We offer Dance Classes and Courses in an extensive range of styles and disciplines, across all levels of experience – so whether you are setting foot on the dance floor for the first time, already have years of experience, or recently tried a new dance style at one of our Free Trials, we will have the right class or course for you.
We are not like most dance studios – our priority is to offer a more personal experience, teaching dancers to acheive their full potential.
We build on natural talent as well as supporting professional dancers, training and equipping students with the skills to be able to cross over in to musical theatre, television and other related areas.
The Academy was founded by Angelo Ruggieri, a recognised choreographer and instructor who has taught and performed across the world.
Angelo recognised gaps in dance instruction so he set about developing an innovative model that would more effectively progress and challenge students in artistic creativity and technical competency.
Angelo and his team adopt an approachable teaching style that encourages students to explore their interests and build on existing talent within a highly charged, creative and fun environment – something that sets his studio apart from other London Dance School.
The facility itself is comfortable and modern with an adjoining lounge so that students can stretch and relax before and after classes.
RUGGIERI DANCE ACADEMY was set up to support a range of dancing needs and experience: flexible and structured drop-in classes for those who have never danced or simply wish to keep fit; and part- and full-time technical courses for those seeking to embark on a professional dance career.
