We’ve celebrated our 27h birthday! Suffolk Academy of Dance and Performing Arts was founded in 1994. Since then, we have earned a reputation as a centre that not only offers a high level of quality tuition but also provides a positive, caring and friendly environment.

Whatever a student's reason for coming to the academy,  the emphasis is on enjoyment and equal encouragement for all.

The academy teaches the
Ballet, Tap and Modern syllabus of the British Ballet Organisation (BBO) and enters students for examinations. The BBO is recognised by the Government as an Awarding Body under the Qualifications and Curriculum Authority.

We also teach Street dance, hip hop and
musical theatre to give our students a wide range of performing arts skills, as well as holding regular workshops with guest teachers in many different subjects, including drama.

Have a look at  our gallery for a little glimpse of what we’ve done in recent years!  

Have a look at our comments page to see why our students are so happy !


We’ve kept dancing all of this year by holding our classes online but we’re now back to face-to-face classes, ncluding some new ones. We’re excited that we can now invite new students to join our very successful classes. See our ‘What people think of us’ page for comments on how we’ve coped with Covid-19.
