Teddington Dance Studio students

Teddington Dance Studio balletTeddington Dance Studio is a vibrant dance school based in Teddington. It opened in 2012 and has proved so popular it now has 150 students. It is owned and run by Natalie, who danced professionally in a variety of roles and settings until she started up the school. Being fresh out of the dance industry, she has lots of new and exciting ideas, and her energy and enthusiasm really shine through as an inspiration to the students.

Teddington Dance Studio barreTeddington Dance Studio gets the balance right by being a fun and friendly school where everyone is welcome, but one where core subjects and exams can also be taken seriously. Students can attend classes just for fun or they can work towards grade examinations, which are taken annually with excellent results. Students also have a whole host of performance opportunities throughout the year, at many local events and competitions, and at TDS’s annual performance evening.

Adult classes in ballet, tap and jazz are also available. There is a full timetable on Teddington Dance Studio’s website. Class information (a free taster class is available for all classes):
