AK’s Tiptoes classes offer energetic and imaginative dancing classes in both ballet and tap from walking up to 5 years.

We introduce children to the enchanting world of dance using imagery and fun props to help bring out each child’s creative side.

Our aim is to introduce children into the world of dance in both a safe and caring environment, engaging with their individual personalities, as well as teaching them social skills and correct attitudes to help them progress for when they move on to their school years.

Miss Kim runs all the AK Tiptoes branches and is a fully qualified teacher in both R.A.D and I.S.T.D with years of teaching experience behind her. AK Academy of Dancing is a friendly, family-run dance school offering a range of disciplines that for our Tiptoes pupils to graduate on to.

Classes are held throughout the week in Parkstone, West Moors, Christchurch, Ferndown, Corfe Mullen.
