Rita Barker School of Dance

Classes for Children from 4 yrs to 18

Rita Barker School of Dance was established in 1985. It was first situated in Acocks Green at Stone Hall Centre. Later we moved to a space in Moseley Village above the shops. Soon it became necessary to find alternative premises which led us to our current location. We offer theatre classes i.e. ballet, tap, contemporary, creative dance and street. Exams are optional in all subjects. Our classes are kept to 14 students maximum per class as we pride ourselves on giving every student individual attention.
