React Dance Academy is a forward thinking, inclusive dance company that offers high level technical and performance training for dancers and musical theatre performers from the age of 3 years plus.

We are based in Kenton, Newcastle upon Tyne.


We offer a wide range of dance styles: ballet, tap, theatre craft, modern jazz, freestyle, lyrical, contemporary, acro, musical theatre, and youth theatre (drama). Taught by fully qualified, motivated staff who are dedicated to offering a happy, friendly, inclusive environment designed to get the best out of our students.


We are proud to have trained with and follow the IDTA syllabus for our classes and will allow our students, should they wish to progress through IDTA examinations. Performing is also an important part of our offering as it is key to their development as a dancer and a child.


We usually offer a minimum of 2 live performance opportunities a year for all who wish to take part. These are usually in venues near us in Kenton or Gosforth, Newcastle. This is under review - but we did create a wonderful virtual performance during lockdown 2020 - so they will get the opportunity to showcase their hardwork!

We also offer regular workshops, dance days, and masterclasses to help dancers try new styles, advance their training, and of course its open to all - students and non students.

Our classes and sessions are open to all - as long as they will find enjoyment in dance - they are welcome! 


React Dance Academy also is very keen to provide a safe, nurturing environment for children to learn and grow.


As a business we assure you that:


We continue our professional development with the IDTA, related courses and workshops throughout the year to be up to speed on best practices for teaching dance;


We strive to run the business in an ethical & professional way.


We use age appropriate moves, costumes and music with children. We are a child centred school where mindset and confidence are a priority.
