Deryl Whittaker’s Northern Academy of Dance & Stage is one of the North’s leading Academies. The Academy is housed in a lovely stone building on a very nice Business Park. It has 4000 sq feet of dance space and is fully equipped and has a large free car park. At the Academy we aim to encourage all students to achieve their personal best in their performance of dance by fostering a pleasant and stimulating learning environment.

Northern Academy is a centre of excellence for young dancer development providing intensive ballet training in Royal Academy of Dancing (RAD) and in tap an modern Imperial Society of Teachers of Dance (ISTD) in preparation for students to enter a professional career if they desire, or provide creative and inspiring tuition as an enrichment of life. We are also members of IDTA, and UKA.
