About us

London Dance Academy is a Boutique Dance Studio and Gym in London pioneering innovative dance and fitness classes since 2005.

Catering for all skill levels, from complete beginner to professional artist. Our instructors are not only qualified fitness professionals, but also some of the best teachers and performers in their fields.

Since we opened our doors as London Academy of Pole Dancing (LAP) we have taught over 25,000 students.

Everyone is unique, so we strive to promote a healthy and authentic lifestyle. London Dance Academy's aim has always been to challenge the way people view fitness, focussing on individual needs rather than one size fits all.

We use our experience to design enjoyable and creative ways to stay in great shape, both mentally, physically and emotionally.

We run over 200 classes per week, as well as catering for all manner of corporate group events, private tuition and extra-ordinary hen parties.
