Dance Classes in New Milton

In September 2020, Zest Dance New Milton was launched, offering professional dance lessons to toddlers, children and adults in the heart of the South Coast. We have a wide range of dance classes for all the family to try throughout the week.

We believe in creating a safe and nurturing space for students to achieve their goals. We aim to teach more than just dance by instilling skills and making memories that will last a lifetime. Our students are always in the forefront of everything we do and we believe in celebrating all their individual goals and achievements.

Alongside our weekly timetable, we also offer dance sessions within nurseries and schools in the local area surrounding New Milton.

If you have any questions regarding our dance classes, please do get in touch or book in for your trial session now! We look forward to welcoming you soon.

My daughter absolutely loves her dance lessons and looks forward to her weekly meetings with the lovely Miss Ciara. The lessons are fun and engaging. It shows that Miss Ciara has a passion for dance and she is kind and caring.

The adult dance fitness class is really good fun! A good combination of cardiovascular work and targeted toning exercises, with a fun dance routine at the end. And all done to musicals! 2nd class done, and loving it! Thanks Ciara

We highly recommend Zest dance school. My daughter (aged 6) has been part of Street Dance for about 6 months now and loves every minute.Miss Ciara is so patient and kind and the children love her and her teaching.
