Performing Arts School offering a wide variety of activities including dance, music and drama classes. Come along and get involved - you'll love it!

The Dan Tien is a new, exciting performing arts school in Watford. Combining high standards with the most caring of atmospheres, we truly believe we have something different to offer. There are activities for the whole family, and as well as running a variety of dance, music and drama classes for children and young people, we also provide a range of popular sessions for adults. Our belief is that everyone should have the opportunity to express themselves creatively, to keep fit, meet new people and just have fun!

The Dan Tien (meaning ‘energy centre’) provides first-class training in a relaxed and caring atmosphere. A family-run business not part of a chain or franchise, we’re extremely flexible and can adapt quickly to offer you a truly personal and tailor-made service. Although new on the scene (we have only been open since March 2009) we have years of teaching experience behind us, and have already proven extremely popular in the local community. In fact, some classes have filled up so quickly that we’ve rapidly needed to introduce new ones in order to keep up with demand.

The Dan Tien sets out to provide the best all-round class experience. Not only are classes fun and of a high standard, but capped class-sizes also ensure that no child is ever missed out or left behind. We strongly believe that children flourish when given individual attention, and we will always ensure that our classes are small enough to reflect this. Parents of children taking classes are looked after too, and are welcome to relax in the waiting area and enjoy a cup of tea or coffee on us — or come in and do a class themselves!
