Our Mission

It has been our mission as a family to ignite a passion for dance in people of all ages and abilities, inspiring dancers to reach their full potential whilst building a community that connects people through dance

3 Generations of Dance

The County School of Dancing was taken over by Molly Richardson in 1957 (63 years ago!) Her daughter, Mary Richardson then ran the school from 1966 - and now her daughter, Anna Dieguez is at the helm and is continuing the legendary school of dance for today's generation. County Dance is well established in the UK and has a reputation for teaching excellence, producing some of the best young dancers in recent years. County Dance doesn't only cater for competitors - we pride ourselves on being able to cater for everyone, from 3 years old to 80+, complete beginner to experienced professional - whatever your circumstances you can be assured of a warm welcome.

Dance Studios & Facilities

We are very fortunate to have 2 full time studios and a large car park opposite the studios for our pupils (permit required). Our studios are fully equipped and create a warm friendly atmosphere for learning and socialising. Our large dance floor, with sprung canadian maple is ideal for all dancing. We have a lobby, reception desk, seating for up to 100 including a converted raised stage area with balcony, kitchen, display of ballroom shoes for sale and male and female toilets. Built in electronic music equipment, variable speed (essential whilst learning as a beginner) and a huge selection of strict tempo music. Soft lighting and of course the essential Glitter Ball!
