"I am incredibly proud of our Danzone dancers & parents, who competed in the World Tap Dance Championship in Germany". Miss Clare


Throughout 2018 DANZONE girls have been 'tapping' for customers visiting Lidl's in Swindon, raising money for the NSPCC.

It's 2018 and DANZONE perform at the Wyvern Theatre for the third time. As the dance school continues to grow the children continue to impress with both their enthusiasm and ability, inspired by Miss Clare's ethos- 

"Dance should be about the joy of dancing." 


November 2017
Three DANZONE dancers take part in the IDO World Tap Dance Championships, in Germany. They bring home a gold medal each for their group dance. Tap dancers come from all over the world to compete, so this is a massive achievement for these girls.

DANZONE does..... Christmas 2013

21st Dec 2:30pm at the Thomas Hughes Memorial Hall in Uffington, an informal presentation of our Saturday morning work.

DANZONE does......... Halloween!

The Danzone Halloween Fun Parties took place on 25th & 26th October in Uffington & Nythe - there was lost of ghostly goings-on and wacky fun with witches and wizards. 

DANZONE does............ Summer School 2013 

This year's Danzone summer school took place in July at St Paul's Church, Covingham. On day 1 we had a Mary Poppins musical theatre extravaganza which set the theme for the week, and culminated in a show on the final day.

We had a fantastic team of guest teachers including Miss Frances Wescott, Jemma Turland and resident teachers Miss Hayley and Miss Clare.

DANZONE does.......... OxFest 2012 

Who would have thought that a day spent bag packing at Sainsburys for fund raising, would lead to an opportunity for Danzone to perform on the main stage at this year's OxFest festival on 13th July! We had a fantastic day in the baking summer heat enjoying everything this event has to offer. BIG BIG thanks to the Uffington Village Committee who kindly hired us their mini-bus for the day. The students (and parents) enjoyed many artists and performers, and were a little starstruck to meet Josh aka 'Remedy Sounds'!

DANZONE does..... The New Theatre Oxford

June 2013 - Wow! what an experience, definitely the most challenging event Danzone have ever undertaken. 76 dancers aged between 6-16 years old, 8 chaperones and 2 teachers all headed off to the New Theatre Oxford. The day started at 9am, and after 8 hours of hair crimping, make up and hairspray the dancers hit the stage. Months of hard work paid off when the dancers performed and did themselves proud. The amazing and loyal band of parents, grandparents, family and friends who watched will take away many happy memories.

'The Stars' in Our Eyes Mardi Gras 2012 at Sadler's Wells Theatre!

On Friday 13th April DANZONE took part in this prestigous event on the big stage and under the bright lights at this famous theatre venue in London's West End. Despite getting lost and arriving late (well it was Friday 13th!) all students, chaperones, helpers, family and friends had a fantastic day out. The students really rose to the occasion and every one of them gave everything they could, the performance was fantastic! Miss Clare was overwhelmed with pride and most parents had tears in their eyes!
