Dance Training

Diana Freedman's School of Dance has a very professional approach to teaching and studying dance. Students are expected to attend regularly, and give full effort to their work. Not everyone wants to dance professionally, and we are happy for students to gain whatever they can from their time with us, either performance skills, good posture, confidence, and / or discipline. It works, and this shows in our results. The school has been recognised by the Dance Council International, and has been awarded a certificate in recognition of the high standards continually shown at the school.


We put on spectacular shows every two years at one of the local theatres, and parents are always amazed to see what their child/ren can achieve. We are very proud of all of our students. Diana Freedman's School of Dance has also had the privilege of performing in Christmas Concerts at The Congress Theatre, Eastbourne, at the Summer Variety Show in the Hippodrome Theatre, Eastbourne, and at the All England Festival, Peacock Theatre, London, as well as providing dancers for many other shows, including pantomimes, ballet companies, including The Royal Ballet and local theatre productions.


Candidates who pass their examinations, from Grade 3 and above, with over 95%, may be entered for BATD scholarships, and many of our students have had this privilege. Being entered for scholarships is the culmination of years of hard work both on the part of the students and their teachers. Many of our students have successfully attended the scholarships for many years, being accredited (placed 1st by a Judge), and awarded Most Promising Pupil awards. 


Our school uniform is available from our Pevensey Bay Studio, and ordered to our Bexhill Studio. They will supply you with leotards, jazz pants, tights, ballet skirts, all styles of dance shoes and any other accessories required. Outer garments such as zip-up hoodies, fleeces, various t-shirts, and NEW jogging bottoms can also be purchased from both venues.

Festival Work

Students who show above average potential in any dance or theatre subject are encouraged to have private tuition to prepare them for competition / festival work. We enter several festivals throughout the year, again with much success. Our students continually achieve 1st, 2nd, and 3rd places in Solo's, Duets, Groups and Mini-groups, and have recieved many trophies and medals in such Festivals. We also are continually successful in qualifying for the All England Regional Finals, with several of our pupils achieving further success in this harder competition, and qualifying even further to the All England Final in London's West End.
