Bede's Legat Dance Academy

Bede’s Legat Dance Academy is designed for talented and passionate dancers who are aspiring and committed to pursuing a career in dance. Pupils are taught by world-class industry professionals with vast experience in their field as performers and teachers.

Our priority is to support and align the dual demands of dance training alongside a high quality academic programme, preparing the next generation of dancers, choreographers, producers, teachers and creative leaders. 

They can audition to be part of a unique, versatile and specialist dance programme.

We offer a professional, intensive dance training in the core subjects of Ballet, Contemporary and Jazz, with supplementary training in Musical Theatre, Tap, Creative and Strength and Conditioning.

Pupils are provided with regular opportunities to perform, whether that be at the annual Legat Showcase or as part of Bede’s hugely popular Cabaret show. 

As well as our regular team of professional teachers, we value highly the contribution of a range of visiting experts and professionals from the West End as well as more classical dance groups, who visit Bede’s to hold workshops as well as invite our pupils to participate in masterclasses in London and beyond. 

Pupils can also take RAD, ISTD vocational examinations including BTEC Level 2 and 3 Performing Arts.

Our students have gone on to study at prestigious dance colleges and universities, including: Rambert, Elmhurst, Central School of Ballet, Ballet West, Ballet Theatre UK, Doreen Bird, Laine Theatre Arts, Tring Park, Laban, The Place, The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland and Boston Conservatoire.
