Welcome to RAPA Dance

At RAPA Dance we believe in nurturing young talent, creating dancers and performers who can express themselves in an individual way so they are confident and bright performers.

We are here to guide and train your child to a professional and high standard, both in the ISTD syllabus and with freestyle classes whether it be for sheer enjoyment or for a career in dance and the Performing Arts, keeping their excitement and love for what they do intact.

'RAPA Dance' specialise in all genres of dance, with fully qualified ISTD trained teachers providing classes from ages 2 through to adults.  Our professional studios are based at Ratton School in Eastbourne, East Sussex


We'e got some fantastic news to announce! 

I am beyond proud of our dance school. We've all worked so hard at RAPA Dance to get to where we are today providing classes for all ages, levels and for all children to feel they have somewhere safe to dance. Myself and our wonderful teachers are so proud to have been selected and to now be an "Affiliate School of
The London Ballet Company."

Our #rapaberries are wonderful souls and to be recognised for all their hard work is just the icing on a very delicious cake.

I'm excited to be affiliated with TLBC as we have similar ideas and visions for young dancers.
The ethos of The London Ballet Company is to advance the technical skills and nurture the mental, physical and social 
well-being of young artists in an inclusive creative stimulating and inspiring training environment.

It is our ethos to provide a platform for dancers to develop their career providing performing opportunities regardless 
of shape and size. Really looking forward to exciting times ahead.

'dance is...' 
May 12th 2024

The Royal Hippodrome Theatre. Eastbourne

In May 2022, we held our first show since 2018 at the amazing 'Hippodrome Theatre. I am so proud of everything these amazing dancers have achieved and it was wonderful to see them all together and having fun, performing once again on stage.

‘Dancing in the Wings’.

"I'm so proud of all the talent we had on the stage. It was such a wonderful day and I wish we could do it all over again! Everyone was so professional throughout the show. From those whose first time it was on stage, to our amazing adults and to my baby/ RAPA berries who are now my amazing seniors. So much work went into the show and it wouldn't have been possible without my wonderful teachers. Your choreography has been inspiring and beautiful and I can't wait for many more shows with you all.

For me it has always been about inclusion, nurturing, and guiding young dancers to be who themselves and to help them find their little sparkle and I think we did just that in our show!"
