we are ep dance
Back in 2016, Emily Place, our Principal, Director, and Founder, had a vision: to create a dance school like no other. With a humble start of Ballet for tiny tots and Tap for adults, we now offers an array of theatre dance classes for kids and teens. You can find us busting moves in our Stockport studio or dishing out the dance fever in community spaces across Cheshire.
We love giving our students every chance to shine, from our annual shows to examinations, medal tests and competitions.
Plus, with small class sizes, each dancer can hit their full potential and really own the dance floor.
"EP DANCE has helped my child so much over so little time. She’s grown in confidence and loves her classes, teacher and the shows. I cannot recommend it enough"

What we do
Inspiring weekly dance classes from age 1 to 18
Examinations and medal tests with the IDTA
Annual Shows at a professional theatre
Rewarding our students
We regularly reward our students through our "Sparkle Awards" (star of the week) in class and our annual awards ceremonies to celebrate our student's hardwork and achievements.
We have been in our Stockport studio since 2020 and have been running classes in Stockport since 2016.
We run classes from age 2-18 in Ballet, Tap, Modern Jazz, Street Dance, Acro and Contemporary.
We also hire out our central Stockport studio to external hirers for rehearsals, photoshoots, fitness classes and more.
Our aim is to INSPIRE the next generation of dancers by instilling in them PASSION, determination and allowing them to DREAM big and be creative.
We aim to provide our students with a home from home environment at the studio, where everyone can truly be themselves.
handle with care policy
If your family is experiencing a tough day, week or month, your child may bring those feelings to dance. If we are aware of the situation, we can keep an eye out on them.
We don't need to know the details, just an email, a message or an in-person chat as you drop them off saying "Handle with Care" and we sort it from there.
We want to create a safe environment.
We are here for you and your family.
Classes held from our very own studio
We moved into our very own studio space in the centre of Stockport in March 2020. This gives us greater flexibility when it comes to the classes and timetable that we can offer, including dance camps, photoshoots, additional workshops and rehearsals and private tuition which is becoming increasingly popular with our students!
Our studio is also available to hire to external hirers for fitness classes, training sessions, drama groups, community groups, photoshoots and much more.
3 week trial
We offer a 3 week trial because we believe it takes more than one class to get a true feel for the class your child is trialling, the studio, the teacher and to see if this is something they really want to commit to moving forwards.
For just £15 for 3 weeks, your child can trial any class they wish and you can decide together whether EP DANCE is right for your child and your family.
