About Us

Danceworks is a welcoming studio that brings professional and recreational dance training into the very heart of Cheltenham. With dedicated teachers who are committed to promoting a refreshing atmosphere that combines discipline with enjoyment, we offer students the chance to make dance a rewarding part of their lives.

Run by husband and wife team Whanita La Bouchardiere and John Simkin, Danceworks comprises five purpose built studios and a soon to open coffee shop at the Cheltenham studio premises plus branch schools at Bishops Cleeve and Charlton Kings. Our classes for students under 18 years include ballet, tap, modern, contemporary, street, break, lyrical, acrobatic arts, musical theatre (at Stageworks, our theatre school).

For adults we offer at varying skill levels, ballet, street dance, hip hop, commercial, lyrical street, tap, contemporary, dance fitness and yoga.

Our syllabus teachers have qualified teacher status with the British Ballet Organisation (BBO) and classes with younger students also have Teaching Assistants within the class.
