Dance Studios

at Chichester College

Our Dance Studios' aim is to provide this high quality dance training across a variety of genres to boys and girls of all ages and experience.

Students will be able to follow a training system established by the ISTD or just attend for pleasure and the enjoyment that participation in dance gives.


Exams will be available through the ISTD to those who wish to undertake them at the Dance Studios but they will by no means be compulsory.
