Based in St Albans, (see VENUES) Brewer Dance Academy, or BDA for short, started life as the Stephanie Ledger School of Dancing, established by former examiner Stephanie Ledger in 1972.
Our school welcomes children from age 3 upwards and in term time we are open six days a week.
We believe live music is vital for developing musicality in young dancers and are proud to employ highly qualified pianists in most of our ballet classes.

All our ballet students can choose to be entered into
Royal Academy of Dance exams.
These are a fantastic way to mark progress, and there are other benefits too. For example, from Grade 6 upwards students can earn UCAS points along with their exam certificate, and success at Intermediate level can be the first step towards becoming a dance teacher.
