About Linda Cooper

The Linda Cooper School of Dance has been established for over forty years inspiring dancers throughout the years.

Classes are available for all ages from our Diddy Dancers at two and half years through to the Silver Swans – the Royal Academy of Dance Ballet for the over 55’s.

We are an inclusive school including special needs with fully qualified professional staff.

We specialise in Ballet, Tap, Modern, Freestyle, Contemporary and Gymnastic Dance, with pupils entering for the Nation Association of Teachers of Dancing examinations.

All grades are C.D.E.T. approved accruing UCAS points for prospective university students.

Most of all we hope our pupils love their dance classes gaining great enjoyment. The school offers private lessons and exam classes in addition to general classes and professional qualification teacher training.

We also give our pupils, through Dance School productions, the wonderful experience of performing in our shows.

About Linda Cooper School of Dance

Linda developed her enthusiasm and love for dance and performing ‘treading the boards’ for the first time at the age of three years.

Formally trained in Ballet with the Royal Academy of Dance until her teachers introduced the National Association of Teachers of Dancing tap and modern syllabi. From then on the next is history leading to performing, choreography and teaching. The ultimate ambition was to have her own School.

Linda became committed to providing the opportunity for those of all backgrounds and abilities to access dance embracing the ethos ‘no one is excluded.’

Over the course of Linda’s performing and teaching career she has achieved the highest qualifications gaining a degree in Dance/Arts Therapies which led to posts teaching primary, BTec and A level for Leicestershire and Derbyshire Education Authorities. Fellowship of the NATD was followed by appointment as an eximiner in 2012. Linda is also a Mutally Recognised Teacher of The Royal Academy of Dance and a Member of the International Dance Teachers Association.

All of the teaching staff have been trained by Linda, many starting as young children progressing to classroom assistants, and through a process of mentoring attain a teaching qualification.

This is an ongoing process so that we are always looking for children who show a passion for dance and theatre arts as successors in The School’s tradition of training in the future.
