This opportunity is open to all of our existing students as well as any outside students who may be looking for a more challenging and real experience within the performing arts that will take them to the next level.

Classical Ballet, Jazz, Contemporary, Lyrical, Musical Theatre/Song & Dance, Hip Hop, Tap, Singing and Acrobatics.


Just wanted to say how much fun Annabelle had at baby ballet today. We enjoyed the online classes- but being back at the studio brought her so much joy... we were up at 4:30 ready to go to the studio with the big girls ? Congratulations on reopening and doing everything to keep us connected during the forced shut down period.

The school runs workshops across all styles of dance and musical theatre. Students and other dancers from around the area are given exciting opportunities to expand their knowledge of dance and express their creativity outside of regular classes. The director Diana Sakaris is highly experienced in dance and teaching, creating a professional yet supportive and fun environment for all teachers and students. Miss Di’s warm and loving nature means the studios are more than just a school but a second home where students can be nurtured while they grow as people, as well as artists.

My daughter Jessie loves putting on her favourite tutu each week, singing and dancing around with Twinkle in her babyballet class. The lessons are lots of fun and she loves the mix of ballet and tap. The classes are wonderfully supportive, talented teachers and gives us a lovely opportunity to meet new mums and the kids meet new friends!

My daughter has only been at Tempo Red for two terms but in that time her dance skill and ability has grown exponentially as has her self-confidence. This is due to the passionate, professional staff, very talented, experienced teachers and a culture that fosters support and encouragement between the kids. From day one the girls in Zivas’ class took her under their wing and welcomed her.
