Start your child off early in learning balance, posture, rhythm, flexibility, grace and coordination from our professional instructors. Our Mirrors Kids Program aims to build self-confidence, communication, teamwork skills, and social awareness through the art of ballroom dance. Your child will feel a sense of accomplishment while exercising and having fun!
We teach everything you see on “Strictly Come Dancing!” :-)
If your son or daughter enjoys watching ‘Strictly’, listening to the music, is excited by the costumes and is affected by the utter joy of dancing… they might be the next Fred Astaire or Ginger Rogers!
Our Children’s classes run during School Terms, Tuesdays, 5-5:45pm

There is no need to book, but you might want to join at the beginning of a new Dance, so please feel free to contact us on the email address opposite for more information.
Although we do have a Uniform, we understand that some children come straight from school and don’t have time to change. Therefore the Uniform is a choice, for if they like to feel part of the Club. (Makes a nice Christmas or Birthday present)
FOOTWEAR: Once the children have been dancing a little while, you will want to invest in some specific ‘Suede Sole Dancing Shoes’ (a.k.a. Ballroom & Latin Shoes).
We only ask that you choose Silver for girls and black for boys please, so they are able to perform in these for Synchronised Medal Days and Performances.
Every year the children are offered the opportunity to partake in an IDTA (International Dance Teachers Association) Medal Day; where an Independent Examiner comes to Grade their dancing ability and give feedback on how they might personally improve their dancing technique. They receive Certificates and Awards according to their level – we have 100% pass rate over a 10 year period.
Every two years the children are given the opportunity to dance as part of the whole school in our bi-annual ShowCase Ball! Where they perform as a group, learn the very important skill of performance to an audience, and their family can come and enjoy their achievements. A great experience for those who may want to enter Dance as a profession, musical theatre or stage work.
"I encouraged my daughter to join Mirrors Kids as she was shy and I hoped it would help her confidence. She has really come out of herself through dancing! She loves to perform! And has always felt welcome by the Instructor team and children in classes."
"My son loves Mirrors Kids. He is aiming for a career in Musical Theatre or Dance, and they have helped him with Audition Techniques, advice and excellent training for the past 3 years. Valuable tuition and training."
"Mirrors Kids does not just teach children to dance. They also teach how to participate as part of a group. They allow the parents to watch each session, so you can see your child's progress week by week. It is really moving when they achieve their goals over time."
"My daughter loves dressing up, and they allow her to wear her favourite dresses to lessons each week, which she loves. The teachers are kind, but professional and definitely keep the children's attention. Quality lessons."
