Ripon Dance Academy opened its doors in September 2013, taking over the reins from Grace Player who taught ballet in Ripon for several years.  Since then the school has gone from strength to strength and now offers classes in classical ballet, modern jazz, tap and commerical jazz.  We have over 150 pupils taking classes across all genres.  We hold regular IDTA exam sessions and our pupils compete in dance festials around Yorkshire.


At RDA, we aim to provide high quality dance training for all; for those children wishing to take exams and perhaps consider performing arts as a career path or a challenging environment for those who wish to take classes just for fun.


We strive to create a friendly atmosphere and we welcome everyone with a smile and encouragement.


We hope to welcome you to RDA soon!
