Your Child is in Great Hands


Rosie Baker- School Principal 

Welcome to Performanze dance school. I feel very privileged to be the principal here, working with such a fantastic team of teachers, students and parents.Performanze is a rural based dance school for children aged 2-20 years, a happy, purposeful and flourishing community of around 100 pupils. 

Founded in 1995, the school has been providing an accessible and outstanding education for students and our alumnae have prominent positions in every profession from the performing arts, drama and sport to law, politics and medicine. Dance offers a huge wealth of attributes that lead our students on to achieve and fulfil their dreams.  

Located in the beautiful heart of rural Oxfordshire, we are within easy reach of many major cities so that our girls benefit from a huge range of curriculum-enhancing opportunities such as top industry guest teachers as well as extra-curricular ones including performing in London Westend.   

We provide an exceptional, all-round education. I believe what makes Performanze a really special place to dance is its blend of excellence of pastoral care and rounded dance development in a nurturing environment. The Performanze staff are highly professional: their dedication underpins the warmth and vibrancy of this dance community. The girls are articulate and confident as well as warm and caring. Performanze is a place where friendships and special memories are created and where a love of dance, movement and music is established. Your children will understand that success requires hard work, personal responsibility, respect and consideration for others. These qualities will remain with them, equipping him or her for future challenges and providing an edge in years to come.  

Your child can join a school with real spirit and energy, which lives each day to the full. Together with the staff and girls I encourage you to come and get a real sense of what makes a Performanze dance education so exciting, enriching and relevant.
