Established in 2012, Coopers Edge Ballet School is based in the centre of Coopers Edge on the East side of Gloucester with satellite branches in Churchdown, Hucclecote, Brockworth, and Spirit Health Club, Holiday Inn, Barnwood. It aims to serve the local communities across Gloucester & Cheltenham.
Coopers Edge Ballet School is committed to teaching dance in an inspiring and exciting way, encouraging & nurturing students to develop their own artistry, and explore the wonderful world of dance. Classes will provide a strong basis of technique, and promote a healthy level of discipline, which this - the most challenging of the performing arts - requires.
Our children's ballet classes start with a special pre-school class for children from 2½ years old, then from pre-primary upwards the tuition follows the Royal Academy of Dance Syllabus (RAD).
TAP and MODERN
Our Tap and Modern lessons follow the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing (ISTD) syllabus. They are complimented and combined with free Jazz work and explore these exciting and faster paced dance styles. Little Tappers for children from 4 years old, Modern for children from 6 years old.
MTKids - MUSICAL THEATRE CLASSES
Our MT Kids Musical Theatre classes aim to give children a full experience of putting on a performance. They explore, singing, drama, dancing, stage craft, props and all aspects of theatre performing.
Mini MT Kids for children from 5-7 years old, MT Kids for children from 8 years old upwards and MT Seniors from 11 years old.
These lessons explore both traditional social and performance Irish dance. This increasingly popular style of dance is famous for its fast, energetic leg movements and stationary arms and body. For children from 8 years old.
