About Us

Founded in 1989, Miss Jenny's School Of Dance is now in its 26th year of teaching and performing! Based in Paignton, the school offers classes to children from the age of two to adults.

Each class is constructed so you wont get lost in a crowd and to get the most out of your class and experience. Pupils can chose to take exams to progress through the N.A.T.D grades in all dance styles. Award style exams are also offered. The N.A.T.D believe in inclusion and welcomes children with disabilities and special needs. The syllabus is designed to promote and improve dancing, improve technical ability, teaching skill, and most importantly allow the dancer to have fun.
