About Ripple Dance Academy
Ripple Dance Academy was founded in 2009, offering classes in tap and modern, following the ISTD syllabus.
Our examinations are accredited and count towards UCAS points for grade 6 upwards.
In 2012, we were lucky enough to take over Castle Street Dance Studios in Rickmansworth and now offer ballet classes following the ISTD syllabus, to go alongside the tap and modern classes. We also offer Jazz classes, Performance class, Stretching class and Adult classes
We offer classes from Pre-School children (Little Ripples) all the way up to Adult classes.
We endeavour to treat every child as an individual and encourage them to reach their full potential and shine as an individual whilst they are at the school. Whilst at the school, we encourage all pupils to respect one another.
