As the UK’s leading junior dance club we understand how important it is to keep children occupied and having fun. This is why we’re dedicated to offering brilliant dance lessons for children in Tameside.
Your kids can learn the latest dance styles such as Ballroom, Latin and Disco and they’ll learn chart dances just like they’ve seen on TV.
There’s a lot of emphasis on keeping kids active these days and dancing is great fitness for kids. As well as the fitness benefits, dance also helps children improve their sense of rhythm, co-ordination and builds their self-confidence.
Dance is currently the fastest growing art form in the country and a fabulous hobby for children, most of all here at Donahey’s our children’s dance classes are great FUN….
Any child can dance regardless of age, shape, size or background and whether or not they have danced before. Dancing has it’s attraction because of the many different styles & rhythms on offer from around the world, here at Donahey’s we strive to teach the children all the latest styles to the most popular music – a fab combination all in one class!
A recent Arts Council survey of over 50,000 year 9 pupils in over 700 schools in the northwest showed dance as the top activity for girls outside school. Donahey’s also actively encourages boys to attend our dance classes.
Donahey’s teach to IDTA examination standards and have become the UK’s leading Junior Dance Club due to it’s commitment to the children, constantly teaching new dances and it’s emphasis on making the classes fun.
For your peace of mind we are Enhanced CRB Police Checked, have a Tameside MBC Child Protection Policy in place and we are St John’s First Aid at work trained.

Below are some recent comments from parents, Sept ’12;
Jodie lovers her dance classes every Tuesday, she looks forward to it every week
My daughter thoroughly enjoys her Donahey’s dance lessons, and looks forward to coming every week. She has more discipline and better co-ordination. Since joining, she also has more confidence making her own dances up.
My daughter has grown in confidence, and says her classes are good & fun
Mollie loves coming to dancing, she looks forward to it all week. She listens a lot more and really enjoys making up her own dance routines
My daughter really enjoys coming to Donahey’s dance classes, I find her dancing round the house a lot more since starting
Fantastic. Really look forward to Tuesday night
Holly really looks forward to her weekly dance class, I often find her (unsuccessfully) trying to teach Dad a few steps at home. Learning to dance in a social environment has increased her confidence at parties & school discos
Our children really look forward to coming and learning new dances; they feel very rewarded when they take their dance tests

Yes, we put on performances throughout Tameside which all our children can take part in, plus every so often we put on a spectacular FREE show for all our hundreds of pupils to join in. It’s live on a purpose built sound stage right in the centre of Ashton Under Lyne and we raise money for BBC Children In Need – the kids love it!!! Read all about it here.
All our classes are especially designed for beginners, just come along on the night – no need to pre-book!
Try and arrive about 15mins early before the class starts, so that you can get signed up and meet your teacher.
Usually about an hour
There are waiting facilities available at all venues, however we don’t allow mum’s & dad’s to wait in the ballroom where the class takes place as this can be distracting for the children. We have separate waiting lounge areas.
Every 4 months we will enter you for your Dance test and if you are successful you’ll receive awards & certificates.
We also have higher-level classes at the same time so we can choose your exact level and join you into that class. If you’ve taken medal tests before simply bring along your last report and certificate and we will place you in the correct level class.
No, we don’t enter any of our pupils into these, we believe dancing should be great fun & affordable. We prefer to specialise in making sure you have a great time at dance classes.
