Welcome to Butterflies Dance & Performing Arts

At Butterflies Dance and Performing Arts we offer a wide range of classes, covering different dance styles, singing, acting and fitness for all ages and abilities.

Throughout the academic year, students work towards examinations and regular performances from intimate shows of limited audience to being part of larger productions. Pupils are given the opportunity to show off their skills and stagecraft with increasing confidence and encouragement.

Look out for our intensive courses in new styles to sample something new and exciting.

Based in Thirsk our new state of the art facilities have been purpose-built to deliver outstanding lessons.  We have an enviable reputation of having trained many students over our 16 years in business, some of whom have gone on to higher education in Dance and Performing Arts with some even appearing on TV, pop music videos and major parts in performances.

Our classes cater for ages 3 to 99!  We offer a variety of classes so why not get in touch with us to arrange a taster session or come and view one of our classes.
