WELCOME TO TEDDINGTON DANCE STUDIO
Teddington Dance Studio opened in September 2012.
T.D.S is a vibrant AWARD WINNING Performing Arts school based in Teddington South West London that teaches all students to enjoy the arts.
Students from 2.5 years all the way up to adults are welcome and encouraged to learn and develop their dance and performance technique in a fun and friendly environment whether it be to eventually pursue a career in the industry or just for fun. TDS students have gone on to Performing Arts & vocational colleges such as Arts Ed, Tiffany Theatre College & RADA.
Ballet, Tap, Jazz and Modern are taught from both the I.D.T.A and I.S.T.D syllabuses which students can work towards taking grade examinations.
Examinations are held 2-3 times a year and are extremely rewarding and enjoyable but are taken seriously. Students have always achieved excellent results with the school holding a 100% Pass rate in all exams taken. Our most recent Ballet Exam session held in November 2019 100% of Ballet exam students received a Distinction with a mark of 85 or more.
Due to the Coronavirus Pandemic exams in the summer term of 2020 were delayed, however TDS were not to be defeated and in November 2020 93 ISTD Tap and Modern remote exams were taken. Results were outstanding with 75 of these exams resulting in Distinctions and over 15 children achieving a mark of 90 and above.
T.D.S offers a wide range of classes including Melody Movement, Musical Theatre, Acrobatics, Commercial Jazz and Adult Tap for all ages and abilities.
TDS also offer weekly Drama classes where students have the option of working towards LAMDA examinations.
There are also many other performance opportunities including local community events, Dance Festivals, ISTD Janet Cram Awards, IDTA Classical Performance Awards, the TDS Awards Evening and our TDS Showcase which happens every 2 years where family and friends are invited to watch.
