Brooks Dance Academy, formerly The Shoreham School of Dance, was founded by Arts Ed graduate and ex-professional dancer Jacqueline Brooks (ISTD CDE) in 1995. In recent years, her eldest daughter Lucy Brooks (Masters in Drama & Theatre) has become heavily involved with the school. The school has grown from strength to strength since moving into our own dance studio in Jan 2016 which is packed full of classes for all ages and abilities.
The school provides ISTD syllabus and bespoke dance training with fantastic exam results in Modern, Tap & Ballet, as well as teaching styles such as Contemporary, Street, Commercial, Lyrical, Jazz and Acro. Students perform and compete at local dance competitions & festivals and the whole school performs in our bi-annual show. In 2019 this was held at Attenborough Centre for the Creative Arts in Brighton.
Our dancers are defined by their solid technique, and we believe the discipline of traditional Ballet is very important. Many pupils take 2 or more Ballet classes a week. We strive to teach our dancers expressive and creative choreography, explore modern dance disciplines and encourage dancers to be unique.
In 2018, our senior dancers worked with our troupe choreographer Miss Lucy to put together a music video piece to Cocoon by local recording artist Emma Gatrill. Here's the final result, filmed & edited by Chris Lucraft.
