Children’s Classes (5+) Halifax & Calderdale

Dance Classes

Updated April, 2021

Our mission here at Northern Arts Factory is to nurture your children’s confidence so that they blossom, learn and shine. From their earliest days, children have a natural urge to dance, sing and perform.

We will empower your child by creating a safe space for all children to experiment whilst having fun, to make mistakes without judgement, to value perseverance and work together, helping each other be the best they can be.
