International Dance School Of The Year 2020 Overall winner
It is always an honour to be recognised for what you do, but this year with all its negativity and challenges, to be awarded Overall Winner of the 2020 International Dance School of the year came as a huge surprise.
As we listened to all the great things that were achieved by the winning schools in the individual categories, we felt honoured to be picked as finalist against all those brilliant schools. Then they start talking about the overall winner with how they took the Covid situation and about new initiatives to train professionals who find themselves out of work and you start to think OMG they are talking about us. I'm quite happy to bask in the glory but the driving force behind all the innovation is Diana. Her vision for the school is on another planet always looking for ways to help our art. I couldn't agree more with what she said in our acceptance speech, "Dancing makes you happy"
This is a win for all of us WE ALL make ACS Dance Centre a winner.

Lets stay on top of Covid and keep our studio open, if you should feel Ill or have been in contact with someone who has been Ill, please contact us for advise.
We encourage those who have previously lacked access to dance to give it a try with classes for the socially isolated such as recently retired people or the mobility challenged and some scholarships and subsidised classes available.
The passion and talent of our experienced dance teachers and artists shines through and we help our students both young and old grow in skill, confidence, health and happiness.
ACS children grow and flourish creatively away from the stresses of the cyber age and school exam pressures, our adult dancers learn new skills, find friendships and help keep back the passing years by keeping both body and mind active, promoting health and happiness. Coupled with this our professional students qualify with a world renowned dance organisation, the ISTD, and have fulfilling careers as teachers and performers across the UK and around the world.
Dancing lessons are all held in our state of the art studio complex in Albert Road on the borders of Romford and Hornchurch. The studios are conveniently located on many bus routes and within easy walking distance of Romford Station on the new Crossrail Elizabeth line, we also have our own car park.
So whether you have been inspired yourself by “Strictly Come Dancing” and want to try your luck at chachacha or waltz, want to learn a special dance for your wedding or holiday or aspire to give your toddler or older child a life-long gift and love for dance, we would love to help and can’t wait to hear from you soon!
