About Us

Angels Dance School was set up in January 2006 with a handful of pupils and a dream to spread the love of dance across Essex. Having taught for other schools I wanted the freedom to teach my own style of dance with passion and enthusiasm. I put every bit of energy I have into every lesson and expect my pupils to do the same which is why we have been so successful.

From our humble beginnings our dance school has grown into a very large family of amazing talented pupils and teachers. We pride ourselves on our commitment to our lessons and work hard to achieve our goals. However, the upmost importance to me is that my pupils have fun and enjoy what they do.

I have a passion for teaching young people and encourage them to be themselves which allows their personality to shine through when they perform. I believe in getting to know our pupils and taking an interest in each and every one of them, this in turn makes them feel more comfortable with expressing themselves through dance and performance.

Angels Dance Class

Our school teaches ISTD syllabus work which is one of the worlds leading dance bodies. Through this syllabus we are fortunate to offer examinations and regional competitions. Since day one our school has been extremely successful with the majority of our pupils achieving honours in their exams. Our competition success has been even greater with many of our pupils winning national competitions.

Our annual events include our 'Angels Dance Awards' our own 'Inter House Competition' and our 'Summer Show' which is always a fantastic opportunity for our pupils to perform on stage. Each year we get stronger and stronger due to the hard work and commitment of not only our pupils but their parents too.

Many of our pupils also perform in local pantomimes, amateur and professional stage productions as well as regularly at school fetes and carnivals. A few of our pupils have successfully landed roles such as 'Rapunzel' at the Harlow Playhouse and 'Annie' at the Towngate Theatre Basildon.

At Angels we strive to be the best teachers we can by constantly updating ourselves with the latest trends by attending workshops and professional classes and incorporating that into our choreography. This in turns keeps our dancers on their toes and always physically as well as mentally stimulated.

We invite you to come and join in the fun and be part of our fab, friendly and fun team!
