Expert tuition in all aspects of dance


Dance classes in all aspects of dance for children from the age of two up to adults.

Children are welcome to start at any age and any time throughout the year. Children can learn to dance from as young as two years old. At this level Children are learning to dance from as young as two years old. At this level Children are learning to dance with the emphasis on “fun”. At the age of five, children are then invited to participate in the schools annual Examination sessions, which we hold excellent 100% results.

A vital part of Dance training is “performance” and each year the pupils work extremely hard to produce the annual school show, which is always a tremendous success.

My aim is to provide my pupils with a teaching standard that benefits the prestigious RAD and ISTD syllabus and to ensure that all pupils are protected from the damage that can result from incorrect teaching - most importantly that they are allowed to progress at the correct speed.

At Dancesteps pupils learn to dance through expert tuition with emphasis on lots of fun and enjoyment for everyone involved.

About Miss Kerry


At the age of 2 I took my first Dancesteps. As a child I attended the Fenn School Of Dance (now Tina’s), Royal Ballet School Whitelodge and Hammond School.

At 16 I successfully auditioned for the Northern Ballet School and graduated three years later, gaining Distinctions in all my teaching exams. In May 2000 Dancesteps was formed and the rest as they say is history.

My aim is to provide my pupils with a teaching standard that benefits the prestigious RAD and ISTD syllabus and to ensure that all pupils are protected from the damage that can result from incorrect teaching - most importantly that they are allowed to progress at the correct speed.

The past year has once again seen the pupils efforts rewarded with excellent, 100% examination results of which we are all very proud.

As well as running Dancesteps I have had the opportunity of being the Vice Chairman and Greater Manchester Representative of the Royal Academy of Dance Committee.  I have also had the privilege of becoming a Free lance Tutor for the Royal Academy of Dance. This has enabled me to teach students up to vocational standards throughout the UK and worldwide with the Academy. I am a Mentor for the Royal Academy of Dance - enabling me to coach and guide students from all over the world to gain their teaching qualifications, and have recently been asked to become a Practical Teaching Supervisor for the Academy - this now gives me the opportunity to Examine Student teachers throughout the nation and World wide thus being responsible for their future Careers.

Groove in Tune


GROOVE IN TUNE is the perfect opportunity to take children on a journey and let them explore creative movement and song, through their own play. Whilst being taught technique and basic dance skills without knowing it as well as rhythm and keeping fit.

GROOVE IN TUNE allows each child to develop in their own way through creative movement, songs and dance, without knowing it and placing a strong emphasis on FUN!! Sessions are targetted at children aged 2 - 5 years and are run in conjuntion with private day nurseries - we come to you and run classes on your premesis.

Providing the basic building blocks for the transition stage from pre-school to Primary school, GROOVE IN TUNE helps with the governments ‘’Healthy schools’’ incentive and helps to build on the child’s social skills. Each week will be based around a different journey for example a trip to the seaside or even an adventure in the jungle, allowing for the child’s creativity to seep through and by using everyday actions allows the child to associate and cope with real life events and tasks again using dance movement without knowing.
