The Alison School of Dance 

In 1948, Audrey Alison had a dream. After having to chop firewood to pay for lessons as a child, professional dancer Audrey wanted to give others the opportunity to dance and so, in her local church, the Alison School of Dance was formed. After more than 70 years we still pride ourselves on giving everyone opportunities, over the years thousands of pounds have been raised for charity and Audrey was awarded an MBE in 1999 for Services to the Community.

School Principal, Miss Wendy has been dancing at the Alison School of Dance since she was 2, and was taught by her mom, Auntie Audrey. Wendy is a Principal Member and Examiner with the British Theatre Dance Association, and examines students all over the world.

Alongside a team of specialised teachers, Miss Wendy and the Alison School of dance offer a diverse programme of classes, examinations and vocational paths, from first steps to accredited teaching examinations. Alongside examinations we hold a bi-annual show at The Core Theatre, a fantastic occasion for all our students. 

We can't wait to welcome

you to our dance family.


All of the ASOD teaching team have trained at the ASOD!
