Walsall Academy of Dance has been established since 1964 and has been recognised for the level of excellence in training students on numerous occasions. Classes are designed to ensure that every child has the attention they deserve and therefore achieve their potential. Students are expected to behave in a well mannered way and must show respect to their peers and teachers alike. We insist on all students taking pride in their appearance by ensuring they wear the correct uniform, have their hair neatly arranged and are ready on time to participate in lessons. We believe that a good dance education provides much more than the ability to perform movement, the students we train are dedicated, have an excellent work ethic and commitment and therefore become role models and ambassadors for the youth of today. We take pride in our students high expectations, effort and their excellent exam results. Parents can access all our policies in regards to child protection and more in reception.
