The Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing (ISTD) Ballet and Tap syllabuses are offered at Italia Conti Associates Petersfield School. We offer classes from Preliminary (age 5+) to Advanced depending on ability. Examinations are offered to pupils who meet the required standard.

We also offer a Ballet Pointe Class for students who are Grade 5 and above.



Musical Theatre is a combination of acting, singing and dancing. Students learn well known songs/scenes from musicals and the songs are then staged into musical theatre numbers. Teachers encourage pupils to develop and use their personalities in this class. 



Pupils will learn some of the best dance moves as seen in pop videos in a laid-back environment. Jazz and Hip Hop dance is energetic and a fantastic way to get in shape whilst you have fun!

Boost your self-esteem, gain confidence, develop rhythm and co-ordination with exciting choreography.

We also offer Adult Jazz classes every Friday (18+). 


Street Dance is an improvisational, hip-hop inspired dance style. The students will learn different forms of hip-hop dance for example, popping, locking, house and funk-style which is most prominently practiced, and commercialised versions have been professionally developed and choreographed for dance routines in pop, hip-hop and R&B music videos.



The students here will study all aspects of singing, including breathing, support, group singing, solo singing, pop, rock and musical theatre. Not only is singing hugely enjoyable, but it’s an essential tool to help build self-confidence.



Depending on age and ability, classes may cover improvisation, role playing, character and script work, voice and various techniques as appropriate. Students benefit from working on scripts from selected plays leading up to performances. These classes give students opportunities to work as solo performers, developing physical and vocal skills together with acting techniques.


In our Contemporary dance classes, you will learn to move in a creative, freeing and graceful way, while also transforming your posture and balance and improving your fitness.

Our Contemporary class builds up from simple steps and techniques to fully formed routines. It's a fully supportive and suitable for people with little or no dance experience.

The examinations are designed to enrich our students with a range of skills within the acting industry. LAMDA courses are QCA accredited and for Solo/duo examinations at Grades 6,7 & 8 are included in the UCAS tariff, counting as points towards university entrance.​
