Principal Teacher: Lydia Davies

I have professional qualifications with the "International Dance Teachers' Association", the "British Association of Teachers' of Dancing" and a "London College of Music" Diploma in Musical Theatre. I am also fully insured and hold an enhanced DBS check.

I have been dancing since I was three years old and my love of performing continued into my teenage years when I decided to train to become a qualified teacher. 
I trained in Shrewsbury and in Birmingham covering all styles of dance and I was delighted to achieve 94% in my teaching examination.


Elegance Dance School is a large dance school offering classes in four venues across Shropshire & Powys (Ellesmere, Shrewsbury, Bayston Hill and Arddleen). I bring my expertise and experience into local communities providing a wide variety of dance styles.

I work closely with the IDTA and BATD syllabi to bring all my students to an accredited standard. Examinations are offered at all grades and in all dance styles giving the pupils a great sense of achievement. Most students take examinations annually and the school has an outstanding pass rate of 100%, with all students passing with Merit (75-84%) or Distinction (85%+).

Students from all venues also have the opportunity to perform in stage productions. In July 2015, all pupils of Elegance Dance School celebrated the schools 5th birthday by performing in the Main Auditorium at Theatre Severn, Shrewsbury. Over 150 pupils aged 3-16 years showcased their talents in Tap, Ballet, Modern Jazz & Freestyle making it an amazing day and throroughly enjoyable for all, both pupils and audience members. Here are just a few of the lovely comments I received after the show:
 "This is just a brief note to congratulate you and the dancers for such a superb show on Sunday. Our two grand daughters have gained so much from being in the weekly sessions and now performing on stage in a theatre. To give young children the opportunity to experience and learn in such settings is fantastic and we loved every minute of it." - The Fyffe Family
"What a wonderful show. Each and every dancer did everyone proud. I would just like to say what a difference Elegance Dance school has done for my daughters confidence. A year ago she wouldn't leave my side. Today I watched her walk on that stage with such confidence it brought a tear to my eye" - The Jones Family
"The show was fantastic and better than I could ever have imagined! Everything was so polished and perfect. Thanks for giving my girls such a wonderful experience." - The Reeves Family
"Just amazing!! Thank you so much for working so hard to enable our children to fulfill their dreams and amaze themselves on stage!!! You've made us and our families so proud of our girls today, well done & thankyou to everyone who has been involved" - The Garratt Family
"Thank you Miss Lydia!! My daughter loved performing, all the dancers were brilliant!! Here's to the next 5 years!" - The Davies Family
