Program Overview

Bodytree Studio is excited to launch its new dance program with over fifty new classes and nine new teachers joining our current roster of highly-skilled dance faculty. 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.

The new dance program has been developed and will be run by our new Dance Coordinator, Lisé Whitfield who received her dance training at the Ailey School in New York City. All classes will be taught by a selection of highly-trained professional international faculty. The expanded range of classes and levels will be 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.


Emphasis is placed on developing a solid foundation in dance technique as well as fostering a child’s artistic self-expression. Our 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!
