About Excel Dance

After having trained and competed in dance competitions all over the UK for over 22 years, Sharnie Richards launched Excel Dance in 2008 with just one street dance class on a Saturday morning in Beighton. Since then, Excel Dance has grown to teach over 250 students in a full time dance academy open 6 days a week. The fiery passion and unfaltering enthusiasm of Sharnie and the Excel Dance coaches is what has driven that growth and what makes Excel Dance the UK's leading dance academy.

Spanning the whole spectrum of dance styles and techniques, Excel Dance is perfect for those wanting to get into dancing but who don't know what style. Street dance, cheer dance and commercial dance are the three main styles taught and you're sure to find your favourite in one of our classes.

People of all ages and backgrounds are welcome at Excel Dance. We have classes for toddlers, children, teens and adults. No previous experience is necessary and we will provide ongoing and consistent support along the journey.

Whether you're dancing to get fit or dancing because you love it, you'll find your place at Excel Dance.
