Our aim is to help every child reach their full potential, teaching them the discipline, poise and grace that comes from quality dance training. We fully believe dancers should have the opportunity to perform & showcase their talent, so all students have the opportunity to perform in our full-scale show, as well as enter for ISTD examinations and perform at local events.

Available Classes

Pre-School Ballet – 2 and a half - 4 year olds

This class offers an introduction to Ballet for 2-4 year olds in a safe and nurturing environment. Emphasis is on imagination and fun, while teaching them basic ballet technique and discipline. We use lots of props (fairy wings and wands, ribbons, feathers) to really bring the class to life for little ones. Classes start from age 2 and a half – children need to be happy to be left at class wihtout a parent watching (parents do not stay in the room as this proves a distraction to their learning). Their language skills also need to be developed enough for them to listen and follow direction – each child will reach this point at a different age, some by 2 and a half, some closer to 3+.

Classical Imperial Ballet –
4 years and up

These classes follow the Imperial Ballet ISTD syllabus, where students have the opportunity to work towards examinations. The discipline in this training will improve a child’s posture, coordination, musicality and grace.

Modern Theatre Dance –
4 years and up

This class encapsulates all styles of dance you might see in a modern theatre – from jazz to lyrical, street to contemporary. Emphasis is on the learning of solid technique, increasing strength, coordination, musicality, rhythm and stage presence. Classes follow the ISTD syllabus, where there is the opportunity to enter for examinations.

Tap Dance –
4 years and up

This class follows the ISTD syllabus, where focus is on learning footwork and rhythm, combining these to create exciting variations. The new ISTD Tap syllabus is very current, with styles as diverse as musical theatre, jazz and hip hop.

Acrobatic Dance -
5 years and up

This class follows the Acrobatic Arts syllabus, a training system from Canada. Classes are focussed on building up flexibility, strength and tumbling skills. Please note Acrobatic Dance cannot be taken as a lone subject, students must also study either Ballet or Tap and Modern.

Meet Our Teachers

Since my daughter has been attending Cari’s Ballet and tap class her confidence
and concentration has grown as well as her enthusiasm for music and dance,
which is really lovely to see. She looks forward to her lesson
every week and I love hearing all about it.


Mum to Tula (age 4)
My daughter Daisy absolutely loves going to the Tap and Modern class.  Cari has a lovely way of engaging the children to perform the class dance routines and she also gives them space to come up with their own creative interpretations for the parents open session. This is the first dance class Daisy has wanted to go back to.  Daisy says the classes are fun and she loves the music.


Mum to Daisy (age 9)
As an ex professional dancer it was important to me for my daughter to attend a school that didn’t compromise technique and also gave them the performance element. Marlow School of Dance is a great school to accomplish all of that. Cari has a great way of getting the best out of her students while they are also having fun and making friendships.


Mum to Maisie (age 16)
Both of my daughters started with the school when they were 2.5 years old and both have absolutely loved every session!  It is one of the highlights of their week, they love wearing the uniform, learning new dance routines in the lessons, meeting new people and finding a new confidence in themselves.  They both love their teachers and settle into each class with ease, always happy for me to leave them and they come out smiling and full of energy and enthusiasm.
