Having trained at the RAD and taught at the school for three years, Katherine Richardson BA (Hons) LRAD, ARAD set up The Village School of Dance in 2008 in the heart of Wimbledon Village.
The Village School of Dance in Wimbledon has grown to encompass the needs of all the dancers who attend, running Christmas productions and summer schools, while offering a full range of Ballet, Modern and Tap an... d Acro dance classes for children and adults, as well as Darcey Bussell's brilliant high-intensity dance fitness class , DDMIX (Diverse Dance Mix).
Classes are run throughout the week at The Village School of Dance, offering something for everyone. Ballet classes follow the Royal Academy of Dance syllabus, our modern and tap classes follow the Imperial Society of teacher of Dance and our Acro Dance follow the Acrobatics Arts work. Students are encouraged to take exams in all levels, however this is not compulsory, the main aim is that they enjoy coming and love to dance!
Our fab dance fitness classes add a unique dimension to The Village School of Dance. Katherine has been very fortunate to work closely with Darcey Bussell. She has been a fantastic support as she often attends some of the classes as well, even covering for Katherine, a very rare treat for our DDMIXers!
DDMIX has been a fantastic new addition to what the school can offer and Katherine is very excited to share it with everyone. All you need is some fitness clothes to get you moving and a pair of trainers and you're set to go!
We pride ourselves on the fun and relaxed atmosphere we have at the school and we welcome everyone to our family-friendly dancing community! DBS Insured By: Arthur J. Gallagher & Co.
