Haslemere Performing Arts – Dance Classes in Haslemere

After all the restrictions of the pandemic, Haslemere Performing Arts has managed to resume many of its previous enterprises.  RAD Ballet exams have now taken place in person instead of being filmed and, shortly, ISTD Modern & Tap exams are resuming.

For our Saturday Workshop pupils, there is a presentation for the Haslemere Fringe on July 3rd and our Annual Dance Show at the Millennium Hall, Liphook on July 10th  to look forward to.

Pupils are always welcome to try any classes they do not already attend. If they would like to sample a weekday Ballet, Modern, Tap, Street or Musical Theatre class or a a Saturday Workshop, please let us know in advance.


Forty dance, drama & singing items qualified for the British Arts Finals.  Of these, 24 were chosen to be performed at the final concerts on 6th – 8th May at the Polish Institute in London and at the Greenwood Theatre, London on 22ndMay.

Many thanks to all the amazing teachers for their excellent choreography and coaching which has made this season so successful.
