ABOUT US

For more than 50 years we have been coaching dancers of all ages and abilities, from beginners to British Champions. We offer a variety of dance classes as well as private tuition, so there is something for everyone. With us you can learn to dance so you can attend social dances, take part in annual exams, or set your sights on competing with us around the country. You can also just come along for the pleasure of dancing... and to enjoy our great company, of course.

Our dance school was founded in 1968 by our current principal and owner, Marjorie King.  In recent years the school has gone from strength to strength with our students claiming more than 25 national titles and numerous other fantastic achievements. Since the very beginning we have struck a balance between the highest quality dance tuition and maintaining a community feel. We are a friendly group, and we want nothing more than to see you smile as you leave the studio.

So whether you think it might be fun to learn how to dance, or you see your son or daughter as the next strictly star... maybe you are being nagged by your friend or partner to try it!? They're all good reasons to get in touch, we'd love to hear from  you.
