My daughter loves dancing with KDF. The dance lessons are provided by excellent teachers giving students a good grounding in dance techniques from which they can flourish.She has made friends and had lots of fun too.


My daughter has been attending classes at KDF for 5 years now and loves it. The classes are engaging, challenging and fun. The teachers consistently encourage all students to do their best no matter their age or background. Students are given amazing opportunities to perform at places like Disneyland Paris, London’s West End and Blackpool. Students of all ages make amazing friendships and develop lifelong skills and confidence.

I have danced with KDF adults for 4 years and my daughter joined as a 'senior' 3 years ago. The dance teaching is excellent and everyone is so friendly. My daughter is off to start her dance teacher training in September thanks to the skills and technique gained at KDF. It is like being part of one big family, gaining lifelong friendships while being able to develop our love of dance.

KDF have not only provided amazing performance opportunities including shows at the Capitol in Horsham and Euro Disney but have always provided a nurturing and encouraging environment which has seen my children flourish both inside and outside of the dance studio. Their continued dedication to their students throughout lockdown was fantastic, providing online dance classes throughout and also weekly dance activities for those who could not join in the online classes.


All from the heart.....

I am so grateful for being a part of KDF! Having not danced for 10 years, I started adult ballet classes 5 years ago and I’ve not looked back since. I’ve taken part in ballet, modern, contemporary, lyrical and jazz technique classes and have had the privilege to dance in four shows. I’ve grown in confidence, improved my strength and fitness levels and gained some true friendships. Most importantly, I can fulfil my passion for dancing! 

I can’t recommend KDF highly enough; friendly, affordable, organised, supportive and respectful. We’re not Team Purple for nothing and I couldn’t imagine life without them now 💜
