  Southern School of Dance

About Us

SOUTHERN SCHOOL OF DANCE provides dance lessons for English speaking children from 3 years up.  The majority of our students study ballet and we follow the Royal Academy of Dance syllabi, although classes in ISTD Tap and Modern, funk, hip hop and contemporary dance are also available.  Students are entered for annual RAD and ISTD exams.

We teach at Po Lam, Wong Chuk Hang and Hong Kong Cricket Club (see Dance Classes) and each year our students participate in Dance Productions on stage (see Shows).

We are devoted to the job of ensuring that every student who joins the dance school has the best dance experience possible.  Our dance teachers are all professionally qualified (see Staff).
