The L E Ray School of Dance in Castle Cary & Bruton – Tap, Ballet and Modern Theatre Dance for all Children Aged 3 Upwards

The L E Ray School of Dance has been established in Castle Cary for over 15 years. We are delighted to now also be offering classes in Bruton! Classes are graded to suit ability and are of mixed age groups. My personal philosophy on teaching dance is that it can be for anyone who enjoys it! Regardless of age and ability, anyone can achieve!

Most people know what to expect from a Ballet or Tap class, but I often get asked 'what is Modern Dance?' Think of Musical Theatre - Cats, Fame, and think of X-Factor backing dancers! I describe it to the children as High School Musical style! The class incorporates a warm up, stretching and strengthening, and dance steps to perform in both Jazz and Lyrical (floaty!) styles.

I am always delighted to welcome new pupils and fees can be paid on a weekly basis to start off with so you can try for a few weeks to make sure you want to stay before paying out a larger amount. Term fees are pre-paid at the start of each term. Term fees are also discounted. Further discounts are given to siblings and for attending all 3 dance styles.

We have a uniform which is compulsory, but not expected straight away, again I like to let you try-before-you-buy! Our uniform can be purchased from 'Jennifer's Dancewear' at Woodside Court in Sparkford. We also have a second hand uniform sale system to help out.

Health and safety are also so important, and so jewellery is not worn in class. Piercings that cannot be taken out must be covered with micropore tape or plasters. Also Hair must be tied back and with fringes out of eyes! It is important for a dancer to be able to see clearly!!

The L E Ray School of Dance offers its pupils the opportunities to take examinations, perform in shows for charity, and even enter a competition!

Ultimately, the L E Ray School of Dance is about an activity for Children of all ages which is fun! We also achieve, get exercise, improve our skills in co-ordination and brain-training, increase our strength and flexibility, and gain confidence and posture.

For class times and to come and have a try, please contact me, Miss Louise.
