In addition to classes, we also perform in festivals, pantos, and shows throughout the year. At Staples Dance Academy we’re proud members of the Royal Academy of Dancing, Imperial Society Of Teachers of Dancing.

Star On The West End

We’ve successfully helped a range of students reach their goals of performing on the West End. In fact, both of our principal’s sons are currently involved in musicals and shows on the West End. The aim of the school is to train our pupils and get them to the highest level that will enable them to go on to performing arts and dance colleges.
