Under 5's Classes

Under 5's classes are held on Saturday mornings. Pre- school ballet for under 4's and Ballet and tap for children aged 4 upwards who are in reception at school. Click on the timtetable link below for more information.



Classes for 5-18 year olds

We offer weekly classes in Ballet, Tap, Modern Theatre and Acrodance. From 5 years of age classes are combined as a triple set giving children a taster of each style. As children progress classes seperate into more structured sessions focusing on the specific genres. Acro classes are not combined classes.

Adult Classes

Dancing is, by and large, a social activity. With that in mind we host adult classes where you can meet other like minded people and de stress from your daily routines. Adult classes are available in Tap and Ballet.

Hello and welcome to our website

Mission Statement

Our aim is to provide an educational insight into the world of dance, encouraging students to be confident in realising their own ideas and potential without the normal barriers and constraints imposed by society. To create a safe, stimulating environment in which to share the enjoyment of the arts and help students to develop new skills whilst achieving something of personal value helping them to grow in confidence, body and self image in a non discriminatory environment.

About us

At Harlequin Arts Academy in Hadfield, we use a variety of teaching methods to suit the individual learning needs of our students. All classes are suitable for boys and girls.


We have classes to suit different ages and abilities and beginners are always welcome. Private lessons  are occasionally 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 OFQUAL. This means that the dance exams are recognised qualifications and are placed on the national qualifications framework. 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.


Don't just take our word for it, see what others have to say about us.
