Established in April 2009. Located in Beauly (12 miles from Inverness). Dance students enjoy excellent training facilities including harlequin sprung floor, ballet barres, mirrored walls, reception and changing area.
This highly recommended dance school offers training to students from age 3 years to Professional/Teacher level. Students follow The British Association of Teachers of Dancing (BATD) syllabi in Ballet, Tap, Jazz and Modern. In addition, Contemporary/Lyrical and Commercial dance is offered under the Freestyle branch of BATD.
Students have opportunity to take grade examinations through BATD, an organisation validated by the Council of Dance Education and Training. Graded and vocational examinations are courses of study which provide opportunity to achieve a high level in dance performance. The higher level qualifications may be accepted as benchmarks of achievement by vocational dance/performance schools and/or be taken in to account by dance teacher education.
Undertaking grade work requires between one year and 14 months of weekly and/or twice weekly dance class attendance. Consideration is given to students wishing to attend class midway through a grade level. Please contact the school to establish the possibility of attendance in such a circumstance. As well as examination opportunity students are encouraged to participate in performance related events such as school productions at Eden Court Empire Theatre, Strictly Inverness, Galas, Workshops and Masterclasses.
To maintain the integrity of teaching/training it is school policy that students only receive their ongoing teaching/training through Dance In Action Studio in the dance genre they are taking. Attending Ballet West Associates/Scottish Ballet Associates is acceptable as aim is to supplement teaching/training provided by the student's regular dance school/teacher. Attending one off workshops/summer schools etc. is also acceptable. In addition, as representatives of the school we ask that students are not also a dance company/dance crew member of another organisation where they perform/compete in the same dance genre as the teaching/training they receive at the school.
