TEAM Dance Academy is a thriving dance school in the heart of Crystal Palace, South East London. At TEAM we offer affordable yet professional dance classes from age 2 years up. The school was founded in 2010 by Principal Lucy Newman who is very experienced and qualified in all aspects of dance.  Lucy and her staff pride themselves on their professional approach and uncompromising standards. 

As a school we provide traditional dance training for children and young people of different ages and abilities who want to attend a high quality dance class within a safe and positive environment. At TEAM we believe Ballet is where every dancer should begin and therefore everyone attends I.D.T.A ballet as their first discipline and then they can take additional classes in I.D.T.A Tap & Modern, street, acrobatics, stretching, progressive ballet technique, and musical theatre. 

Through an established system of teaching basic techniques and developing each pupils’ individual skills, TEAM  dancers are encouraged to attain the highest standards in both examinations and in their participation in competitive dance festivals, shows and local events.


TEAM is able to offer something for everyone, whether pupils are dancing for fun or seeking to achieve a high professional standard. We encourage all pupils and  parents to have fun and enjoy the happy atmosphere for which the school is highly regarded and proud of.


We look forward to welcoming you to TEAM


Lucy Newman
