We extend a warm welcome to you and thank you for your interest in our thriving school.

Stalder Academy offers a diverse range of both recreational and professional dance, gymnastics and performing arts classes for all ages and levels. We cater for both the beginner 'once a week' student, who wants to improve their confidence and make new friends, as well as the serious theatre student who's aim is to make dance and the performing arts their future career.

Based in the centre of Sale across two different venues, we are home to 7 large indoor dance studios complete with mirrors, barres and Harlequin dance flooring, and one outdoor dance studio under cover. 

We also have male/female and adult changing rooms, lounge area, as well as an onsite shop for all your dance wear needs.

All of our staff are fully qualified, DBS checked and have the skills and knowledge to teach all ages and abilities in a safe and professional environment.  

Our year is divided into six terms, and pupils are regularly entered for dance, drama and singing examinations as well as taking part in regional, national and international festivals, pantomimes, shows and events throughout the year.

Covid-19 has certainly changed the way we operate. Although restrictions have now eased considerably we still have various systems in place to make everyone feel save and secure whilst at the studios.  

At Stalder Academy our aim is to unleash each individual performer's potential no matter of their age or ability. 

We look forward to welcoming you.
