Dancezone Academy is the new name for Dancezone in Bournemouth. 

Our school was established in 2000 and we now celebrate our proud achievements of nearly 20 years of dancing excellence with the launch of our new name and our new website -

All are welcome!

Dancezone Academy welcomes all - from Diddy Dancers starting as young as two years old to our Senior Dancers of 80+ years. Whatever your abilities or aspirations, Dancezone Academy has something to offer you. 

All Dancezone Academy teachers have experience in Special Education Needs (SEN) and we pride ourselves in supporting all, no matter what their abilities or talents, to be the best they can or want to be. Whether you want to dance for pleasure, to get or keep fit, for your first Wedding Dance, to achieve medal exam success or to compete in local, regional or national competitions we will support you - or maybe you just want to dance for the fun of it.

As well as developing dance skills,  you will learn fitness, confidence and social skills to equip you for the future.

Dancezone Academy supports equal opportunities for all regardless of age, gender, race, religion, disability or sexual orientation and we have actively supported same sex dancing for a number of years. We actively encourage same sex couples to join our school.
