The Weston School of Dance & Performing Arts, established in 1939, is recognised as one of the foremost dance and theatre arts training establishments in Essex. We aim to provide the best possible training to children, students and adults, in a safe and nurturing environment.

We want everyone to have fun and encourage all our students to achieve as well as they possibly can, within their own physical and cognitive ability. Examinations are not compulsory but are offered, through the ISTD Dance Examinations Board, to those training in Ballet, Modern Theatre and Tap dance.

Our team of experienced teachers, some of whom have performed professionally, are passionate and enthusiastic about what they do. We hope you will join us soon.
