We are excited to make the move into our new premises, fully equipped dance studios early in the New Year of 2024! From the early years of Brocklesby Academy of Dance, we had our first studios in town centre back in 2019, then re-locating to temporary premises after the pandemic, we are excited for our new forever home!  our school maintains a friendly, family ethos and having our own premises gives students a real sense of ownership and community.  Located on Kimbolton Road, the new studio's are easily accessible from all areas of town.  

ELEV8 STUDIOS DANCE ACADEMY teachers are registered with the Royal Academy of Dance, Imperial Society of Teachers of Dance and International Dance Teachers Association, enabling them to offer examinations in RAD Ballet & ISTD Modern, Tap & Greek, LAMDA Speech & Drama.  Angela & Sarah were amongst the first teachers in the UK to train and become certified teachers with Acrobatic Arts and Progressing Ballet Technique.  Additional classes include Commercial Dance, Musical Theatre, Contemporary and Lyrical Dance.


We have regular performance opportunities in regional and national venues.  Our bi-anual showcase at The Venue, MK gives all students the opportunity and experience of performing in a fully operational working theatre and our next show will be in May 2024!  


ELEV8 students have the option to take exams or maybe join our comp team if they are looking to take dance as a vocation. The mix of students we have who love dance as a hobby or wish to pursue it more seriously is the perfect blend.  The ECP team compete regularly at All England Dance and have recently taken home gold & silver medals from the finals at the Hackney Empire in London.  Our students were selected to join Team England in the 2017,19,20,21,22 & 23 International Dance World Cup!  Despite a difficult year, in 2021 a whopping 40 students qualified for Team England and came home as World Champions, winning an amazing 14 Medals for England!

Don't take our word for it, hear it from our dance family...

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the performances which were outstanding in the Spellbound Show at The Venue, MK! The grace, poise and professionalism of all the dancers was extraordinary - one could be forgiven for thinking you were watching a West End performance! Their confidence was sky high - excellent for their personal development.

The organisation of the production was truly oustanding. Well done to Angela & Sarah, the other teachers and of course the dancers, all of whom were superb. Please give them our congratulations. It must have taken a great deal of work.
