Suze Bailey She/Her

Founder, Principal, Head of Education

Hello I'm Suze! I have had the greatest honour to teach children and adults since 2006 all across London. It is most definitely my life's work to bring the Arts to all to benefit from the life long gifts it bestows. Once a very shy child it's hard to imagine that I would one day have my own Academy; hands down the best decision I could have ever made. Since then I have enjoyed watching the Academy blossom and grow to 5 locations throughout your community. Dance and theatre gave me the opportunity to grow in confidence, resilience, skill and to travel the world. Now it's my privilege to pass on these gifts to so many with a fabulous dance education whilst illuminating the path to self discovery.

Hello I'm Ms Victoria! Dance has been a huge part of my life, starting when I was just 3 years and I have never stopped. I still take classes now! I couldn't wait to be an assistant to my teacher and quickly realised that teaching is my happy place and the most rewarding purpose in life. It was an honour to be accepted to study at the Royal Academy of Dance taking my skills to the next level. Now a register teacher and Licentiate of RAD I get to share my in depth knowledge of technique with artistry to help pupils achieve their very best. Bringing the joy of dance to all ages from 18 months to adults is the most wonderful experience to have each week and there's nowhere I would rather be.
