DPA T-shirts are compulsory for all students who participate in any of our shows and are the only T-shirts that are permissible to wear for classes where that item is listed on the uniform list (see studio class wear list).

New uniform must be purchased for EXAMS.

Please note that uniform is compulsory in all classes and must be worn by all students within the first 3 weeks of joining DPA.

All bows are available from DPA only.

On the 1st week of every new half term we will remind students about uniform if after that they don’t have items/are not dressed correctly they will not be allowed to take part in the class.

Praise For DPA

My 2 children have been attending DPA for a year. They have been welcomed into this nurturing environment like family. They have grown in confidence and love the very many classes they attend. The staff are amazing, caring and encouraging. I cannot recommend highly enough.

Sophy E

What we both love about DPA is the support all students give each other and how they all celebrate individual or group successes regardless of their own involvement. She has made many friends and considers herself very much one of the DPA family.

Rachel B - Parent

DPA is amazing and my second family, we work through struggles and learn how to be better performers because of it.
