Why Choose The Weston?
The School aims to cater for everyone. Children are accepted from the age of three years, and we provide classes for all ages, including adults. Children can train in ballet, modern theatre dance, tap and (when they are a little older) jazz, musical theatre and street dance. Adults, too, can attend most of these disciplines and there are beginners' classes in tap. The majority of our students want to dance for sheer pleasure, some will want to work towards examinations and others may want to make dancing their career. Whatever their aims we give them every encouragement to achieve them.
Dancing should be fun! Our first priority is that students enjoy themselves, safely and under the eye of experienced teachers. But dancing also provides other benefits: exercise and an improvement in posture and co-ordination; development of confidence and social skills; musical and artistic appreciation; the cultivation of imagination, to mention a just a few.
All of our teachers have been through Enhanced CRB checks. Most of our teachers are qualified with the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing (ISTD) and those who are working towards their teaching qualifications are regularly monitored. All are enthusiastic and work hard to ensure that a high standard of teaching is maintained at all levels.
The Weston is a business partnership which aims to provide a friendly and personal atmosphere for students and parents.
