Are you keen to take your danicng to the next level. Do you want to challenge yourself or maybe you want a reward for all the hard work you put into dance?
Just like musical theatre, Elite Dance offer exams and follow the prestigious the ISTD association. Exams follow healthy structure which encourages growth as a dancer. We believe that exams are a great way to progress your dancing and encourage everyone to give it a go. The idea of exams can be very daunting, however you will be pleasantly surprised to know that even though they are hard work, they are very relaxed and sometimes even enjoyable!
An exam usually lasts around 10 minutes, a pupil and either their teacher or partner dance in a private dance studio. Pupils are scored on their technical ability in the chosen discipline and are available for all levels, ranging from beginner through to highly experienced. Results are usually returned to your teacher up-to 3 weeks after the day.
Want to know more about our exams, more info on our Medals and Exams page!
Besides all the best classes we offer, Elite also regularly attends competitions for both solo dancers and couples. Competitions are where you go if you really want to put your ability to the test, who knows you may even win if you are determined. However its not all overly serious, besides the competitive aspects we at Elite love, they are also great places to see some of the best dancing there is out there, meet up with fellow dancers and friends and generally have a great time. Even if you are new to dance or a seasoned pro there are categories for all ages and abilities.
Open competitions are for more advanced couples and take place across the whole of the UK.
ISTD competitions in which we attend are based across the South, East and South-East regions with the highlight of the year at the Winter Gardens Balckpool.
We attend dance competitions as regularly as twice each month and like to encourage everyone to come and give it a go. It is also possible to come along and spectate so family members and friends are also welcome!

With guidelines over the last year or so almost crushing the dance industry, many schools have taken to online dance lessons and Elite followed suit and had great success. At first the idea of being taught or even teaching on a zoom call was unusual and in some cases scary, however after a short time it was clear that online lessons were a more than viable option for learning. Now there are hundreds of dance schools teaching virtually from homes and dance studios with great success. An alternative approach to dance that offers many positives has been found!
If you would like to get involved with Elite dance but struggle to get to one of our studios then online kids and adults lessons could be a great alternative. Learning from your home could never be easier, its possible to improve steps, technique and understanding of most dance aspects.
All of our teachers are experienced teaching via zoom calls so we know you will love it.

Just like other sports and fitness, dancing offers many great benefits to health and wellbeing. There are many studies that support the benefits of dance, recent studies show that fitness aspects such as weight loss, flexibility and stamina can be improved relatively easily, there is also a great social aspect to dance where many likeminded friendly people meet to improve their skills whilst interacting with others, and not to forget mental health, even being with your teacher who will help you by communicating and sharing ideas with you will give you a confidence boost. This are just some of the positives of what we do here at Elite and we would love to share them with you!
