Welcome to Showcase Dance Academy
Dance School in Colchester, Essex
Established over 20 years ago, Showcase Dance Academy specialise in ballet, tap, modern and jazz dance. We are proud of our extremely high standards of teaching and development, and in return we are rewarded through pupils’ examination results and shows. Furthermore, we boast success stories for many students who have auditioned and won places to perform at prestigious theatres with the National Youth Ballet, English Youth Ballet and various other theatre groups. More recently we have also had the opportunity to perform at Her Majesty’s Theatre, London and The Ipswich Regent. However, the highlight of 2016, was taking our students to perform at The Videopolis Theatre at Disneyland Paris.
Although many students attend for fun, exercise and the social aspect of dance, Showcase Dance Academy are also very proud of our professionalism in training and encouragement of many students who have achieved places on the Royal Ballet Associate Scheme and have gone onto full time performing arts and dance colleges; such as Bird College, Performers College, Central School of Ballet & London Studios. Some have also qualified to pursue a career in dance teaching.
In addition, we also feel that our students gain more than just dance skills at Showcase Dance Academy. From the various opportunities we offer, many other benefits can attribute to their everyday life including:
- Social interaction
- Posture and deportment
- Organisational skills
- Developing a sense of commitment
- Development of creative and artistic quality
Dance class fees:
