Why Dance?

Creative thinking skills are developed through dance, as well as learning the value of discipline, commitment and work ethic. Self-confidence develops as young people overcome challenges to master new goals, learning to apply themselves and accomplish any task put before them.

 

 

Confidence

Dance is a great way to connect emotionally with an audience and other people. Throughout our classes, expression, smiling and reflection will be promoted. This creates a health environment in which students can express their feelings in a productive manner. 

Balance

 Balance is one of the most important things for athletes and such is the same for dancers. Having a firm centre of gravity to work off helps improve our performance, become stronger and excel in our dancing ability.

 Strength

Dancing is especially good for the muscles in your legs and glutes. It also works the hips, your lower back and your abdomen. Some forms of dancing also work the arms and the upper body. As muscle tone improves and flexibility increases, you’ll experience an increase in stamina.

Testimonials

Our daughter has danced at Kelli Dixon Academy of Dance since she was 5 and at KDAD stage school since it was established. It has become a second family and a place to be happy. At this studio everyone looks out for each other and everybody gets the opportunity to perform. My daughter has grown so much in personality and confidence and looks forward to coming to dance and pursuing her many dreams. What’s different about the Academy is Miss Kelli’s ability to work individually with children and get the best out of every child- our daughters dreams of dancing have become a reality thanks to Miss Kelli and her team. From West End stages, whole company performances and shows to EuroDisney the journey so far has been amazing and Miss Kelli continues to inspire and guide our daughter in the most positive direction. This is more than a dance school and dance teachers, it’s a safe, happy and exciting place to be part of.

Dr Lin Graham Ray

Being part of KDAD has seriously been one of the most important parts of our life. My daughter has been dancing with KDAD from aged 4 and she is now 12. It has been such a great journey so far and the dance school feels like a big family. We love the variety of performing opportunities available through the years and the warm welcome as well as professional organisation. Kelli knows each student intimately and I trust her decisions for deciding the timing of putting forward students for exams etc. Kelli’s work ethic is inspiring and her fairness to all students of all abilities is always visible. Kelli has a passion for dance and live performance. More than anything else, Kelli wants each child to love dance too, and to develop their potential, whatever that is. Kelli gives high support and expects high commitment.
