About us

At Harlequin Arts Academy in Glossop, we use modern teaching methods to suit the individual learning needs of our students All classes are taught in large spacious premises, with changing rooms and toilet facilities. 


We have classes to suit all 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 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.
