The Bristol School of Dancing Story

The Bristol School of Dancing is the oldest established dance school in the city. The school was founded in 1947 and has been under the current ownership since 1970. We are situated in the heart of Clifton just a stone’s throw away from the famous Bristol landmark, the Clifton Suspension Bridge. For over 70 years we've been teaching dance to the students of Bristol using the best teachers and the most creative curriculum ideas. It is a family run business that prides itself on traditional training but is also innovative, forward thinking and completely up to date with current dance trends. It is proud to nurture creativity and aims for excellence at all times with every child treated and respected as an individual who can achieve his or her utmost potential. The well-being of pupils is paramount, and the school is proud to provide a passionate and safe teaching environment and can boast 100% success in all examinations. Its ethos is to preserve and nourish individuality and spirit that will last a lifetime.
