Step Companies

At the Royal Academy of Dance

The four Step into Dance Companies rehearse weekly during term time at the Royal Academy of Dance (see calendar) The dancers receive a high level of training from our professional teachers and perform at prestigious venues such as the Royal Albert Hall, Theatre Royal Drury Lane, Piccadilly Theatre and Sadler’s Wells. Moreover, our dancers have the opportunity to achieve their Silver Arts Award during which they develop choreographic and leadership skills and build a digital portfolio (see plan).

'I have absolutely loved my five years as a company dancer. Everything this opportunity has to offer has taught me more life skills than school ever will and it was truly a special experience that I will undoubtedly carry with me.'
- Zoe (ex-dancer in the Street & Jazz Companies)
