Bury St Edmunds First Street Dance Studio

Come and get involved

Platinum Dance Academy is a dance school based in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk. We are the first dance school in Bury St Edmunds that specialises in Street Dance. At Platinum Dance we train dancers in both Street Dance and Contemporary dance. The Academy was set up in 2010 by Lorna Thompson who recognised the lack of Street Dance training available in the town. The academy started as just one class and has grown enormously since then. We now have our own studio and run classes most evenings.

Classes take place at our dance studio located on Eastgate Street, Bury St Edmunds.

Parking is available down Eastgate street. We have 3 spaces available next to our entrance and APTEC garage have kindly allowed us to park outside their property when it is closed. Please note that parking outside or opposite Icarus salon is not allowed.

Dancers take part in annual Platinum Dance Academy examinations and twice yearly dance performances. They also perform at community events and fetes, and the elite crews regularly compete nationwide and have represented England at the UDO World Championships for the 3rd consecutive year bringing home trophies in teams and solos.

We also invite outside professionals to put on workshops for those interested. We recently travelled to Diversitys studio to train with the boys for the day, Youtube star Jasmine Meakin held a workshop at our studio as well as Britains Got Talent Finalists ``Twist and Pulse``. Have a look at the video page to see all of our recent adventures!

We also teach the UDO Street Dance Syllabus for those interested in achieving accredited Street Dance qualifications. We have a 100% pass rate with most receiving distinction grades. Dancers can work their way up to a level 2 certificate in Street Dance Teaching.

We are always trying to come up with new and fresh ideas to keep the dancers on top form and to keep their passion for dance alive! We often make music videos to give the dancers something different to do. Here's one we did for Halloween at the studio check it out
