“Thank you for all of your help to get Imogen back into dancing… She’s very much enjoying the Tuesday class”
Did your child attend classes when younger, stopped and now wants to continue?! or have they suddenly expressed an interest in starting dance for the first time? Either way, we have classes for teens of all abilities… Please take a look at the classes below which are suitable for high school aged children…


Teen Ballet (11yrs) Tuesdays 6.00pm – 6.45pm

I’ve said it before but we really do love our adult classes here at JC Dance – when the school started with just two classes back in 2004 one was a beginners adult tap class (and one member of that original beginner’s tap group is still dancing… my Mum!) and adult classes have been on the timetable continuously since then.

Anyway, as our current lovely Monday Beginner Adult Ballet class are no longer technically beginners we are promoting them to “Improvers” and starting a brand new – absolutely FROM SCRATCH Beginners Adult Ballet class for anyone who has NO PRIOR EXPERIENCE but would love to learn and would like to be with others at the same level.

And of course if you fancy being a little noisier we also have 3 fab adult tap classes, all in the Holland Studio, Blackpool Sixth, which are all £5 per class, payable ½ termly.

  • Improvers 1 Adult Tap (up to 1 year prior experience) Tuesdays 7.45 – 8.30pm
  • Improvers 2 Adult Tap (1-3 years prior experience) Mondays 6.45 – 7.45pm
  • Inter Adult Tap (3+ years prior experience) Wednesdays 6.30 – 7.15pm


For those that have prior ballet experience, why not try our Improvers Adult Ballet class?
Monday 7.30 – 8.30pm also at the Holland Studio

  • Starting on Tuesday 25th April
  • Beginners Adult Ballet
  • Tuesday 6.45 – 7.45pm
  • Holland Studio, Blackpool Sixth
  • £6 per class, payable ½ termly


If you would like to try any of the above, please book a place with Joanna 07792 410490 or… Happy Dancing!
