Company

Our Performance Company has been formed to give promising and dedicated dancers the opportunity to perform on professional stages at public events. All selected dancers attend this class every Wednesday, in addition to their other regular academy classes,  to further develop their technique. Previous performance have taken place at Alexandra Palace, North London’s Got Talent, Barnet Dance Festivals and in Paris on the Disneyland Stage.

We are planning to take part in more exciting performances, from local community Christmas Fetes, Mardi Gras West End Stage performances as well as making a return at our biggest performance event yet… Disneyland Paris!

If you are interested in your child joining our performance company, please speak to our Dance Academy Manager.

Shows

null
Throughout the year we give dancers the opportunity to perform, showcasing their talent and skills to family and friends in our academy recitals. This also allows parents to see their progression and the hard work that dancers put in to prepare for examinations.

Every other year, we hold our Academy Showcase, where all our dancers get the opportunity to perform on stage in a professional theatre. This is an exciting time for the dancers and teachers, from preparing routines to getting costumes ready and seeing everyone come together on stage

Uniform

null
Dance uniform is essential for all students to allow freedom of movement and expression. It creates a sense of belonging and identity, encouraging discipline. It also facilitates high quality teaching and a fun environment which is enjoyable for all.

After the initial free trial, it is compulsory for students to wear our regulation uniform to each class. This uniform will also be used for official examinations and in our dance shows. We also ask that dancers take off all jewellery and have their hair neat and tidy. To purchase uniform, please speak to our staff at Academy or via our online shop.
