At Academy Dance Studios, we are committed to bringing out the best possible dancer in each of our students. Through careful training, we lay the foundations for your journey in dance and hope to instil a lifelong love of dance in all members of our studio. We encourage our students to be kind, dedicated, hard-working and humble, and to enjoy the life-long friendships that grow with dance.
Our highly qualified teaching staff caters for the casual student who wants fun, fitness and enjoyment, as well those students who would like to take part in exams and competition work.
Exams are offered in Classical Ballet and Tap, and our students consistently achieve excellent results.
We believe that stage performance is key for growth and student development, and students who show dedication, talent and promise may be invited to be a part of our eisteddfod/competition teams. Whilst winning is not our top priority, we highly value the lessons that being a part of a competition team instills in our students.
For the serious student who has the desire, motivation and physical facility to pursue a career in dance, our industry experts will work with you and offer you the training, support and guidance in achieving your goals.
