We extend a warm welcome to Stalder Academy 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, we are home to five large indoor dance studios complete with mirrors, barres and Harlequin dance flooring, and one outdoor dance studio under cover.
We also have male/female changing rooms, a gym, 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 and events throughout the year.
Covid -19 has certainly changed the way we operate but we are thrilled to be back at the studio. Limited class numbers, regular cleaning in between classes, new ventilation and additional mitigation such as mask wearing in communal areas and hand sanitiser stations makes the studios as safe as possible for our students. For more information please read our Covid 19 guidelines above.
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 to Stalder Academy
