How do I book a free trial class?
DSOD has become like a second home to my daughters who have both been dancing here for more than eight years as have many of their friends. They love the energy, discipline and friendship it brings to their week. Thank you DSOD.
Very Talented teachers, well organised studio and very supportive of the students. Thank you DSOD.
DSOD has a lovely feel as you walk in and my daughter says that she will never stop dancing!
My daughter loves her ballet lessons at Devonport School of Dance. Emily is an excellent teacher and the girls adore her. The school is very professionally run and well equipped. The end of year show is absolutely fantastic too!
I like dance class because I like dancing and having fun with my friends. Miss Emily is nice.

Silver Swan classes at Devonport School of dance are very enjoyable. Emily is such a patient teacher and she makes everyone feel very comfortable regardless of their ability. Lessons are well paced and perfect for beginner. Thank you Emily!
