Debut is the number one performing arts school in the North-West. With a huge wealth of experienced and professional teachers, a huge purpose studio building and more opportunities than any other school, Debut is a popular choice for new dancers and those wanting to take their dance training to the next level. 

We teach syllabus work under the I.D.T.A (International Dance Teachers Association) and U.K.A (United Kingdom Alliance). Students at Debut can take exams twice a year. Students gain exceptional results, our last set of exams saw 94% of students gaining the highest marks possible.


All of our teachers and staff have D.B.S certificates, First Aid and Safeguarding training. All of our Safeguarding, Policies and Procedures are available upon request. 

When you send your child to a dance school, we understand that you want to see them perform as much as possible, which is why at Debut, we put on two productions per year for parents, friends and families. Our main Summer Show takes place on the first weekend of July, followed by our Christmas Pantomime in December.


Alongside our main productions and exams, we offer students the opportunity to take part in regional competitions in ballet, tap, modern and street/hip hop as a soloist, duo or as part of our elite teams.

Debut Academy of Performing Arts also holds the title of Vocational Dance School of The Year for 4 consecutive years and is currently the North-West Nomination for the National Entertainment Awards Best Dance School Category.
