We know that parents will want to see what we can offer their child before committing to a Dance Studio. For this reason, we offer a free trial in all dance classes and then we charge for only a half term's fees at a time. Current students can also try out new classes for free, which they will then be able to join at a discounted rate. Some classes have a waiting list, for which we apologise but we will do our best to get you in as soon as possible.
Stage Stars Trial - Saturdays
Our Saturday stage school has a two week trial charged at the discounted rate of £25 regardless of age or group (£45 for a pair of siblings). This trial is charged because we have found over the years that our stage school on Saturdays is such an exciting, all encompassing session that really builds a strong group with our children, and so sometimes the first week is just about new children getting used to it, getting familiar with the surroundings, tutors and new friends.
Then on the second week there are suddenly familiar faces, comfortable surroundings and the child is no longer the newbie - they generally then settle in very quickly. With a one week trial, some children would miss out by not getting past that first week. We ask parents to pay so we know we will see you again for the second week - if after a free one week trial a child says, "I'm not sure, I didn't know anyone, it's all new!", you have nothing invested and might think, "OK, we'll try something else." But we know that when they come back, they will love it. Our experience shows us that some children take a couple of weeks to settle in to our awesome, full-on stage school experience at Stage Stars.

Planning your visit
We are based at The Link which is located under the flyover at Harrow Manor Way, London SE2 9BS, where Bazalgette Way (formerly Belvedere Road) meets Sewell Road. The entrance is slightly concealed under the bridge, around the corner. If you tell the Link's reception staff that you are visiting Theatre Street Centre for the Performing Arts, they will point you in the right direction.
The Centre is close to the M25 (20 mins), A2 (10 mins), the Blackwall Tunnel (20 mins) and the Dartford Crossing (25 mins). We are approx 30 mins drive from Central London. There is ample free parking on Belvedere Road. Please be advised we are UNDER the elevated roundabout - your SatNav might say you have arrived when you are still on the road above. Continue south down the hill, round the roundabout as if you were coming back up to the flyover and take Harrow Manor Way which veers off to the left.
Abbey Wood Station is just ten minutes walk away, and is on the Dartford Line from Central London. (30 minutes). Crossrail to Abbey Wood is coming in 2018.
The old 'Library' bus stop reached via bus numbers: 177, 229, 244, 401 601, 602, 669 (school journeys) B11 (24 hour bus)
"Wow, I don't know what to say: Nice people! Training is professional. Very lively, especially the dance. I would recommend you take a look."
