Age 3+ to Adult
Mareli School of Dance
Mareli School of Dance was established in 1971 by current principal Judy Cresswell, and remains a family run dancing school. Routed in over 50 years of experience, Mareli continues to evolve to reflect current dance and musical theatre trends.
Our staff include fully qualified I.D.T.A dance teachers, ex-professional dancers and a university lecturer with a doctorate in Dance. Additionally, our staff include qualified primary school teachers and early years practitioners. The diversity amongst our staff helps us to uniquely support our pupils through the provision of exemplary pastoral care.
We are proud to welcome students of all ages and abilities into our school. We provide a platform for aspiring professionals and those wanting to make new friends and improve their confidence. We have excellent success rates with our examinations and full stage productions and we are proud to support our pupils in fulfilling their aspirations of pursuing a career in the industry. However, what makes us most proud is hearing about the friendships that are still thriving from years gone by.
Over the years, Mareli has welcomed back countless ‘grown up’ pupils who have returned to bring their own children and grandchildren to dance classes. Many past pupils return as adults to join in our thriving adult dance classes, allowing Mareli to house multiple members of the same family, genuinely capturing the family environment that we strive to create. The sense of family, friendship, and kindness set us apart from the rest. Dance friends can genuinely be friends for life.
