Aspire Dance & Stage has been established since 2011, offering training for beginner to elite level, for children aged 4 to 18. Classes are run in grades, open groups and private lessons.
Aspire hold a membership with the IDTA and all graded classes are based on their framework, along with British Gymnastics Proficiency Awards and Acrobatic Arts for our Gymnastics classes.
We would be very happy to welcome your child to our Aspire Family, whether they would like a new hobby, to build confidence & socialise, or to pursue a career in the Performing Arts industry.
Group classes work towards examinations and these are usually taken once a year.
We alternate between a Show and a Showcase each year, so our students are always working towards something exciting.
Our shows are held at the Bolton Albert Halls and involve all of our students performing on stage in costume - our students absolutely love it and it gives them a chance to inspire and be inspired!
Our showcases are very different, they are held at the Last Drop Village and involve our students performing a short collection of dances in uniform, followed by a gala dinner, a presentation of awards and a disco to celebrate their hard work!
Both shows and showcases are a great opportunity for parents to watch their child perform and to see their progress year on year!
Festivals are an excellent opportunity for students that are wanting to progress quickly and who are willing to compete and gain feedback whether that be positive or constructive.
They are a great way to develop and gain confidence, as well as seeing what else is out there in the dance world.
At Festivals you can compete in all styles of dance from Ballet to Jazz to Commercial, even Vocal; in either solo, duo, trio or team.
Competition teams are advertised for audition periodically and solos/duos/trios are entered by invitation only, but if this is something your child would like to be considered for please express your interest to us.
