"We have attended Emily Jade Theatre Arts for over five years now since my eldest daughter was just two. With simply fantastic shows to wonderful exam results, the children have gone from strength to strength and they really love their classes which are well structured and great fun.   


I'm already counting the days until my youngest little girl is old enough to join her big sisters.  We are so lucky to have such a great place in Eltham.  Thank you Miss Emily!!"

We dance for laughter, we dance for tears, 

we dance for 


We dance for HOPES, 

we are the dancers,

we create the DREAMS.

we dance for SCREAMS,
