Celebrating 10 year partnership with Sadler’s Wells

London dance classes at Sadler's Wells

We are incredibly proud to celebrate our 10 years partnership with Sadler’s Wells.

Since the start of our partnership in 2008, we have provided dance classes to over 18,000 students at the wonderful rehearsal studios at Sadler's Wells.

To celebrate our decade together, and our shared passion for dance, we will be jointly hosting a Day of Dance - a full day dedicated to dance participation - with classes across a broad range of dance styles. 

Find out more about the day: Join us on Saturday 27th October and book your free classes here.
