Regular, subsidised dance classes in your school, Step into Dance at the Royal Academy of Dance


Do you want to provide your students with an extracurricular activity that supports their physical and mental wellbeing?

Maybe you want to support the rebuilding of friendships and social engagement at your school after Covid-19 closures?

Delivered by professional dancers, Step into Dance supports young people to progress, excel and realise their creative potential through regular dance classes taught in your school.

We are a fully inclusive programme which works in partnership with secondary schools, SEND schools, and PRUs with students aged 11-18 (25 for SEND), and we are delighted to let you know that registration for the 2020/21 school year is now open!

This programme is incredibly affordable thanks to the support of the Jack Petchey Foundation working in partnership with the Royal Academy of Dance.
