Studio 52 is a friendly, modern and creative dance academy situated in the heart of Wollaston, Northamptonshire. Originally established over 50 years ago, the school has taught generations of children and has become a valued part of the community.

All students are given the opportunity to take regular assessments, showcase their work in front of parents at our presentation days, take part in specialist workshops and perform in our professional theatre shows held every other year.

We pride ourselves on our happy family atmosphere and enabling all children to learn and make friends. Self-motivation is actively encouraged and we strive to promote discipline, good manners, team work and self confidence. The welfare of all students is our top priority.
