'A caring environment where pupils achieve their highest potential.'

Edinburgh Dance Academy

offers classes and exams in Ballet, jazz, tap, contemporary, acro and commercial. The school is one of the leading dance schools in Scotland. The exam results are unrivalled and EDA was the first dance school in Edinburgh to have its own Performance Group.

Lessons are available from three years old to adult classes, and are taught in venues throughout Edinburgh and East Lothian.

Pupils at the Academy have the opportunity to take ballet, modern and tap examinations and, since it’s opening, the Academy has prided itself on the high standard of results.
There is also a non-exam route for children who prefer less structured dance. Singing and drama are also taught in the Performance Group classes. Former pupils have gone on to dance with the Royal Ballet, English National Ballet, Portuguese National Ballet and various other classical and modern companies throughout the world. EDA has its own “Chance to Dance Scholarship Fund which helps young dancer in many ways.
