Wells School of Dancing

What can I can say…

Miss Sarah the founder of Wells School of Dancing has put together another fantastic show.  My daughter has appeared on the Towngate Theatre stage for the second time.

She originally appeared in Mas quer ade as one of the Tinkerbells, the cute little tots that everyone ‘aahs’ at.  This time she was one of the Tin Men from The Wizard of Oz.  What a fantastic show it was from start to finish.  What was lovely to see that everyone was enjoying themselves from all walks of life,

The School

Miss Sarah the proprietor is a lovely lady and character, the school has been established for over 20 years.  She is great with the children and I know my daughter absolutely adores her and her helper Miss Joanne.  She has been attending for 4 years now and loves every minute.   

Originally I chose Wells School of Dancing because it was local and within walking distance from my house.  A lot of her friends from both her school and class attend and I know they enjoy it tremendously also. 

They specialise in the following catered for all ages:

Cecchetti Ballet

Born in Italy in 1850 Enrico Cecchetti was a brilliant virtuoso dancer who went on to become the leading teacher of his generation. Pavlova and Nijinski were two of his many famous students and he worked with Rambert and Dame Ninette de Valois, the founders of British Ballet. Cecchetti’s own teaching was geared to professional dancers so the Cecchetti Society has evolved a series of graded syllabi to prepare children for the needs of the very demanding work carefully handed down from the Maestro.

ISTD Modern Dance

A description of Modern is extremely difficult as it encompasses many different styles of dance. At junior levels it is neither jazz nor disco but develops into a jazz style as the children progress through the carefully structured grades. It has many strengthening exercises for various parts of the body, rhythm sections to encourage musical awareness and lively dance sequences full of energy and fun.


Apart from being an essential skill for the professional dancer it is probably one of the most enjoyable forms of recreational dance. The children love to hear the noises their feet make as they ‘tap’, ‘shuffle’ and ‘pick up’ across the floor. The tap syllabi is currently being revised to reflect the influence of the American Tap on British Musical Theatre.
