Thorrington Dance Academy was established in 2014 with the aim to provide a high standard of dance training in a fun, friendly and encouraging environment.
We believe every child counts and positively encourage each child to reach their own potential whilst developing their confidence.
Children have the chance to participate in ISTD examinations and also have the opportunity to particitate in performances.
