TO BRIGHTON AND HOVE DANCE ACADEMY
Principal: Victoria Arnett LRAD ARAD RAD RTS
Qualified, registered teacher with over 20 years stage and teaching experience
abroad and in the UK.
Based mainly in the spacious dance studio at Brighton Girls senior school right on
the borders of Brighton and Hove serving both parts of the city, the school offers
classes for children from three years up to adults.
The ethos of the school involves establishing a relaxed atmosphere where students
can enjoy themselves while being encouraged to work hard to achieve goals.
Importance is attached to letting pupils experience as broad a spectrum of movement
as possible within each dance discipline. Senior students therefore have free,
non-syllabus classes besides their exam work, helping them to become more versatile than purely syllabus trained dancers.
Prospective students may take a free trial class before joining.
Boys are welcome in all classes.
BHDA pupils were chosen to participate in the closing ceremony of the London 2012 Olympic Games, dancing alongside Darcey Bussell and dancers from the Royal Ballet.
In 2016 we were one of a handful of schools chosen to dance in front of the Royal Family on the Mall at The Patron's Lunch, a celebration of the Queen's 90th birthday and her patronage of the Royal Academy of Dance as well as over 600 other organisations and charities.
