About us

At Harlequin Arts Academy in Hadfield, we use modern teaching methods to suit the individual learning needs of our students All classes are taught in large spacious premises, with 2 dance studios, changing rooms and toilet facilities. The main dance studio is equipped with fixed barres and mirrors and has a sprung wooden floor.


We have classes to suit all ages and abilities and beginners are always welcome. Private lessons  are also available on request. From the age of 5 students are able to take dance  examinations with the ISTD and RAD, both of these dance organisations are recognised by the CDET. This means that the dance exams are recognised qualifications and are placed on the national qualifications framework, approved by OFQUAL. From grade 6 upwards, exams can be used towards secondary school diplomas and UCAS points. It also means that teachers have had to pass rigourous exams in order to teach.
