About Us

Mclaren Dance Company has been established since 1978, offering Elite training in graded dance classes for exams, open group dance classes and private lessons at the studio in Rawtenstall and teaching a high standard of R.A.D Ballet exams and N.A.T.D Tap Exams with ninety percent of pupils gaining distinction.

We teach all aspects and styles of dance for all age groups, and many of our pupils who have trained with us have gone on to dance professionally. We are sure that we will have a class to suit you.


Doing shows is a very important part of our school. We like to give the children lots of opportunities to perform on stage, with most of our shows being performed at Burnley Mechanics.

We are constantly teaching the children new numbers to keep it fun and exciting.

All the children love doing the show work, and the age ranges between two years and nineteen years.


Our wide range of classes are designed to offer something for everybody, no matter what dance style, or what age!

If you’re a beginner or an advanced dancer, there’s something for everybody.

For those looking for private lessons – we cater for you too – our private lessons can cover any dance style you choose.
