ABOUT

EP DANCE was founded in 2016 by our Principal, Director & Founder Emily Place. Starting off with Baby Ballet and Adult Tap, we now offer classes in all aspects of theatre dance for kids and teens and classes for adults as well as courses, workshops and dance camps.

 

Our students are given many opportunities throughout the year, from our annual show, dance competitions and much more.

 

Class sizes are small so each student can reach their maximum potential.

 

Classes are run from our central Stockport dance studio.

EMILY PLACE

PRINICPAL, DIRECTOR & FOUNDER

Emily started dancing at the age of 4, training in IDTA Ballet, Tap and Modern Jazz. When she left school she embarked on a 2 year Performing Arts Diploma at Shena Simon College, studying Ballet, Tap, Jazz, Contemporary, Street, Commercial and Musical Theatre, gaining a triple Distinction. Upon leaving Shena Simon, Emily began her teacher training and started her first freelance teacher job with a dance school in Cheshire in September 2015. EP DANCE was then opened in April 2016 and the rest is history! Emily has most recently trained with Urban Strides on their Teacher Training Qualification to bring real authentic Street Dance to Stockport.
