There are a number of factors that contribute to a fantastic dance class. Venue, atmosphere, other students etc. However nothing is as important as the teacher that runs the class.

At Trivical we ensure that only the very best teachers in the industry represent Trivical.

As well as becoming little champion dancers, we are very serious about safety and all teachers having a current “working with children’s checks” and up to date first aid qualifications.
