Yorkshire Rose Academy of Dance (YRAD) provides an amazing range of classes for children aged 2½ upwards.
Inclusive and engaging classes that inspire, improve and nurture students both in confidence and technique.
Children form incredible friendships, learn valuable life skills and discipline whilst having lots of fun.
Opportunities to take dance examinations and perform on stage, plus private lessons and workshops.
Established in 2013 our team of highly qualified teachers is led by School Principal and Founder Miss Kerry who trained at and works for the prestigious Royal Ballet School.
YRAD is so much more than just a dance school, my daughter has made the best of friends and as well as providing excellent training, the teachers ensure it is a safe, supportive and nurturing environment that she is thriving in. She just loves her YRAD family!
I cannot recommend Yorkshire Rose Academy of Dance highly enough. Kerry Whitfield is a dedicated and talented teacher, who succeeds in inspiring each and every one of her students to be the very best dancer they possibly can be. Miss Kerry's emphasis on correct technique, coupled with her patient encouragement, has ensured that my daughter has made considerable progress since she began attending ballet classes at YRAD.
Both of my children love dancing at Yorkshire Rose so much they do 13 classes between them! The teachers here are brilliant at empowering young dancers to understand their bodies and make their own decisions about how much to challenge themselves.
My daughter has been dancing in two classes with Miss Kerry for 4 years (after dancing elsewhere previously) and has unlearnt her bad habits and now has much better technique, improved discipline and a greater enjoyment of dance. The structure of the lessons and the high expectations of behaviour in class encourage the girls to apply themselves diligently.
YRAD is the best dance school I have ever been to. The teachers are so supportive and helpful and are just extraordinary. As well as the teachers, everyone else is just so friendly and honestly it's like a second family to me. I love YRAD so much.
My daughter has been dancing with YRAD for just over a year. It's been amazing watching her confidence and ability grow and she loves her classes. I absolutely recommend Miss Kerry and her team, lessons are engaging and fun but also informative, and students are encouraged to learn, grow and challenge themselves in a positive way.
My eldest daughter, Amelie, was one of Miss Kerry’s first YRAD students and is still loving ballet nearly 7 years later. Her little sister Harriet has followed in her footsteps and I love the fact both girls enjoy the discipline and fun of dance!
