It is lovely to be open again and a massive thank you to all of our customers for being so amazing 💗

This is just one of the many appointments we've had so far, sisters Lottie and Auryn from Kings Academy of Performing Arts who came in to get new ballet shoes looking super cute while showing off their smiley feet and faces!

As we have a fair few followers now, Its probably about time you saw the face behind the profile! I'm Jessica, I run the DDE course at Roynon Dance Centre and mainly tutor the practical Unit 4 classes in Modern and Tap.

I have a Dance School in Sarisbury Green called Kings Academy of Performing Arts and I also run Roynon Dancewear

I believe we are stronger when we work together- Collaboration over competition always! 💕

It's #TeamwearTuesday ✨ How beautiful is this Burgundy Elite Tracksuit we produced for Kings Academy of Performing Arts - A beautiful Burgundy ombré base with a gold glitter sublimated band with glitter effect arms. Did you know that we design your uniform until you are entirely happy with it - we let our clients have free reign over the design and they can make as many amendments as they need to before going into production ✨

Fabulous work ballet fitness people! Sorry I didn’t get a chance to say that at the end, Zoom cut us off!
I hope you all enjoyed & lovely to see your smiley faces ✨
Thank you for such a fun party! A great start to Christmas! Have a lovely holiday ###
Good morning! Super excited for today’s party. Is St Mary’s Church in Warsash? Thanks! X
I hope you don’t mind me posting this, but wondered if your students might be interested. I’m a local author, and dance teacher. I have just published my first children's story. Jasmine's Magic Dance Shoes.

Jasmine goes to a Ballroom dance class. She buys a pair of dance shoes which turn out to have a magic power, and her dancing improves overnight. Her dance teacher is so impressed that the search begins to find her a dance partner. They enter competitions, and win lots of trophies, then they get to dance in a competition at the Blackpool Tower Ballroom, but will it go as planned?

This is a short story aimed at 4 - 8 years old with over 30 colour illustrations, but suitable for any age if they are interested in dancing, or just love a story with a twist. It is approx 4000 words, so older children can read it themselves, and younger children can have it read to them. When I searched for children's books about dancing, I found lots of books about ballet, but none about ballroom. It will give you an insight into the world of ballroom dancing with the extra sparkle of some magic.

Available to buy from The Book Shop, Lee on Solent High Street, PO13 9DD or order from both prized at £5.50

I will be on Radio Solent with Julian Clegg on Friday 14th June at approx 7.25am talking about the book. Also, will be doing a book signing at The Book Shop, Lee on Solent on Saturday 15th June between 11am - 2pm. Hope to see you there.

This is a brilliant idea! If your dancer has an email account, we can add them to our system so they receive updates! X

Another of Rosina's back to school tips.💜

Set your teens up with a dance account and forward all the emails you get about the events and classes that they do.

Allow them to begin to take responsibility whilst still also being involved and know what's going on!

In the past I've had teens take complete control of their training and admin - maybe even their invoices - it's instilling great habits!

One very ecstatic team and principal this evening ✨


Qualified or unqualified dance teachers?

This topic is not often discussed, but it is something that we feel is so important and are extremely passionate about at King’s.

It can be so difficult to choose the best class for your child when there are so many choices available. But did you know that in the UK, there are no laws or requirements to have a formal teaching qualification to teach dance?

Unqualified dance teachers put their dancers at huge risk or can be so dangerous. You wouldn’t put your child’s body in the hands of an unqualified doctor, physio or surgeon…. So why an unqualified dance teacher?

At King’s we’re proud to say our staff are either fully qualified, or training to be qualified with the ISTD (Imperial society of Teachers of Dancing) RBS, (Royal Ballet School) and BAST (British Association of Singing Teachers). All are internationally recognised dance/singing governing bodies. This means that not only is your child safe in our hands, but they are also learning from an experienced teacher who continues to keep their knowledge up to date and is trained to bring out the very best in your child.

Between us we have:
1 level 3 PT,
5 level 4 DDEs,
2 Licentiates,
1 Degree,
1 Masters, and
1 Fellowship qualification.

We think this is something to shout about!

Trying to get on top of back to school this week, but it’s been tough with a poorly toddler! She barely ever fell asleep on me as a baby, and I couldn’t tell you the last time she napped! Making the most of these extra cuddles though ♥️


My Grown up and me- from BIRTH to 3 years old!

💛Develop a love of music, a passion for movement and make friends for life!

💜Developed by Miss Jess, a Mummy, Fellowship qualified ISTD dance teacher and provisional affiliate teacher for the Royal Ballet School and Miss Emily, head of our Lower School Programme, these new classes are perfect for starting your little ones dance journey.

Very exciting meeting this evening… all will be revealed! ✨


Missing this gorgeous bunch 💕Not long now! ✨


Received some really exciting news last night, which will be a HUGE change for me, the school and the college. I can’t share yet, but I am busting with excitement! ✨


When we took our ballet students to see Birmingham Royal Ballet in Alice In Wonderland, around 2016 ✨


This was an incredible week. I was so lucky to be chosen as only 1 of 30 inspirational teachers to bring this amazing programme to their dance schools. We are going to learn differently and have SO MUCH FUN in September. I cannot wait! 🥰♥️

✨ We recently welcomed the first cohort of recreational dance teachers for a week of intensive training on our new Affiliate Training and Assessment Programme ✨

We were delighted by enthusiasm and response from the group: ‘The most inspirational week of teacher training EVER. A full-on week of amazing classes, lectures, tasks and workshops with the most amazing group of open-minded people…’
