We cater for all ages and level of dance experience – for the once a week student as a hobby, or those who wish to progress professionally.

Every student that walks through the door is important, and has a great opportunity to reach out to the community and the world in a positive way, what is taught at The Island Dance and Theatre Company, makes a different in someone elses life. The best gift you could give your child is confidence and self-esteem. These are the characteristics needed to be successful in life. Dance is a wonderful way to develop these.

We are trained in technique, theory, anatomy and safe practise ad we will assist your child with good posture, self-awareness, discipline, body fitness, goal setting, personal friendship and self-esteem and they will grow in confidence throughout their dancing years!
