Protègèm Dance School & Youth Dance Company was founded in 2003.
We audition places for our Junior, Senior and Elite dance companies 1-2 times per year.
We offer classes in Ballet, Tap, Street Jazz, Musical Theatre, boys only street following the IDTA syllabus and AQA GCSE Performing Arts (Dance.)
Our students are aged 2yrs - adult
We are proud of our 100% exam pass rate and high standards
Street takes any form of popular music - from pop to hip hop - and choreographs routines to the beats. Street is what you see on all the music channels and Top of the Pops. Some of the most successful pop acts have made it big by combining Streetdance routines with their tunes and lyrics.
Protègèm Dance Company is a combination of our 3 youth dance companies, Junior, Senior and Elite which cater for talented young dancers aged 8 - 20+
Its aim is to support, nurture and encourage young dancers talents and to provide them with performance opportunities.
Our boys classes are very fun and energetic, encorporating the technique of street dance (rhythm, spatial awareness, performance, presentation and co-ordination) with tricks and stunts thats currently all the rage. The boys get to take exams and perform in shows and we are really looking forward to taking them to competition in the future!
For those keen to take a nationally recognised qualification, Protegem is proud to offer GCSE Performing Arts as an after school course.
We offer the course to students as they enter Year 9 at school, which means they will already have attained their GCSE before all the compulsory ones at school!
GCSE Performing Arts/Dance teaches appreciation, choreography, theory and technique as well as developing study skills that are necessary for year 11 exams and further education.
This classical style of expressive movement has something to offer for everyone. Ballet dates back to the 17th century. The conventional steps, grace and fluidity of movement are still found in Ballet today.
