schools, Movitae is an online hub that allows students to take their dance class home, so we can assist students between lessons, helping them become better dancers faster. Unlike social media, content can only be shared within our organisation and Movitae is suitable for all ages.
For our youngest dancers, we have a fabulous program called READY SET DANCE. These are one hour combo class that includes jazz, tap, hip hop, singing, music and are a whole lot of FUN for girls and boys. Targeting ages 2-5 year olds, the syllabus is divided into two levels. The specially designed Jazz, Hip Hop and Tap exercises are perfect for both boys and girls & extend beyond dance to develop skills such a teamwork and confidence.
Our pre-school “Magical Movement” class introduces 3-4 year olds to the magical & creative world of ballet, and allows our young dancers to explore movement & rhythm in an imaginative and fun filled half hour class.
School age children can begin RAD Ballet or AJDA Jazz classes, and Beginner Contemporary & Tap classes run for 7-8 year olds. Click here for a full list of our beginner level classes!
