Welcome to Dance Art Studio,


Established  since 1995, Dance Art Studio offers an extensive range of classes for children, students and adults. We also run exciting, annual holiday workshops in dance, drama and singing.


Our Pre-School Ballet classes are suitable for 3 – 5 year olds, and include a gentle introduction to Ballet through make-believe, mime and fun dances. Children from age 5 can progress through the Ballet grades to major level and can also take up other styles of dance such as Tap, Modern Theatre or Jazz. Our pupils have the option to take a recognised exam in all genres. Beginners of all ages are welcome and we also hold beginners and improvers Adult Tap classes, Adult Jazz Fit and a Boys only Tap & Jazz class called Boys Beats. All staff are passionate about sharing their love of dance with our pupils.


We teach and hold exams in the I.S.T.D syllabi which is fully accredited by the Dance Education of Training UK.




“We should consider every day lost on which we have not danced at least once.”

Friedrich Nietzsche

Back to home

Our classes are enjoyable, social, stimulating and taught to a high standard in an up-to-date and creative way. We believe that all ages can relate to our inclusive teaching style, whilst appreciating our traditional dance class methods.


Lessons are held at St. Mary’s Church Hall, Surrenden Road, Downs Infant and Junior Schools, Ditchling Road and The Brighton Academy, Cumberland Road. All venues are in the Preston Park and Fiveways areas of Brighton. We are lucky to offer large, light and spacious venues to our pupils, with portable Ballet bars and Harlequin flooring.  St. Mary's Church Hall has free easy parking and is pram accessible. Classes for our younger children have waiting areas for parents, and a kitchen with tea and coffee facilities.


All staff are First Aid trained and DBS checked and attend regular teaching courses to ensure all pupils receive excellent training, and well balanced, interesting lessons. Principal, Lynda Forster teaches full-time at Dance Art Studio. We are fully insured, please get in touch if you wish to view our safeguarding policy.
