Sing, Dance, Act

Since 1998 literally thousands of children in East Kent have learnt to sing, dance and act in DAPA classes. We now have the second generation DAPA kids – where the parents attended when they were small. I’m pleased to say that the school is stronger than ever, with more than three hundred pupils attending classes in Deal and Canterbury. The standard of teaching and pupil achievement has never been higher, and the constant stream of new Jolly Tots is a testament to the fun we have, quality of the training and the hard work and dedication of the teachers.

DAPA pupils have performed at Celebrity Weddings, Royal Galas and with Britain’s Got Talent winners! We have hosted professional workshops with Flawless and Louie Spence and regularly have West End Workshops with cast members from the shows.

Each year our ballet students have the wonderful opportunity to perform alongside International Dancers in the annual St Margaret’s ballet. DAPA produce Annual Shows, Pantomimes and Holiday Workshops as well as giving students the opportunity to take Exams and Awards.
