Since opening in 1970 we have had 100% success rate in examinations and our experience
We have also lead many pupils to progress further to attain full scholarships for the Royal Ballet, West End Stage productions and TV appearances on ITV, BBC and Nickelodeon.
We offer a range of dance styles including Ballet, Tap, Street, Freestyle, Ballroom, Latin, Salsa and Sequence.
All our teachers are qualified with the IDTA with two members being examiners.
Director and dance teacher Adults
Hi I am Tristan Edgar and the Director of the Tristan Dance Studios. I am proud that we are a family business and built our studios over the last 40 years. We have built a reputation of offering friendly fun and educational dance lessons in all styles of dance.
I am proud we have passed on our passion and love of dance to so many customers throughout the years. I look forward to many more.
Dance Teacher - Children
I am Lindsay, my role within the studios involves teaching the children on a Saturday morning working towards competitions and shows.
I love to perform on the stage, it's something that I gained as a child.
The children would say I am a perfectionist but this has worked wonders in getting them prepared for exams, pantomimes or competitions
I am Nigel Edgar FIDTA teacher and examiner with the IDTA.
I mainly do the adult Ballet classes and also teacher training for our next generation of Ballet teachers.
I am often asked to examine around the world by the IDTA and have run sessions in China and Japan to name a few places.
I am fully qualified with the IDTA in ballet, Jazz, Theatrecraft and Tap dance.
Ballroom and Latin teacher
My name is Elaine and I am Tristan's mum. I started the business over 40 years ago and it has grown and grown. I am also an examiner for the IDTA and regular adjudicator for competitions.
I mainly work with the over 50's classes, special needs groups and trainee teachers.
