About Lisa Jane School of Dance

Our dance school caters for students from 3-18 years old in ballet, modern dance, tap, contemporary and street dance at multiple centres in Basingstoke and the surrounding area.
Multiple school centres
Our four main dance school centres are at:
- Old Basing Village Hall, The Street, Old Basing, Basingstoke, Hampshire, RG24 7DA

Principal Lisa McCarthy is fully trained and qualified to teach Royal Academy of Dance (RAD) ballet and Imperial Society of Teachers of Dance (ISTD) modern and tap. There are examination sessions throughout the year and the school has an enviable pass rate.
Every two years, the Lisa Jane School of Dance takes over The Anvil Theatre in Basingstoke for its school show where all the pupils show off their dancing – and sometimes singing to rave reviews. In the years where there is no show, the school holds a choreography competition where the students choose their own music and make up their own dances with prizes awarded in the junior and senior sections.
