After your introductory lesson, you can keep dancing with us by enrolling at Dance Out Loud.
Once enrolled, your spot is kept in class for a whole year (but you may ‘un-enrol’ if you need to before the year is over) Term fees are paid at the beginning of each term.
There are three terms each year of 13 weeks in duration that roughly follow the school calendar.
Our lessons are designed to show progress over many weeks, and many years! Unfortunately we do not offer casual or ‘drop-in’ classes.

Welcome to the magical world of Dance Out Loud. We are a glittering dance and creative movement studio catering specially for children aged 18mths-8yrs. Our classes were designed by dancer and medical doctor Haylee Solomons, and draw on best practices of child psychology, developmental milestones and movement.
What we offer you won’t find anywhere else! We are very different to other studios, where preschoolers can be seen as an ‘after-thought’ to a bustling program catering for all ages. After graduating from Dance Out Loud, our dancers can choose to continue their dancing careers through vocational ballet exams, competitions, or other styles of dance having had the best possible start.
We are proud to be a CDMT ‘Recognised School.’ The Council for Dance, Drama and Musical Theatre is the primary industry body for quality assurance in dance education in the UK, and is a marker for safe, current, and professional providers. Not every school is awarded ‘Recognised School’ status. This is an indication of the quality of technical dance education we offer.

One of the things that makes us special is that all grownups are invited to watch the class at the beginning, middle and end of the term so as not to miss one magical moment. ‘Watching Weeks’ are important tools to teach young dancers to focus with distraction, and to help overcome social anxiety in a nurturing environment. During the other days in term time, Grownups are welcome to have a cup of tea in the foyer, and will be invited in for the révérence at the end of class.
Brothers and sisters are welcome to sit and watch quietly on their grownup’s lap/in a buggy. If siblings are upset, or fussing we kindly ask that you step outside to settle in order to minimise distractions in class. To avoid disappointment, Brothers and Sisters MUST purchase an introductory pack if they wish to join in.
It is very common for little dancers (no matter how confident) to be shy for the first few lessons. So many different things happen in ballet class it can be overwhelming! That is why we offer a ‘Happiness Guarantee’. If your child doesn’t LOVE their first lesson, you are welcomed back next week at no cost to you. We also have a few tips and tricks to encourage shy dancers if needs be.
In Dance With Me, one parent must dance with their child throughout the whole class. This is very important to help our youngest dancers focus throughout the lesson. In Fairy Ballet, Tutu Ballet and Acro grownups don’t need to join in, but they certainly may during our Watching Weeks if they wish!
We have no uniform at Dance Out Loud. Dancers may come in whatever they feel fabulous wearing! Tights, shorts, tutus, dress-ups, all are welcome. Bare feet are perfect for your first class with us. Please no socks or tights, as this is too slippery for dancing. If you decide to stay with us, we gift you with a new pair of ballet shoes, so no need to buy your own.
Please get in touch with Miss Haylee at firstname.lastname@example.org with any and all questions you may have. We LOVE talking about ballet!
