About Us

The Leamington and Warwickshire Academy of Dance continues to grow in the number of dance techniques taught and diversity of students enrolled. We have an established and recognised method of teaching that awakens the spirit of passion for movement, rhythm and dance. There is no question, when you are in the right class, you will build long standing lasting relationships in our friendly and approachable academy. We inspire so you can dance.

Our Ethics

  1. Despite the size of the academy, we practice a very personal approach to you or your child's tuition needs. Teaching and support staff are always on hand, or can be contacted by telephone or email to discuss issues and provide practical professional advice and solutions.
  2. The school actively seeks the progression of students through RAD, ISTD and IDTA examination grades. LWAD uses stage performances every two years to enable students to demonstrate their abilities to a wider audience. We collaborate with the Warwickshire Youth Orchestra, being an excellent opportunity for our students to appreciate working with live musicians.
  3. The school will support children/adults on income support, by agreement, either through staged fee payments or agreed reductions (ask for details).
  4. All teachers of children's classes have been CRB checked.
  5. We have a hands-on policy to enable our staff to correct the posture where appropriate.
  6. We have an inclusive policy towards children/adults with special needs and can usually accommodate your requirements.
  7. We enter and partake in national festivals and you are free to choose whether to come.
