About WTS Dance

The Wirral Theatre School of Dance is registered with the International Dance Teachers Association (IDTA), the largest dance organisation in the world. The Association is a member of the Council of Dance Education and Training.

We provide a comprehensive theatre training which is of benefit to every student whether they wish to pursue a career in the performing arts or not. The confidence, discipline and love of dance and drama gained from professional training will last forever.

The school is committed to providing a high standard of teaching in all theatre disciplines. We cater for both the once a week and vocational students and the beginner to the advanced standard.

The school  has achieved excellent results in all examinations with 100% pass rate, and the majority receiving distinction grades. IDTA exams are now fully accredited OFQUAL and are recognised by the government giving credits to their student profile (ULN) when applying for university places.

Excellent success in both solo and group competition work around the country, including finalists in the All England Dance and Miss Dance of Great Britain. All students have the chance to perform in the annual school show and several other community/local events. We also run courses in IDTA teacher training.

All staff are highly qualified, with visiting lecturers providing workshops throughout the year, some of which support the annual summer school held in July .

We are situated in Ness. Our premises include two timber sprung floor dance studios, welfare facilities and ‘off road’ parking.
