Children can join dance classes at Prima from the age of 1½ years old and there are various options for children and teenagers of all ages. Adults with or without experience are also welcomed into certain classes and we have specific adult classes too. Students can choose to take classes for recreational purposes only or in the pursuit of a future career in performing arts.

We have a 100% exam success rate at Prima and we were the very first school in Tyne & Wear to be awarded Recognised School Status by the Council for Dance Education & Training, ensuring high standards of practice and well qualified instructors.

We also have a proven track record with many students passing accredited vocational exams, performing with professional ballet and theatre companies, undergoing teacher training, performing with professional companies and being accepted in vocational ballet schools and dance/musical theatre colleges.
