About

At the Robyn Academy in Gravesend, you’ll find a wide choice of dance and theatre classes for children & adults taught by some of the best dance teachers in the business. Whether you are looking for a class for fun or for enhanced professional training, we have a class for you!

So What Makes The Robyn Academy Different?

No matter whether you are destined for the West End or struggle to clap in rhythm, everyone gets the chance to perform to the best of their abilities and we will find something which is right for you.

What makes the Robyn Academy different is that the Academys principal Jacqueline, is fundamentally committed to increasing the standard of dance teaching. The Academy has spent a lot of time working with local and national organisations to understand the new government regulations and ensuring we have the appropriate accreditations. This means that when you or your child dances at the Academy that you will get not only the best standard of teaching but your child will be working within the guidelines of CDET accredited dance awarding bodies.

Relaxed and Friendly environment

Let’s face it for most people, dancing has got to be about fun. If your child doesn’t enjoy it we are wasting your money. However we also aim to put your child through their paces so that they get a real sense of achievement and you get value for money. Parents like the fact that there are regular examinations that students can work towards, however classes are rarely focussed on exam practice, we like to teach the basics properly so that exam prep is straight forward and to the point.

Everyone gets their moment in the spot light

At the Robyn Academy it doesn’t matter if you are the re-incarnation of Darcy Bussell or Fred Flintstone, if you attend the classes and work hard we will give you the chance on stage, at festivals or at local fetes. Performing in front of a crowd is a fantastic experience and really helps to build childrens confidence.

Something for everyone

Whether you are an enthusiastic beginner, a budding performer or a teacher looking to re-train the Academy offers something for everyone. We offer a huge selection of dance styles for all ages including ballet, jazz, street dance, tap, commercial, Lyrical, Acrobatics, drama, singing early years & cheerleading. If one lesson doesn’t suit you then it doesn’t matter there’s plenty of options to swop.

Current and Upto date

All of our teachers are former professional dancers and now teach dance for a living. This means that not only can we teach the latest styles but they are upto date on the latest regulations, dance theory, child protection rules and safe dance practice.

Information

We are all busy people these days and it is hard to keep track of all the diary dates, things to remember and forms to fill in. The Robyn Academy has invested in an online portal to enable you to register once and keep track of everything related to your dance classes. We also make every effort to keep you informed of new events by publishing a 12 month calendar of events so that you are not caught out at the last minute. Our parent & student handbook provides a handy guide that covers everything you need to know about dancing with the Academy. If something does change we aim to keep you upto date through email, facebook and twitter.

Locations

Dancing should be fun, but sometimes it’s not fun if it takes place in cold, drafty hall or portacabin. RA Studios provides the very best facilities including fixed barres, mirrors and fully sprung dance floors. Please take time to browse our website, register online or call us to arrange your free trial class.

We look forward to dancing with you!
