General Information

SADPA has over 20 years of experience teaching children of all ages. Our classes are fun, encouraging and good value for money. Our youngest dancers start at 2 and a half years old in our "Little Stars" class and they can carry on all the way through to 18 years of age to become our Seniors. Regular performances, exams and workshops with guest teachers means that there is always something to work towards and look forward to. As well as learning to dance, our classes help to build confidence, social skills, team work, discipline and friendships.

Most of our classes are held at in the Circle Lounge of The Ipswich Regent Theatre.

The theatre is in the centre of Ipswich and has good public transport links and good parking facilities.

welcome to SADPA

Suffolk Academy of Dance and Performing Arts was founded in 1994. Since then, we have earned a reputation as a centre that not only offers a high level of quality tuition but also provides a positive, caring and friendly environment.

Whatever a student's reason for coming to the academy, the emphasis is on enjoyment and equal encouragement for all.

The academy teaches the Ballet, Tap and Modern syllabus of the British Ballet Organisation (BBO) and enters students for examinations. The BBO is recognised by the Government as an Awarding Body under the Qualifications and Curriculum Authority.

We also teach Street dance and musical theatre to give our students a wide range of performing arts skills, as well as holding regular workshops with guest teachers in many different subjects, including drama.


FREE trial lessons are always available for our classes but if you book a free trial lesson in January, you will then get the first class FREE once you have registered! Click here to send a message for more information about our classes and to book your FREE trial.
