Program Overview

The Emirates School of Dance at Bodytree is the next evolution of the studio’s decade-long commitment to offering quality dance classes for children ages 3 to 18 in Abu Dhabi. Our dance program is developed and run by a group of highly-trained professional dancers. The dance program was developed by our Dance Coordinator, Lisé Whitfield who received her dance training at the Ailey School in New York City.

The wide range of classes are held at two locations: Bodytree Studio and Saadiyat Beach Club. All of our dance classes are mixed and open to both boys and girls except where indicated.

Philosophy

Emphasis is placed on developing a solid foundation in dance technique as well as fostering a child’s artistic self-expression. The curriculum is aligned with global dance standards allowing us to offer a rigorous but not rigid series of classes that adapts to each individual child.

Thank you for entrusting your child’s dance training to Bodytree!
