Susan Handy Dance has been training children and adults in dance and performance since 1974.

We offer classes from the age of 18 months up to adults of any level and ability.

With the main studio in Eton, Susan Handy Dance has classes across the Royal Borough including Windsor, Datchet, Old Windsor and Eton Wick. We also have branches of the school across the Woking area in Surrey at Du Feu Dance, and in Ickenham, Middlesex at The Ickenham School of Dance. In addition, we run a number of dance clubs in many local schools, nurseries and health clubs.

Having trained at The Royal Ballet School and dancing professionally with Sir Kenneth MacMillan and Dame Margot Fonteyn amongst others, Susan Handy continues to pass on her love of dance and her passion for the discipline of a classical training in order to form good foundations for all forms of dancing.

Our highly qualified teaching staff nurture and inspire the students whether they wish to pursue a career as a dancer or whether they simply just love to dance.

All teachers are qualified and experienced in their field, DBS CHECKED and FIRST AIDERS.

All Junior lessons have class assistants and our ballet classes are accompanied by classically trained pianists.

INTRODUCING this pioneering CONTEMPORARY DANCE syllabus born from the partnership between two of the world's leading contemporary dance organisations: Rambert Dance Company and Rambert School.        The 8-grade syllabus offers students the opportunity to develop lifelong skills.

Rambert Grades encourage young people to own their individuality, be playful, work in a present manner, think independently, relate with others and have confidence in decision making while learning and embodying our three strands:  Technique - Performance - Creative

The Rambert Grades syllabus is progressive and inclusive and is designed to be accessible for people from all backgrounds.

Rambert Grades teachers are taught to promote a safe environment where physical explorations can exist without rigidity, yet with focus, discipline, and collaboration. Students are seen as individuals and encouraged to express their ideas and discover their unique voices.

Each grade includes exploring how to create material and improvise;  learning all elements of technical skill to the highest standard from floorwork to complex leaps and performing solo material from renowned choreographers Hofesh Shechter and Alesandra Seutin.

RAMBERT GRADES IS AN AWARDING ORGANISATION RECOGNISED BY THE OFFICE OF QUALIFICATIONS & EXAMINATIONS REGULATIONS ( OFQUAL)
