Our Story

Our Story

Welcome to our inspirational, nurturing and motivated dance family here at Phillomena Dance School. Our success story began in 1993, when we opened our doors for the very first time starting with just 25 students. Over the last two decades (and some!), Phillomena has continued to grow and flourish and has now become one of Surrey’s most well-known and highly regarded dance schools.

Phillomena is proud to offer exams that follow the International Dance Teachers’ Association (IDTA) syllabus in the following subjects – Ballet, Tap, Theatre Craft, Freestyle & Street. Examinations are not compulsory, however, so that you, the parent, know that the journey your child takes with us is structured & progressive, we offer all children the opportunity to participate.

Performance

We also provide performance opportunities to all our lovely students when we invite them all to be a part of our Bi-Annual Show (next one booked 2018) – the parents of which are always blown away by the exceptional high standard we manage to create in our wonderful productions. We are also extremely excited to be forming a ‘Display Team’ – this is a new concept we are starting this year and we hope to have a great team up and running by the end of spring 2017. We will be ready and able to entertain the masses at local events and charity fund raisers throughout the summer. Parents will be able to see the joy their child experiences when they can perform for an audience and the valuable life lessons to be learnt whilst working within a team environment.

Phillomena is exceptionally proud of our many students who have successfully auditioned to perform in shows in the West End and National Ballet companies and also to those older students who have shown true dedication and talent by gaining places in many of the top performing arts colleges around the country.
