WTA Dance Academy Ilkley


Provides a high standard of training in all types of dance, including classical ballet, modern theatre, tap, jazz, character, and choreography.

We also run master classes and workshops in musical theatre, contemporary dance and bollywood as well as an associate programme.

Although the main aim of WTA is to introduce children to the joys and benefits of the performing arts we also provide serious technical and performance training for students who are considering a career in the theatre or teaching.

So whether you require a single class in any given dance genre or more in-depth training we have something to offer everyone.

All dance classes are taught with a sense of fun and enjoyment whilst at the same time encouraging every pupil to reach their full potential whatever their ability.

The Academy is based in Ilkley and Ben Rhydding in three different locations which all have sprung floors, barres and changing areas. We offer a warm welcome to all pupils and their families; parents are encouraged to have a drink and a chat in our parents waiting area whilst the classes are in progress. The School has it’s own dance-wear shop that stocks all uniform requirements as well as a wide range of non-uniform dance wear and equipment.
