What experience does your child gain from their dance classes at

Brookes Dance Academy?

  • "Enjoyment, friendship and a new skill. She learns discipline, strength and improved posture. She enjoys the opportunity to express herself and loves the friendships she is developing and her improvement in dance." - Susie Hall

  • "Great for posture and confidence, she enjoys the flexibility and stretches in Acro and the rhythm to music in Tap" - Hester Baker

  • "Annabelle is a music lover so to be able to learn specific ballet moves along with rhythm. It helps Annabelle prepare for school next year to be able follow instruction of Emma and to take turns with the other girls. Annabelle enjoys all of it but I think she really enjoys stamping in tap!" - Marie Irvine

  • "Frankie thoroughly enjoys coming each week to dance classes. She likes the fact that it helps her improve her posture, flexibility and helps keep her fit while having fun. Frankie used to lack confidence in herself. Since starting ballet classes with Emma I've seen improvements in Frankie's posture, strength and more importantly her confidence. Her particular highlight was participating in the performance, the show was fantastic." - Eleanor Stork

Welcome to a Dance School that really cares...

​At Brookes Dance Academy, Tenterden we are passionate about providing the very best, high quality dance teaching while nurturing children to have more confidence, resilience and self esteem. The discipline that dance training provides promotes an appreciation for teamwork while developing self awareness and desire for excellence. The physical benefits of course are not restricted to gaining strength and flexibility but better posture and a greater understanding of long term fitness that will carry them through for the rest of their lives.

Children's classes at Brookes Dance Academy are devised to harness and build their imagination and creativity. The Pre-School classes use songs, role play, improvisation, games and storytelling along with basic skills and dance technique. For older children's classes they learn dance techniques in greater depth while still having the opportunities to express themselves and build the confidence to perform. They can do all this through a variety of dance styles and disciplines. Our Adult classes have a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, we have lots of fun learning new steps and dances and even perform sometimes for those who wish to get involved.

Being a mother myself I fully understand the financial strains on families so we offer affordable payment policies to help spread the cost of classes. We have three 12 week terms in the year which generally fall in line with the local schools.

We are very fortunate to use dance studios that are large, bright, clean and airy which all have free parking, changing rooms and wonderful facilities. They are all based in Tenterden and close to local amenities.

As you will see from our testimonials Brookes Dance Academy has a wonderful community feel and prides itself on providing a caring, professional service to help bring out the very best in your child.
