SPSD Facilities

Offering the gift of Dance since 1965

Facilities

The School was founded in 1965 by Stephanie Prior and is certainly one of the longest established dance schools in Hertfordshire. In 2004, Tara decided to continue the business Stephanie had started and relinquished her day job to manage the dance school. We had one studio at the outset but the school grew in popularity and in 2011, we purchased another building, refurbished it and gained further studios, reception, office, lounge and changing facilities.
P.S. Our lounge is currently not in use owing to Government legislation guidance
Visitors and parents may watch the dance classes on the wall mounted monitors. If  you would like a Cappuccino, Cafe au Lait, Espresso, Moccaccino, Caffe Latte, Americano, Hot Chocolate or a nice cup of tea then we have it. The coffee is freshly ground.

We believe the Stephanie Prior School of Dancing offers a place where people can learn to dance, meet new people, have fun and feel comfortable. We offer a varied dance programme with options for all levels of interest, with emphasis on group classes or individual tuition enabling our clients to reach their dance skill objectives at an affordable price.
Our instructors have access to continual training with top professional coaches which provides our students with up-to-date routines, technique and access to the latest dance trends.

We are dedicated to continue bringing quality and affordable dance instruction to Royston and the surrounding areas. Our aim is to spread the word that dancing is great exercise and an exciting way for an individual to spend their leisure time.
When you dance with us you will see that  dancing is FUN!.... plus a little hard work.
There are many benefits to dancing and our belief is that we have the personalities, knowledge, skill sets and ability to attract people from many backgrounds and interests and to keep them returning and staying within our client base.
Tara and her team teach a combination of skills which allows their students to experience technique with creativity, to produce work of a very high standard.
She believes the key to the success of the school is giving her students what they want, while making it fun and enjoyable.
If you are not a dancer, you can relax in our splendid lounge and watch what is happening in the studios on the video monitors. If you need to work and stay in touch or just want to browse, then high speed wireless internet is also available.

A Passion For Dance

She is not only passionate about dance but also about offering a sense of class and style with her own classic touch, which is why her clients are greeted in the reception area by a beautifully decorated  room with a modern  feel. Everything was taken into account when the new building and studios were designed, from fully ducted air conditioned studios with mirrors and barres, to the warm and welcoming reception area.
Tara has provided unique dance experiences for her students at a variety of events and venues around the UK and Europe. She has taken them to  Disneyland Paris  several London West End Theatres and recently to the stadia of Wembley and Twickenham.
Her aim is to cater for her clients' needs with a commitment to provide them with the best and most enjoyable experience.
Tara prides herself with knowing every student who crosses the threshold of the school by their first name.
Try it sometime ! 

Whether you have been with us for years, or it's your first time, everyone who joins the SPSD family is welcomed with open arms and a huge smile :)
Tara provides first class teaching and opportunities in dance for everyone from the age of 18 months (her 'Mini Movers') upwards.
