A family-run dancing school in the centre of Cheltenham, offering fun and rewarding classes of all types, for girls and boys of all ages.

Our pupils enjoy learning to dance in all genres with optional examinations and festivals for those who wish to participate. Our main focus is to develop a confident joy of dance, with good skills in technique and a high level of performance. From toddlers to teenagers, every child is welcome and every child matters.

We offer classes and private tuition with fully qualified and experienced teachers who encourage pupils to develop self esteem and hence reach their full potential. Our lessons at The Richard Pate School, where pupils of the school have the opportunity to learn basic skills in ballet and modern dance, are enthusiastically attended. We also offer pre-school classes at local nurseries and playgroups. Regular classes are held at 'Little Smarties' and 'Richard Pate Nursery'. A 'taster' class can be arranged on request.

Our popular Summer Theatre School - a fun filled week of performing arts - is held at Parabola Arts Centre every summer for children from 4-14 years.
