Janet Marshall Dance Studios offers extra-curricular dance classes in Ballet, Modern and Tap to students at Dean Close Preparatory School. Janet Marshall Dance Studios is a well renowned and established dance school in the heart of Cheltenham, with an excellent faculty led by Principal Janet Marshall.

During weekly lessons pupils will be taught and graded against the ISTD syllabus alongside other free work, learning the technical requirements of each dance discipline. Alongside this they learn vital coordination skills, build strength, flexibility, musicality and performance skills. Pupils are given creative tasks in class to develop their own individuality and learn how to work as a team with their friends.

Throughout the year there are various performance opportunities, giving pupils the chance to dance onstage for their family and peers, which is a highlight for every pupil.
