Aim, Aspire and Achieve

WTA dance academy fosters a welcoming environment which stimulates and encourages students in the learning process. Each student is unique; they are valued and respected and given the opportunity to progress in their chosen art form, developing self worth and a positive self image whatever their ability.


Although the main aim of WTA is to introduce children to the joys and benefits of the performing arts we also provide serious technical and performance training for students who are considering a career in the theatre or teaching.

So whether you require a single class in any given dance genre or more in depth training we have something to offer everyone.

All dance classes are taught with a sense of fun and enjoyment whilst at the same time encouraging every pupil to reach their full potential whatever their ability.

Friendly and welcoming dance academy

The Academy is based in Ilkley and Ben Rhydding in three different centres, which all have sprung floors, barres and changing areas.

We offer a warm welcome to all pupils and their families; parents are encouraged to have a drink and a chat in our parents waiting area whilst the classes are in progress.

The School has it’s own dance wear shop that stocks all uniform requirements as well as a wide range of non-uniform dance wear and equipment.

This Christmas WTA celebrates its 10th anniversary with a spectacular version of the Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe, transporting you into the magical world of Narnia.
