Lucie Ashley and Charlie Ashley-Burnett PRINCIPALS
Aspire. Dream. Achieve.
Ashley Dance Academy is run by Lucie Ashley and Charlie Ashley-Burnett, a sister team of ballet teachers who have danced since they were young girls. Both highly trained and experienced and incredibly passionate about dance, they have joined forces to create a dance school that provides the best of dance education to both children and adults.
ADA provide Royal Academy of Dance syllabus ballet classes in a friendly and professional environment. Students can attend a weekly class with the option to work towards RAD Examinations, which are encouraged, but not compulsory. Fun movement classes are available for Pre-Schoolers; building confidence, coordination and introducing very young children to the wonderful world of ballet. Adult Ballet, Jazz and Tap are excellent for toning, strength and stamina and both classes welcome beginners as well as more experienced dancers.
We also hold Musical Theatre Jazz classes and Tap classes for ages 5 and above. This is a wonderful contrast to our Ballet lessons and these classes place more emphasis on learning new choreography and styles week to week. These inspiring classes taught by experienced teachers and professional dancers, really aim to develop performance skills and personality.
Lucie and Charlie are delighted to offer children at ADA the experience of working with a variety of different teachers and the school provide a variety of inspiring workshops throughout the year.
All teachers and staff members are qualified, highly experienced and hold enhanced DBS checks, first aid training and safe guarding training.
ADA can also provide private tuition in ballet, tap and jazz; choreography services, dance parties and workshops. Please contact us for further information.
