Founded in 1998, Kathryn Downs Academy of Dance based in Hoyland, Barnsley is committed to provide outstanding training in a variety of genres for children and adults of all ages and abilities.

Our core values are summed up in 5 key words Supportive, Passionate, Inspiring, Creative and Enjoyment.  It is our ambition that these values ensure all members achieve the best of their ability in a caring environment to discover and nurture talents in all fields of dance.

We aim to ensure all children and young people achieve their potential to gain a positive experience.  Members can attend classes once or twice a week as a hobby or may access further intensive training to unleash their potential in order to achieve their dreams.

Our Classes

In addition to weekly classes, the academy offers students entry to graded examinations via Bbodance and IDTA syllabi. Learners are also given the chance to participate in competitions, shows and national performance opportunities.
