Welcome to Julie London Dance.
We are a boutique dance academy based in the heart of Crouch End, established in 2012 as New London Dance Academy. We are a positive, nurturing school with a happy and loyal following who are growing up with us as we grow as a school.
We aim to help each student progress and achieve their full potential in dance, while enjoying each and every class. We strive to teach excellence in dance through respect, kindness and positivity.
Our programme helps dancers to build strong technique, and to develop confidence, performance skills and artistry while nurturing a love of the arts and entertainment.
We offer classes in Ballet, Tap and Jazz from ages 2 to adult learners.
“With you every step of the way on your dance journey."
