A dance school is inviting youngsters of all abilities to join in with a programme of fun and excitement.

Alexandra School of Dancing is looking for children aged over two years old to join their classes in ballet, tap and modern dance at the South Hornchurch Community Hall, Nelson Road, Rainham.

School owner Magda Oldchurch said it was the perfect way to have fun and make friends.

She said: “Classes are very structured and follow a strict syllabus, but there is an element of fun and creativity and we also present shows at West End theatres.

“We have children from the age of four in to their 20s attending our classes.

“We have Royal Ballet workshops which are quite special, a ballet photographic session, with full costumed tutus, and, of course, Christmas parties.”

The school was originally based in Romford, for 25 years, before moving to the South Hornchurch Community Hall.

“Plenty of parents have made friends at this small friendly school,” added Magda.

“On Saturday, the main classes are held for ballet, tap and modern at the community hall and on Tuesday evenings there are classes for all ages in ballet.

“Also, on Saturday morning, there is a class for pre-school children aged between 18 months and four years old called First Ballerinas.”

Interested parents can book a trial on the dance school’s website or attend an open day which is taking place on July 23.

Anyone wishing to attend the open day should call Magda on 07765 836796.
