Charlotte Stripling Founder and Principle - 

 “I wanted to run a dance academy that didn’t put pressure on young people to compete and take exams. While it is important to have a range of academic and practical skills not all of them need to be measured or judged. My pupils are not examined on their ability and are encouraged to relax, enjoy themselves and be confident in themselves to learn a new skill.”

I am  bubbly person who loves a laugh and has a massive passion for dance and drama. Teaching children and adults the skills in dance that i have learnt through my training and career is the best job in the world. I am a strong believer in keeping staff and myself up to date with the ever changing trends in dance so we are current and on point with what knowledge we pass on to our students. Simply dance is a place where staff, and customers feel apart of a family.
