Selwyn House Dance Programme

Thank you for considering the Selwyn House Dance Programme for your child’s training. Silhouette Studios are excited to be managing the programme from January onwards. Our dance school has an excellent reputation and we pride ourselves on the nurturing and inspiring style of our tutoring as well as exceptional assessment and examination results.

We are looking forward to working with your child in 2021.


Classes will begin on Monday 1st February

Please note that we also run a full dance studio venue in Burnside so if you are interested in another dance class option then click here for that timetable.


We begin our youngest dancers with combination classes which have a mixture of both ballet, jazz & lyrical foundations. Dance at this young age is about learning good technique through fun interactive exercises and dances. When children are ready, they will progress into the next level and classes will start to split and separated class options will become available.

Ballet – We teach our children the internationally recognized BBO Ballet syllabus. These include optional exams/assessments.

Jazz/Lyrical – This is an exciting class combining Jazz dance and expressive Lyrical dance. Children will be taught the SCS Commercial syllabus exercises as part of their training and learn routines. All music is appropriate for each age group and regularly checked.


The students in the Selwyn House Dance Programme will be invited to perform in their own concert at the end of the year

We will also be offering students the opportunity to do solo routines for medal tests and competitions. Please contact us if you would like more information about this.


All our tutors are fully qualified and regularly attend professional development courses. They teach strong technique and dance skills in a kind and inspiring way.
