Take 1 Dance

Established in 2008, we are an exceptional and renowned dance school based in the heart of Nottingham.


We strive to bring out the best in all our students, working with children as young as 4 to adults who are still looking to exercise and stay fit. We take pride in our varied timetable that allow dancers of all calibres able to express themselves in a way that is comfortable yet extraordinary.


Our aim is to create holistic dancers where any background is welcome and encouraged as we believe dance has no limits on what each individual can achieve, learn and share. Some of our achievements include:
