COVID-19 update – 19/03/2020

Further to the Prime Minister’s announcements last night, our last night of teaching will be tonight (Thursday 19th March) until further notice.

“I hope all our students and their families are coping during this difficult time. With the country being requested to stay at home for the immediate future we are unfortunately unable to hold our regular studio-based classes. We have been working hard to develop a series of online classes and tasks to keep our students engaged, both mentally & physically, during the closure period. It is lovely to see the smiling faces of our students with the help of technology and we have received some heart-warming feedback from parents. This is far from an ideal situation but we are doing our best to keep our students dancing until such time as we can resume proper classes. Our thoughts are with all those that have been affected and we express our sincere thanks to all those working to keep our country going during the pandemic. Thank you to all our families for sticking by us as we move forward .”

I hope you all stay safe and well. Jena x

Welcome to Sylvan School of Dance

At Sylvan School of Dance we welcome children aged 3 years and upwards and offer classes in a variety of dance genres which we hope will appeal to anyone with a love of dance.

Sylvan School of Dance is a close-knit, friendly school offering dance to pupils of all abilities.

Ballet, Tap, Modern, Jazz and more!

We offer syllabus classes based on RAD ballet and ISTD modern and tap teaching methods. Examinations are offered in these subjects.

In addition, we offer a number of supplementary non-syllabus classes to compliment these and pupils may elect to participate in as many or as few classes as they wish.

We also produce school shows staged in a local theatre, offer summer workshops and participate in local dance competitions.


We run classes in 3 locations:

  • Oasis Academy, Lordshill Southampton.
  • Mountbatten School
  • North Baddesley Village Hall.

Many of the children attend from North Baddesley, Chandlers Ford, Romsey, Rownhams and surrounding areas of Southampton.

We believe that it’s vital to provide individual support for every student.

  • We encourage our students to develop knowledge and understanding of dance technique, musicality and artistry.
  • We encourage our students to strive towards meaningful goals and support them throughout their dance training.
  • Our philosophy is applied to all levels of our teaching training. Students are encouraged to get involved in all dance subjects.
  • Our goals are to create enjoyment and creativity in dance movement and strive towards a professional level.
  • Our responsibilities are to respect all individuals, deliver good practice, safe guard and promote well-being regardless of their age, gender, ethnicity, development stage, religious belief or whether the individual is disabled.
  • Training and legal knowledge of safe guarding for children.

We trust you will enjoy browsing our site and find a class to fulfil your requirements. We’d love to have you join us. Get in touch to find out more.
