At Platinum Dance we train dancers in Street Dance, Contemporary Dance, Acrobatic Arts and Musical Theatre. We will also be adding Aerial Hoop classes very soon! 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 6 days a week.
We are the first dance school in Bury St Edmunds that specialises in Street Dance
Dancers take part in annual Platinum Dance Academy examinations and we put on one big theatre performance a year.
Our Elite Crews regularly compete nationwide and have represented England at the UDO World Championships for 5 consecutive years bringing home trophies in both teams and solos
We regularly invite outside professionals to put on workshops, which has included Jasmine Meakin, Twist and Pulse, Lukas McFarlane, Benjamin Milan, Joshua Pilmore to name just a few. We have also trained with Diversity at their studio in Essex.
Classes take place at our dance studio located on Eastgate Street, Bury St Edmunds. Parking is extremely limited right out side the studio but spaces are available along Eastgate street in the non-residents bays and the Ram Meadow car park is just a short walk away.
Please note that parking outside Icarus salon is not allowed.
