About KT Dance

Our Approach

I first decided to open KT Dance Academy as I saw a gap in the market for high quality dance classes in the Huddersfield area. We now run a two studio purpose built dance studio with car park and waiting area in the centre of Lindley, Huddersfield.

After dancing since the age of 3 myself, I want to pass my love for dance and theatre on to the next generation. I really enjoy teaching and working with children to help them develop and grow. My passion for dance was apparent from an early age so I would like to share my enthusiasm to inspire young dancers and performers.

Our motto is “dance for all” as we believe whatever your circumstance we will be able to provide the perfect class for you.

Our Shows

We like to showcase the talent of our children and what they can achieve through coming to our dance classes. KT Dance Academy puts on an enchanting and fun annual show, which is a great opportunity for parents to see the fantastic progress their child has made. Shows are a chance for children to try something new and develop particular performance skills and confidence.

Our next show is on Sunday 26th of November 2017 at Colne Valley High School.
