The Academy

The fundamental goal of the British Dancing Academy is to provide high quality training. We strive to instill creativity and artistic development to all students.

The Academy staff and teachers are fully committed and dedicated to insure our dance program is more than just the normal “dance class” program. We encourage a strong commitment from students, their parents, our teachers and our entire staff to produce a curriculum and atmosphere which will enhance not only the ability to dance, but one that supports basic education – developing skills in self-discipline, poise, posture and attainment of personal goals.

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. To maintain quality in our overall dance program and to challenge our students in ballet, tap and modern, we teach the syllabi of the Royal Academy of Dancing (R.A.D.) and Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing Dancing ( I.S.T.D.) These training organizations offer carefully structured teaching methods that work with each dancer’s physical abilities.


The Academy’s facilities include our location at 18403 East Valley Road in Kent featuring three spacious, well-equipped studios, dressing/restrooms and pleasant waiting area.

The Academy also operates a large fully equipped studio in Federal Way at 1500 S. 336th St. , In Parkway Center just west of the Dance Collection shop.


Class assignments are made on an individual basis. Each student is placed in class according to previous experience, age and ability. Therefore, class schedules are not provided by mail.


Placement classes are available for new students with previous training to ensure enrollment in suitable classes.

Please Note: We do not charge a registration fee. This allows new students a chance to decide if our school is suitable before they are committed to monthly tuition.
