Carter School Of Dance
We at Carter School Of Dance offers the opportunity to gain enjoyment and confidence from a dance experience tailored for each and every individual that walks through our door. From nursery age to adults, we provide our students with professional dance education and training in a range of dance styles, with termly examinations from the Royal Academy of Dance and Imperial Society of Teachers of Dance.

Our range of classes includes:

  • Ballet
  • Modern / Jazz
  • Tap
  • Acrobatics (“Acro”)
  • Pilates for Dancers
  • Contemporary Dance for Adults

We endeavour to create possibilities to explore the art of dance for all participants that wish to join us and gain skills and learning in dance. We aim to teach the principles of sound technique to achieve a strong standard of dance. We will actively encourage the progression of balletic training through the structured syllabi of the Royal Academy of Dance. Where as for the progression of Modern and Tap training, we plan sessions based on the structured syllabi of the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dance. Where appropriate, for students who are clearly gifted, we provide information and support on how to pursue their talent via scholarships and specialist schools.


We are currently based at Sele School in Hertford, who were awarded the Arts Council’s prestigious Artsmark Gold award in 2010. They have a large gymnasium and a hall with its own piano, plus a modern, purpose-built dance studio, with barres, mirrors and a sound-system. It is the ideal place to hold our classes as the considerable space available is vital for young dancers to explore the freedom of movement. You can easily access our base with free car parking adjacent to the building, which is very important, especially for younger families. There is also a waiting area and changing facilities too.

Everybody here at the school aims to create an inclusive and supportive environment for our students and encourage their parents/carers to be part of the progression and experiences. Our team of qualified and highly experienced teachers are always happy to talk to families as we strive to work in an open and encouraging atmosphere.
