Emirates School Of Dance

The Emirates School of Dance programme was developed in 2012 and is run by a group of professional dancers in Abu Dhabi at Bodytree Studio and St Regis Saadiyat Island. Emphasis on the programme is placed on helping students develop a solid foundation in dance technique as well as fostering their sense of 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 or community we work with.


We offer skilled instruction in a full range of dance styles including Ballet, Pointe, Jazz, Hip Hop, Tap, Contemporary, Dance Prep (for ages 3-6), and multiple types of teen fitness classes (barre, Zumba, Pilates, yoga roll out, etc.). Our programme allows us to offer recreational classes focused on developing body awareness & healthy habits as well as pre-professional training for students wishing to explore the option of dance as a career path.


ESD is proud to offer diverse dance curricula in schools throughout Abu Dhabi. Our trained teachers can help serve your students with dance classes to best fit the needs of your population and facilities. See how your students will grow with artistic opportunities to utilize creativity, movement, and social-emotional learning in fun, skill-level-appropriate programs.
