About The School

We have been established in the Reading area for over 30 years. During this time we have had many pupils who have gone on to make a career in dancing. Some have danced professionally whilst others have become choreographers and teachers. We also have many pupils who have enjoyed dance as a lovely hobby.

Our ethos is to develop each child to his or her own full potential. To teach the discipline and complexities of dance whilst maintaining the sheer delight of dance. We also aim to develop a greater understanding of dance by exploring and linking music and movement. We believe that our experienced staff teach in a caring and happy atmosphere.
