"Thankyou so very much for giving E the wonderful experience of dancing in a show. She was still buzzing this morning and has proudly taken the programme into school for show and tell. We all really enjoyed the show and I did shed a few happy tears watching."


All students have the opportunity to perform in our whole school shows, which we work towards in classes and perform in a theatre. These are held every 18 months to showcase our dancers' super talent and are very much looked forward to and enjoyed by all.

Our previous shows have included 'Cinderella'  in 2016, 'NOW! That's What I Call Dance!', in 2017 and 'Dancing Through the Kaleidoscope' at The Joseph Rowntree Theatre in June 2019, which sold out! Shows provide a fantastic opportunity for students to work on performance skills and build confidence. The shows have full lighting and costumes, which students love trying on and keeping afterwards! The experience of taking part in a big show, performing in a theatre and having dressing rooms, whilst being looked after by our brilliant team of DBS checked chaperones, is very exciting and great fun.

Families and friends love seeing their children's beaming faces as they perform with pride. Our shows are always exciting events.

"Congratulations on a wonderful show – it was a truly amazing performance, very enjoyable, lovely venue and the show story and production was fantastic."

I.D.T.A. Exams

Hayley is an Associate Member of the International Dance Teachers’ Association (IDTA), and is pleased to offer exam opportunities to her students through this prestigious organisation.

Students have the opportunity to perform routines they learn in class for Freestyle medal tests. These exams offer a fun and relaxed environment for dancers to achieve in, with a very friendly atmosphere. We are very proud of our excellent results and 100% pass rate. We hold awards presentations and parties to celebrate afterwards, whcih are always lots of fun!. These optional exams see our dancers grow in confidence and strive to improve, but most of all, they offer a very enjoyable and fun performance opportunity!

Students have often left the exam room jumping up and down, asking when the next session will be, as they can't wait to do it again!

"Lots of very happy children who clearly love their dance teacher!! Thankyou very much Hayley."

"M has enjoyed every moment and it was so wonderful for us to see her confidence and progress!"


We regularly hold fun, friendly dance competitions that are open exclusively to the students Hayley teaches from both Evolution Dance (classes and private students), and Tread the Boards.

The competitions provide another fantastic performance opportunity and have a great atmosphere. They are judged by friendly independent qualified dance teachers/performers.

Everyone who takes part receives recognition for their talent, with every dancer being presented with an award for each category they have performed in, giving students a real sense of pride and achievement.

The competitions are looked forward to by students and parents/carers alike and anticipated with much excitement.
