About Dancing Feet Academy ☆
Dancing Feet Academy of Dance was established in 1995 and is now situated in the centre of Braunton in it’s own purpose built studio. We also have another branch in Barnstaple. Over 300 pupils enjoy daily classes in the many disciplines that are on offer which cater for adults as well as children, starting with our special ‘Mummy ‘n’ Me’ Class for 2 year olds and now introducing ‘Silver Swans’ – Ballet Classes for the over 55’s proving that it is never too late to learn to dance.
Classes include RAD Ballet, ISTD Tap, ISTD Modern, Jazz, Contemporary, Pre-School, Musical Theatre, Acrobatic Arts & not forgetting our popular adult classes in Ballet, Tap, Jazz & Contemporary.
Classes are professionally structured and are taught in a caring and happy environment, building confidence and not forgetting the key work ‘FUN’. The Academy has attained some of the highest exam results, boasting a 100% pass rate, with many of its pupils achieving distinctions including those at Advanced level. It is also the first school in North Devon to be recognised by the C.D.M.T.
Principal, Nadine Morrish who was herself a professional dancer, believes it is important for pupils to have attainable goals whereby progress can be measured and therefore encourages pupils to take exams or assessments although these are not compulsory.
We offer many exciting performance opportunities including the chance to perform both locally and in the West End! Many of our former students are now performing professionally.
Dancing is a fun way to exercise whether your children want to dance as a hobby or with a view to pursuing a professional career and they will be part of something that they will remember for the rest of their lives.
