Welcome to Milton Academy of Dance
Milton Academy of Dance has been established for more than 60 years in New Milton and provides quality training for all ages and abilities. We provide fun, friendly and motivational classes in Ballet, Tap, Modern and Adult Tap (Using ISTD and RAD Syllabus)
We teach Royal Academy of Dance Ballet from the age of two and provide professional and quality teaching to Grade 8, including Vocational classes. Imperial Society Teachers of Dance Tap and Modern classes start with our Beginners Tap and Primary Modern through to and including Vocational. Both Imperial Society and Royal Academy of Dance are awarding bodies recognised by the Qualifications and Curriculum Authority (QCA) in England
We have (non compulsory) examinations held 2/3 times a year and pride ourselves on continued high pass rates.
Students are given the opportunity to perform in shows, exams, summer school and many other events. Our bi-annual show is a chance to perform on a stage and allows all of our students to display the skills learned in the studio.
We are based in our own building, with 2 studios fully equipped with barres, mirrors and a stereo sound system. This is accompanied by a reception/changing room. We offer a safe and welcoming environment for all to study. We are committed to encouraging a sense of pride and self confidence to all who attend whether pursuing a career or your passion for dance.
Many of our students have achieved Royal Ballet Junior, Mid Associates and have performed with the English Youth Ballet and the New Forest County Show. In addition, a number of students are continuing to professional theatre schools.
In addition our teachers also visit local private schools. We are committed to providing the highest level of teaching. All teachers are CRB checked, hold Dance teaching qualifications and attend regular courses towards their continued professional development.
