DFA was again named Vocational Dance School of the Year (Gold) in the 2016 Anne Walker MBE Dance School of The Year (DSOTY) Award.
This is the second DSOTY award for DFA. In 2015 we also won the 2014 Dance School of the Year Award Vocational Category Winner in the same category during the awarding ceremony in July 2015.
“We are so proud to receive this recognition for our professional dance college, for the second year in a row, especially as we were up against schools from all over the UK! The judges were again impressed with the breadth of training we give our students and the high success rate of our graduates in winning professional dance contracts, not just across the dance spectrum, but around the world.”
“I am exceptionally proud of the DFA family—our weekly pupils and parents, incredible students and dedicated faculty and staff.” ~ Tracy Hawkes
