Passion2Dance Academy opened over 8 years ago and started inspiring dancers to reach their potential. With a professional and passionate team, we can offer dance and performing arts education in a safe manner in our purpose-built dance studios or at a school setting. Passion2Dance Academy currently have over 400+ students in classes throughout the week and growing.
We care about getting children healthier, including the social side of dance and improving overall mental health, as well as fitness. An inviting environment where children feel comfortable to be who they are and grow both as a dancer and a person. We are awarded recognised school status by the Council for Dance, Drama & Musical Theatre as well as being the only dance school in Lincoln to be OFSTED registered. As a dance academy, this is an achievement we are certainly very proud of and in turn this also provides a wonderful benefit for you as we accept Childcare Vouchers from a host of providers, which can be used to pay for dance fees and holiday workshops.
Passion2Dance believe in the importance of dance within the curriculum and are proud to be able to offer professional and diverse school PPA Cover, Workshops, CPD, Breakfast & Lunchtime clubs and holiday clubs.
The academy holds their annual shows at The New Theatre Royal Theatre in Lincoln, where all pupils are given the opportunity to perform on stage – a chance to showcase all their hard work and dedication. Students are also encouraged to enter for their examinations in all disciplines with the IDTA and ABD to enable them to be rewarded for their progress. We are proud to hold a 100% pass rate in exams and students can work up to professional teaching exams.
The academy strives to offer amazing performance opportunities to pupils and works closely with organisers to perform at fetes, events and The Lincolnshire Show which attracts tens of thousands of visitors a year. The academy also successfully auditioned a team of dancers to perform on stage at DisneyLand Paris. This was an amazing opportunity for all involved and something we would love to do again!!!
You can rest assured all our facilities and faculty conform to the highest expectations and we are focused on achieving exceptional standards of dance.

Our ever-growing dance school has got something for everyone, with a wide range of levels for all abilities. With classes in Ballet, Tap, Jazz, Commercial, Street, Lyrical, Acro, Cheerleading, Progressing Ballet Technique and Pointe work. We also have 2 ‘Performance Teams’, who take part in external performances and competitions.
We are proud to be recognised with the Council for Dance, Drama and Musical Theatre (CDMT) and we are fully accredited with the International Dance Teachers Association (IDTA) and Associated Board of Dance (ABD), Acrotrix and London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA). The Academy is Ofsted approved.
I have 3 children, all of differing age and abilities who dance and are part of the Passion2Dance extended family. Offering a great variety of styles with equally talented dance teachers in a family friendly bespoke premise adds to the whole dance experience. Each year the students work towards a performance where they get to perform on stage in beautiful costumes in front of their family and friends. The ‘buzz’ and confidence the children get from this is amazing and is credit to the hard work and determination of the team at Passion2Dance. The atmosphere outside of the actual lessons is also just as impressive as with it being family friendly, it allows for parents/carers to meet and chat whilst classes are taking place and this interaction has proved extremely valuable for me as a parent.
Finally, the opportunities at this studio are never ending. In October 2019 a group of students from passion2dance were lucky enough to be invited to dance at Disneyland Paris as part of the Performing Arts Programme hosted by Disneyland. This opportunity, along with others support the dancers to make friends, be the best they can be, make their experience’s personal to them and most importantly have fun.
My daughter has been attending Passion2Dance since she was 2, she is now 10. Starting with Petite Ballet, she has joined Acro, Tap, Cheer, Lyrical, Street and Jazz as not only did she find these classes fun, her confidence and skills have increased thanks to the teachers who are friendly and professional. The studios are modern, spacious and not overcrowded with a friendly, welcoming atmosphere. Passion2Dance is inclusive and encourages boys and girls of all levels of abilities and communication is 100%.
The teachers instil the discipline needed for dance, exam preparation is exemplary, but all done in an enjoyable way. The yearly shows are exciting (and sequin filled!) in a Theatre setting and there is also an opportunity if desired, to compete in local and national competitions- but no pressure, only when the pupil feels ready. I highly recommend this dance school and would not wish for my child to attend anywhere else.
Passion2Dance has become an important part in my daughters life and both teachers and other parent have become a much important part in our dance family. I have seen my daughter Lacey flourish in the past 3 years that she has be there and this is all thanks to the commitment, encouragement and love the teachers show each and every dancer. even through the tough times of lockdown they have continued to encourage each dancer to continue following there dreams with on line classes and chats.
Megan joined Passion2Dance as a very shy, timid ballerina (aged 5) – she wanted to become a dancer just like her older cousin! The teachers were so patient with the children and encouraged them every step of the way. Megan soon grew in confidence and decided to try other dance techniques taking on Tap, Commercial Street, Lyrical to name a few, she was soon a regular at the school and had made lots of new friends. Her confidence has continued to grow with P2D support and she has been successful in many dance exams.
Megan then decided that she wanted to join the Performance Team which has opened up a lot more opportunities. Many a proud moment has taken place watching her perform at local shows (Lincolnshire Show) and more recently the amazing performance at Disneyland Paris.
It is clear that the dance teachers don’t just teach, they genuinely care for the children and want them to do well. This is always apparent when they take to the stage at the annual dance show. You can see the children are really enjoying themselves and the teachers are at the same time proud.
Passion2Dance has become an extension of our family, not only has Megan made friends along the way but we as parents have too. We are looking forward to many more dance adventures together.
