Established in 1993, the school has over 300 pupils and a 100% pass rate in RAD, IDTA and ISTD exams

Drawing pupils from Richmond, St Margarets, Twickenham, Isleworth, Whitton and beyond, the school prides itself in providing a happy and caring environment for its pupils.

Starting as early as 18 months now in our Tiny Tots Ballet, many students progress right through the RAD and ISTD Grades, graduating at the age of 18. Whilst some leave for university, others have graduated to vocational dance and musical theatre schools, including Laine Theatre Arts, the BRIT School, London Studio Centre, Italia Conti, Central School Of Ballet, Millennium Performing Arts, Centre PAC, London Contemporary Dance School and Bodywork Company. We are always very proud to see our alumni performing in London's West End, touring with professional dance and ballet companies, working in film and television or qualifying as dance teachers.

Ballet is the basis from which all other dance styles stem from here. Dance styles covered at Twickenham Academy include ballet, tap, modern, contemporary, street / hip hop, lyrical and musical theatre.

We love dance and our classes aim to be a positive learning experience for each chilld, building confidence and sociability, improving flexibility, working on strength, technique, poise and coordination. Increased self-discipline, respect, team work and creativity are all benefits of our classes. We look to improve our students and fulfill potential, whether their dance studies are a hobby, or in serious consideration of following dance as a vocational subject.

All pupils have the opportunity to participate in shows, exams and workshops. Selected pupils compete in regional festivals, often getting through to national finals. Senior girls can become teaching assistants in the younger classes. This is a high honour for our pupils and it is great experience for them and their personal development. Having teaching assistants benefits the younger pupils tremendously as well, giving them inspiration as to what they could achieve and another friendly face to interact with.
