Kew Dance Arts is an American style dance school offering professional dance instruction for children and adults. Our students receive superb dance training in a variety of dance styles without having to travel into Central London. Our ballet classes focus on proper body placement and technique while our modern dance classes are more freeform, incorporating challenging choreography and technical skills. In addition to our high quality dance training, we offer students the opportunity to perform through our School Showcases, Performance Company, Dance Festivals and Competitions. Although KDA is not an exam based school, students may elect to partake in exams through the IDTA.
