Welcome to BDA

The British Dancing Academy has been providing fun, yet professional classes in the Western Washington area for over 45 years! For more information about our schedule and classes, please contact us at (425) 738-8586 or MissPatti@thebritishdancingacademy.com.

Member of the Royal Academy of Dancing and the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing.

Our fundamental goal is to provide exceptionally high quality training to our students, ages 3 ½ through adult, in Creative Movement, Classical Ballet, Tap, Jazz and Modern Theater. A major focus of our program is to ensure each student, from our youngest four year olds through adults, receive individual attention and a true enrichment to their overall educational experience. The dedicated teachers and staff strive to instill creativity and personal growth in each dancer while maintaining traditional technique and strong performance skills. The BDA’s examination program is internationally recognized and builds each dancer’s confidence through determination and professionalism.

Our students have the wonderful opportunity to perform in our full June stage production at Highline Performing Arts Center each year, a magical time for all involved. Our senior dancers also perform at their special Holiday Showcase in December, as well as at area rest homes, and have the opportunity to attend dancing conventions from New York and L.A., learning from many top choreographers in the country.
