Classes in Penicuik, Midlothian


Dance Pointe Academy is Midlothians' premier school of performing arts who are committed to creating a fun, creative, energetic and supportive environment that helps students of all ages feel welcome and in turn, allows them to explore the magic and beauty of dance!

We run classes daily at Dance Pointe Studios in Penicuik offering a wide range of different styles of dance ensuring there is something for everyone, whether coming for fun, for exercise or to pursue a career in the industry.

Throughout the year there are always chances to perform, compete and enter in-house and external examinations, however, It is not compulsory for students to enter any exams or perform if they do not want to.
