The Story so far...

The Katie Philpott School of Dance was established in 2000 by its namesake
to celebrate and share her passion for dance.

KPSD NEWS

Our dancers love appearing in local community events and we've even been dancing in the streets this summer. 

So far we've danced at the Upper Hopton Village Fete, Battyeford School and Roberttown Pre-School Summer Fairs, the Wellhouse Moravian Church and Mirfield Arts Festival Carnival Parade, which was great fun!

Catch us next dancing in the main arena at the Mirfield Show on Sunday August 19th.

Don't forget, there's a new upload of more than 160 newly-released photos from our show CENTURY (Please read the T&Cs) and we are launching a new ISTD Bronze Jazz Award in September, Email This email address is being protected from spambots.
