We’re celebrating our 25th birthday! Suffolk Academy of Dance and Performing Arts was founded in 1994. Since then, we have earned a reputation as a centre that not only offers a high level of quality tuition but also provides a positive, caring and friendly environment.

Whatever a student's reason for coming to the academy,  the emphasis is on enjoyment and equal encouragement for all.

The academy teaches the
Ballet, Tap and Modern syllabus of the British Ballet Organisation (BBO) and enters students for examinations. The BBO is recognised by the Government as an Awarding Body under the Qualifications and Curriculum Authority.

We also teach Street dance, hip hop and
musical theatre to give our students a wide range of performing arts skills, as well as holding regular workshops with guest teachers in many different subjects, including drama.


Have a look at  our gallery for a little glimpse of what we’ve done in recent years! What will 2019 bring?
We can't wait to welcome lots of new students this year to join us for a very special 25th anniversary year!! Every one of our students performed at the Ipswich Regent in June to help us celebrate! Phone us on: 07889 982957 or use our contact form to send us a message so we can sort out a FREE trial lesson for you! 

Have a look at our comments page to see why our students are so happy !


We  put on a Big Show to celebrate our 25th anniversary on Saturday 15th June at the Ipswich Regent Theatre. Over 175 pupils danced in that, and you can see some photos from the show on our 25th Anniversary Show page.   You can see photos of previous Big Shows on our gallery page.
