Dance Classes in Stratford upon Avon

Zest Dance first offered Dance Classes in Stratford upon Avon in 2018. Over the past couple of years the timetable has grown somewhat and we now offer classes for toddlers, children and adults throughout the week. Classes take place within various venues in Tiddington and Alveston.

We are passionate about safe and professional training at Zest Dance, whilst placing the students at the forefront of everything we do. Our fun, friendly environment creates a space where we believe students can grow in confidence, build friendships and develop skills that will stay with them for life.

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

If you have any questions regarding our classes, please do get in touch or book in for your trial session to see what all the fuss is about!

Little Lemons is a really great class! It brings little ones out of themselves and is nicely structured. My little one loves it and dances around the house singing the songs. Miss Frankie is fab, patience of a saint, and a great teacher!

My daughter loves her dance classes with Zest Dance. Miss Frankie is a great teacher. She has very a friendly and patient approach to making the classes fun, whilst helping to build confidence in the young dancers.
Caroline
I am currently doing two classes at Zest Dance - Dancefit Musicals and Adult Ballet. Every week I look forward to these classes as they are a brilliant way of escaping the madness of life for an hour. Great for fitness and great for wellbeing. I would thoroughly recommend Zest Dance!
