About The Kings Academy of Performing Arts

Helping Students Reach Their Full Potential

Many talented dancers are held back by inconsistent, low-quality training. Our Core Four Programme is specifically developed to offer a comprehensive dance education, which will elevate our student’s technique and performance capabilities ensuring the best possible start through their childhood and beyond. We know not every little one that walks through our door will end up as a professional dancer, but we aim to inspire every single person to reach their full potential.

Traditional Dance School

We are a Traditional Dance School, which means we value classical dance training, strong technique across genres and high levels of performance quality. The performing arts world is ever-evolving, but traditional technique will never go out of fashion. It’s important for us to infuse tried and tested classical training with innovative new teaching methods to bring you high quality, safe yet engaging and enjoyable dance classes no matter your age or ability. We aim to inspire self-belief in our students and empower them to achieve their dreams. We are a close-knit, family school, where each and every student, parent, teacher and friend deserves to feel uplifted, appreciated, included and empowered after every class.

Our Core Values

The Kinds Academy of Performing Arts lives by the following core values:

Happiness & Education

Dancing makes you feel good, it’s as simple as that, and we believe passionately that you should do more of what makes you feel good… and learn something in the process. Learn the art of performing alongside the anatomy, history and rhythm of the genre, as well as those important social skills, like turn taking and team work.


Appreciation of the art form as a whole, the teacher appreciating their students and the students appreciating their teachers! Seeking out a more knowledgeable ‘other’ to help them grow, or nurturing the younger children that come after them. To be all-inclusive, so all students have a sense of belonging, can make friends for life, feel supported and connected like one big dance family.

Resilience & Trust

Teaching students to dance is a huge part of what we do, but to release their inner confidence and enable them to become bold resilient people is equally important. To trust each other, the process, the training and above all to trust themselves.
