Welcome to Natalia Dance Academy

Classes From 2 years old to adult.

Adult Ballet

Adult ballet is a super way of getting into shape, develop and maintain flexibility and improve posture. It's creative, expressive and great for co-ordination.  Ballet isn’t just for kids.  Stretch yourself no matter how old you are with one of our relaxed yet keenly focussed classes.

Adult Tap

Have you ever wondered if you can tap dance? Did you tap dance as a child? Tap is one of the most enjoyable and rhythmic forms of dance there is.  This is a lively, fun class, where all abilities learn technique and style whilst learning routines set to varied music styles.  We also participate in annual shows which are of course optional but a lot of fun.  So if you have been looking for an adult class near you or want to start up something new, come and join us !


 This class fuses hypnotic musical rhythms and tantalizing moves to create a dynamic workout system designed to be fun and easy to do.  Zumba utilizes the principles of fitness interval training and resistance training to create an absolute blast in one exhilarating hour of caloric burning, heart racing, muscle pumping and body energizing movements. 

Modern / Jazz

Jazz Dance is a a brilliant dance form! Seen in various different musicals, Jazz is one of the three main dynamics for a dancer, paired with Ballet and Tap these three dance forms marry perfectly. Jazz teaches the perfect disciplines for any dancer.

Tiny Toes

Our Tiny Toes classes offer a great way for the tiny tots to create co-ordination skills through movement to music incorporating character work. Build confidence and socialising skills whilst making new friends and developing a foundation of dance ability through movement, interaction and imagination.   Let your little ones run off some energy and have lots of fun
