The Dance Academy Team
Come and meet our TDA team, we're a friendly bunch of people!
DE AREZ CINTRA
"I have danced since I was 2 and a half years old, and after my professional career and bringing up my family, I decided to use my teaching qualifications to open my own dance school.
It was (and still is!) very important to me that my school has a community spirit and if nothing else, this has been a huge success.
At TDA, our community spirit is in abundance and all students are afforded a happy, nurturing environment, in which they can learn, grow, and develop."
