Stagestruck Dance Academy began in 2005 with 2 classes, one day a week, in Ballet & Tap for children aged 4-8. We now have over 35 lessons every week covering Ballet, Tap, Modern, Acrobatics, Commercial and Musical Theatre as well as private lessons and group classes for our competition team. Children can join SDA from as young as 18 months old in our Dance With Me classes for toddlers and parents/carers. We are delighted to say, many of our students continue to dance with us until going on to further their dance careers at dedicated performing arts colleges or to university. We are proud to have had students accepted for such prestigious colleges as Bodyworks, Central School of Ballet, Midlands Academy of Dance & Drama, Northern Ballet School, Performers, Phil Winston's Theatre Works, SLP & Urdang.
Our aim is to provide our students with the best in performing arts training and we focus on developing personal excellence, discipline and strong technique along with commitment and dedication. We try to ensure our school has a warm and caring a tmosphere and is filled with laughter and encouragement and, sometimes, even a bit of silliness!
At SDA we believe in teamwork and we always look out for each other along the way. Our students make excellent progress because they understand that it's ok to make mistakes or ask questions. They gain confidence as they are not afraid to fall down and get back up again and they become leaders by learning how to help others get back up too. T he relationships that develop between dancers, teachers and parents open up endless opportunities and life-long friendships are made.
SDA really is far more than just a dancing school!
