This summer here at The Lodge School of Theatre Dance, we are thrilled to announce that we will be once again running one of our highly-acclaimed Summer Intensive courses. Our summer dance school in Reading includes disciplines such as ballet, tap, contemporary and musical theatre; we will have something for everyone. Designed for students aged 8-16, our classes represent a great opportunity for dancers to try out a new style that they've perhaps always wanted to do. Even if you're well practised in your particular discipline the nature of these classes will help you to improve your skills and abilities!...
