This month saw the school take part in Move It, the UK’s largest dance exhibition at London’s ExCel Centre.
Principal Natalie Herbert-Moss said: “An outstanding performance by the senior performance team received roaring applause, and the students graced the same stage as famous dancers, industry professionals and top vocational colleges.
“Senior students were approached by talent scouts to perform on the freestyle stage.
“CBBC and EastEnders’ star Mia Mckenna-Bruce, who played Penny Branning in the soap, now attends classes after recommendations of the high level of training.
“Over the last six months, there have been some incredible opportunities for the young local dancers and some real success stories.”
In November, the school, in Green Street Green Road, Dartford, achieved a 100% pass rate in tap, modern and ballet exams with all students getting at least a merit.
Several senior students have also been accepted into dance colleges across the UK and will start training in September.
One dancer, Georgia Mae, has been performing on the UK Tour of Gangsta Granny, written by comedian David Walliams.
Nine students were selected to take part in pantomimes in Dartford, Gravesend, Sevenoaks and Chatham. Dancers also performed on the pitch at Twickenham Stadium before the London Double Header rugby game between Saracens and Worcester Warriors in November.
Industry professionals will be sharing their experiences at Sapphire Dance Academy’s Easter workshops next week. The five, three or one-day classes are open to anyone with dance experience aged seven to 20.
