All ballet and modern dance classes in the Pre-Prep School are taken by staff from the Janet Marshall Dance Studios, based here in Cheltenham.

    Janet Marshall has been teaching in Cheltenham for over 30 years and for many of those years at Dean Close School. Her staff bring a wealth of different experience to dance, are fully qualified and checked in accordance with the Children Act. Over the years the School has gained a reputation for its careful and caring approach to the teaching of young children and students. All classes are based on the syllabus of the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing. The syllabus is fun and structured and examinations may be taken once the required standard is attained - thus giving the children a sense of purpose and achievement.
