Discovering, developing and nurturing individual skills
Adult classes available in tap and ballet
The Emmerson School of Dance was established in 1935 by Rita Emmerson and is now run by principal Kate Bowers. The schools aim is to help students acheive their full potential in a fun and caring environment, offering lessons in Cecchetti Method Ballet, Tap and Jazz.
Able students are entered for the ISTD examinations.
We produce a show every 18-24 months, enter students for competitions and hold an annual summer school.
Our Mini & Junior Competition Teams continued with their trophy success over the half term bringing home further awards.
At Kent Dance Challenge they received four awards: 1st Place for Up, 1st Place for Devil, 1st Place for Golden Slumbers and 2nd Place for Mercy. Destination Dance saw further success with a Platinum and 2nd Place for our Minis with Golden Slumber and Just Arrived, plus they were awarded with the 3rd Highest Score of the Day. And for Mercy, the Juniors received a Gold and 2nd Place!
Congratulations to all our Competition Team students.
To complement our current teaching methods we are excited to announce that in association with LA Dance Acro we will be introducing Acrobatic Arts Syllabus classes to our timetable in September. See flyers.
