Dance Connect 2017

We are now settled into our new purpose built studios on Junction Road Kinross, KY138FL, where all pupils and teachers alike are enjoying the benefits of the wonderful facilities .

The new studios provide excellent dance facilities and are vocational size, with fully sprung floors and mirrors and Harlequin ballet barres in the main ballet studio. We are delighted with the dance floors and can see the difference the space and changing facilities already make to all our wonderful parents and pupils.

We are pleased to welcome WAZFIT who will also provide a timetable of fitness classes.
