Founded in 1989, Rosemary Woodwark School of Dance is widely recognised as one of  South Devon’s premier schools for dance from Ballet to Jazz, Modern to Tap… we have something for all forms of dance.   All our students are prepared for classes and the Annual Shows. They dance for enjoyment, sociability, fitness.  If you so wish students may also take examinations, not every student wishes to take an exam. or it may not be time practical. A key feature is that students take the exams at different times some may take them quickly and other times more slowly due to developmental growth, etc. they are not held back. Also some students may take part in dancing festivals/competitions and concerts. Our students may also participate in school productions, pantomimes, concerts, shows, work experience for dance, please give notice if you wish to do so.  Many of our students go on to take dance at university, colleges and careers.


Parents may watch classes due to the transport problems,  but it is recommended that from Grade 1 up that they watch for a shorter period. Private Lessons watch when you wish. Students are prepared for Exams in all subjects:


• Royal Academy of Dance – Ballet
• Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing – Modern Theatre, Jazz and Tap.

• Melody Bear Movement – for the younger students.
