About Dance Pointe Academy

"Learning to dance has many physical, emotional and social benefits for people of all ages and walks of life."   

Dance Pointe Academy is Midlothian and Borders premier school of performing arts who are committed to creating a fun, creative, energetic and supportive environment that helps students of all ages feel welcome and in turn, allows them to explore the magic and beauty of dance!

We run classes daily at Dance Pointe Studios in Penicuik and Peebles offering a wide range of different styles of dance ensuring there is something for everyone, whether coming for fun, for exercise or to pursue a career in the industry.

Throughout the year there are always chances to perform, compete and enter in-house and external examinations, however, it is not compulsory for students to enter any exams or perform if they do not wish to.

 "Last week at Can You Dance? in Edinburgh I could not resist to approach you to say how much I did enjoy your choreography. It made click to what I look forward to find when having young students dancing; the composition was very appropriate for their skills and their capabilities, I really enjoyed the way that you played with patterns, body shapes and use of the space. I did also love the phrasing and tempo. 

The honest and genuine interpretation from your students were a clear example of their hard work and commitment. I can see that your school promotes a positive working ethic, manners, etiquette and it is always a pleasure to find motivated young students".
