Our dance school has been established for 20 years. We have a very fun and friendly school and enjoy teaching to over 400 students of all ages and abilities with venues based in and around Garstang.

When taking classes at the Garstang School of Dance parents and children are asked to observe the following:

If you are late we will keep your child with us, observing the following class. Can all younger children please go to the toilet before class!
