Welcome to Darnley School of Dancing.

DANCE, DRAMA & SINGING LESSONS IN GRAVESEND/NORTHFLEET

The Darnley School of Dancing is based in Gravesend, Kent. Our aim is for excellence in every form of dance our students undertake to learn. We believe that learning dance is best done in a fun and enjoyable environment.

We provide lessons in Ballet, Tap, Modern & Jazz focusing on both technique and performance. Exams can be taken in all dance subjects and there is opportunity to participate in shows, pantomimes, fetes and festivals throughout the year.

At Darnley School of Dancing, we believe that the performing arts should be accessible to everyone. That’s why we cater for all ages, ranging from pre-school (3 years) to adults, including post retirement.

We offer a variety of classes across the performing arts sector.
