Hilton Hall Dance Academy opened its doors to the public in 1994. The main studios are situated on the first floor of Raglan House in St. Peters Street Maidstone
. Facilities include three fully equipped dance and drama studios with sprung floors, mirrors and fixed wall barres as well as a changing room, waiting area and reception.
Classes are available for our regular members in Ballet, Tap, Modern and Jazz following the syllabus of the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing (ISTD). All pupils are encouraged to take these exams which have not only been designed for those wishing to pursue a career in dance but also for those taking dance as a leisure activity.
We also offer Street dance, Drama, Singing, Musical Theatre and Acrobatic Arts.
Our open classes are available to all on a pay-as-you-go basis.
The Academy produces its annual show at the end of the spring term and all pupils are involved in this production. Our Competitive Team also performs at Dance Festivals and has also performed at Her Majesty's Theatre London.
We are always looking for new performance opportunities for our pupils who have performed at Dance World, Earls Court, The Kent County Show, The Jeanne Hachette Festival, Beauvais France, Disneyland Paris, 'Move It', the London Palladium, Her Majesty's Theatre London, Basil Brush Series Two, Globo Loco Series One and Two, and Ministry of Mayhem for CITV.
If you wish to view our facilities or book a free trial session, you are welcome to pop in to our studios during opening hours - or contact us using the details on the contact page
- and one of our friendly receptionists will show you round.
