About The School

I opened Lucy Evans Academy of Dance in May 2014 with just 8 students. Of the original 8 students, 4 of them are still dancing with me today, affectionately know as 'the originals!'

The school has now grown to 220 students and continues to grow.

In September 2020, amidst the uncertainty of the COVID pandemic I took a leap of faith and moved out of rented halls and into our own purpose built studios.

The new studio was a disused farm barn, which has been lovingly converted to a top of the range dance facility, complete with Le Mark meadow oak spring floor, barres and full length mirrors, as well as changing facilities, kitchen area and small café.

Our second studio is due to be completed for September 2021, providing much needed space for our growing dance family!
