Dance Classes for Children and Teenagers in Rotherham

We are a thriving, friendly and inclusive studio situated in Rotherham, South Yorkshire.

Since 2009 we have provided dance classes for young people aged 3 to 18.

Our sessions are fun, friendly & engaging and are taught by fully qualified, First Aid trained, enhanced DBS holding, highly experienced teachers who have all worked professionally in their field.
Wide range of dance styles on offer for all ages.
Established for over 10 years.
Qualified and professional teaching staff.

"My daughter absolutely loves it. The teachers are wonderful and her confidence has grown so much."

"Triple Threat is by far the most welcoming, friendly, kind and supportive place I've ever been to for young people."

At Triple Threat we firmly believe that ballet is fundamental in the process of creating strong, flexible, competent and all round accomplished dancers with a strong technique and an excellent understanding of the mechanics of dance.
Our Ballet teachers are qualified with and trained under the Imperial Society of Dance (ISTD) and use the ISTD syllabus to help our students achieve their full potential within this dance style, with a strong emphasis on technique, lines and placement.
We emphasise to our students how important ballet is and how attending our ballet classes gives them the foundations and skills needed for all other dance forms.

For those students wanting to pursue a career in dance and to gain entry to study dance at a higher level, having good knowledge and firm foundation in Ballet is often a requirement.

Although we don't work towards exams at Tripe Threat, we do teach the current ISTD syllabus and progress through the syllabus as students would if they were being examined.
Tap Dance is an exciting, energetic dance form which provides a great release emotionally and creatively for children (and adults!) of all ages.
At Triple Threat Theatre Academy we love Tap dance and understand the impact it has on the students attending our classes from teaching rhythm and musicality to providing a great FUN cardio workout.

The complexity of the steps provides exercise for the brain whilst the noise the dancer makes is a great stress reliever - no matter what age you are, making noise with your tap shoes feels good!

We follow the ISTD syllabus but also teaching free classes allowing students to excel and flourish at their own pace.

Lyrical is a beautiful, fluid dance form that incorporates various aspects of Ballet, Jazz, Acrobatics and modern dance.
Its a dance style which is faster paced than ballet but not as fast as Jazz and often the choreography is inspired by the lyrics of the song.

Lots of different types of music are used from pop, rock, hip hop and many more.

Lyrical dance is wonderful for encouraging self expression in dancers from a young age and also is a great outlet for releasing emotions as the dancers relate to the music and choreography.

Street & Commercial

Energetic, Exciting, Popular are just a few words used to describe Street & Commercial dance.
The main reason for its popularity is that its current and its relatable thanks to the music used and the choreography taught.

Our Street/commercial classes offer a complete contrast to the poise and elegance of ballet. Our classes often appeal to children of all ages as they can relate the moves taught in class to performances they may see on the TV or on social media (Think X-Factor backing dancers or pop music videos!)

In our sessions the dancers work on dynamic routines each week, progressing and building on their technique all whilst having lots of Fun!

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you run through the school holidays?

No we are term time only but we do offer Holiday workshops for those who would like to participate.

Do you put students through exams?

No we don't enter our students for dance exams as we believe they have enough pressure on them with school exams. Our emphasis is on performing rather than exams.

We do offer our private singing students the opportunity to take exams with the London College of Music but these are not compulsory.

Will my child take part in any shows?

Yes all our students are invited to take part in 2 shows per year. We hold a Christmas concert and a summer show each year.

What should my child wear if I am bringing them for the first time?

We ask that you bring your child to their free taster and trial classes in loose comfortable clothing that they can move freely in.

Leggings/shorts with a t-shirt and a jumper are perfect with indoor trainers or pumps.

If you then decide to enrol your child in our Academy you can purchase uniform from us directly or from local suppliers.

What qualifications do the teachers hold?

All our dance teachers are qualified with the Imperial Society Of Teachers Of Dance (ISTD) and have worked extensively in the professional world of dance and musical theatre.

All our teachers hold enhanced CRB checks and public liability insurance.

There is always a first aider in the studio during opening hours.

What should my child bring with them?

All your child will need for their class is a water bottle with their name on (water only - no fizzy drinks or juice as when split they make our dance floor sticky and may cause damage)

What age do your classes start from?

For Ballet we take students from 3-18 years
For Musical Theatre & Tap we take students from aged 4 - 18yrs
Street dance classes start for children aged 7 -18 yrs
Private vocal coaching starts from age 8 yrs
Our Lyrical classes start from aged 11 - 18 yrs.

Can I pay weekly?

After the first free class, new starters are then able to pay weekly for the next 3 weeks. Thereafter monthly invoices are sent out and fees are paid in advance at the start of the month.

Can parents watch lessons?

We don't invite our parents into the studio to watch lessons as we find that it can be quite intimidating for our younger students and put them off.

 Also at the moment due to covid restrictions we are operating a drop off and pick up at the door system. However should our younger new starters need their grown up to bring them into the studio and settle them for the first few weeks we are happy for them to do so but we do ask that you wear a face covering if possible.
