EP DANCE

WELCOME TO EP DANCE!



DANCE CLASSES IN STOCKPORT

AND WARRINGTON

EP DANCE was founded in 2016 by our Principal, Director & Founder Emily Place. Starting off with Baby Ballet and Adult Tap, we now offer classes in all aspects of theatre dance for kids and teens and classes for adults as well as courses, workshops and dance camps.


Our students are given many opportunities throughout the year, from our annual show, dance competitions and much more.


Class sizes are small so each student can reach their maximum potential.


Classes are run from our central Stockport dance studio and our brand new for October 2021 branch in Warrington.

Our Mission Statement

Our aim is to INSPIRE the next generation of dancers by instilling in them PASSION, determination and allowing them to DREAM big and be creative.


We aim to provide our students with a home from home environment at the studio, where everyone can truly be themselves.

Our Principal

Emily Place

Emily started dancing at the age of 4, training in IDTA Ballet, Tap and Modern Jazz. When she left school she embarked on a 2 year Performing Arts Diploma at Shena Simon College, studying Ballet, Tap, Jazz, Contemporary, Street, Commercial and Musical Theatre, gaining a triple Distinction. Upon leaving Shena Simon, Emily began her teacher training and started her first freelance teacher job with a dance school in Cheshire in September 2015. EP DANCE was then opened in April 2016 and the rest is history! Emily also has recently trained with Urban Strides on their Teacher Training Qualification to bring real authentic Street Dance to Stockport.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY


EP DANCE helped me get back into dancing after quitting it for a few years and as it has increased my confidence it helped me branch out into other areas of performance arts. This encouraged me to persue acting at uni where I am today.

- Erin Buckley, former student, now studying Acting and Theatre Making at London College of Music


My daughter started with EP DANCE in September 2016. Since then I've seen her go from a shy little girl to a now 9 year old who loves all aspects of dancing. Her confidence and presence whilst she is dancing is completely different to her day to day mannerisms; it's a place she can be herself and express herself through dance. EP DANCE is a family with genuine concern for the wellbeing of their students. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending EP DANCE at any given opportunity.

- Sharon, mum of Lily


Since my daughter has started lessons at EP DANCE I can see an improvement in the way that she dances as well as her confidences performing in front of people. She loves her teacher and dancing with the other girls in her class!

- Claire, mum of Sophie

CLASSES HELD IN

OUR VERY OWN STUDIO

We moved into our very own studio space in the centre of Stockport in March 2020. This gives us greater flexibility when it comes to the classes and timetable that we can offer, including dance camps, photoshoots with our sister company EP CREATIVE, additional workshops and rehearsals and private tuition which is becoming increasingly popular with our students!


Our studio is also available to hire to external hirers for fitness classes, training sessions, drama groups, community groups, photoshoots and much more. Find out more here...
