Welcome to the Katrina Earley School of Dance. The school was opened in 1993 at the Beaufort Community Centre in Southbourne, Bournemouth, with just a handful of pupils aged 3 and 4 years. The school continues to make steady growth and has in the region of 180 children aged between 3 and 18 years. We believe that we are still small enough to give each student a sense that their individual needs will be met and their talents fostered and encouraged.
