The McAlpine Dance Studio opened in Stockwell in 1972 and moved to Longfield Hall in 1993. Donald and his wife Phyllida, having danced for many years with the Royal Ballet and London's Festival Ballet (now called English National Ballet), wanted to pass on their knowledge and passion for dance.
The School offers classes in a wide variety of dance genres, as well as singing and drama, all with highly qualified teachers. It currently has more than 150 pupils ranging in age from infants under five to senior students in their eighties.
Students participate in regular performances at Longfield Hall and in local community arts productions. McAlpine Dance Studio also stages a major show biennially.
“Stage Club” is a very popular feature of the School, encouraging an all round musical theatre approach. The success of the Saturday Club has led to the creation of Stage Clubs on Thursdays and, most recently, on Wednesdays for younger students.
The School provides instruction to students at all levels from hobby to R.A.D. and I.S.T.D. Certificate standards and Spanish Dance Society examinations. It is dedicated above all to the appreciation, beauty and craft of dance and music.
