  • Dionysus school of dance wants every student to be themselves and to enjoy their dance classes to the full. We encourage individuality and help students shine in every way we can.
  • Dionysus teachers expect students to work hard but in a fun and creative atmosphere. We hope that they can talk to us if any issues or problems should arise.
  • Our show is a big part of our school year but the process throughout the year is equally as important to us. Learning new steps, memorising moves, showing confidence, making friendships, being punctual, respectful, reliable, creative and strong are all things that we nurture along the way.

Our school motto is…

We dance for laughter
We dance for tears
We dance for madness
We dance for fears
We dance for hopes
We dance for screams
We are the dancers
We create the dreams…. (Albert Einstein)
