Quality, professional, friendly dance classes led by fully qualified, experienced dancer and ISTD teacher.
Specialising in Theatre Dance styles
Deborah Hoskins Dance was established in 2016 out of a passion to provide children and adults with quality, professional training in dance.
Based in the Farsley, Pudsey area of Leeds, Principal Deborah strives to offer students of all ages and abilities a solid dance education in a nurturing, supportive learning environment.
Classes are suitable for the recreational student as well as those those who would like to pursue a more focused, vocational approach, looking towards a career in the industry. Children are taught the ISTD syllabus in Imperial Classical Ballet, Modern Theatre and Tap as well as Contemporary, Jazz, Lyrical and Musical Theatre Dance classes and workshops. Weekly adult classes run in Ballet and Jazz and regular beginners courses are also offered to novices. Dance is a fun way to make friends, get fit, flexible and strengthen the body while training the mind on perfecting a discipline.
About the Principal
Deborah started dancing when she was 5 years old at the Willow Tree Centre of Dance and Performing Arts in Devon. Her love of dance took an exciting turn when she was offered a scholarship to attend the Urdang Academy full-time lower school in London at the age of 14. Continuing into the upper school, Deborah received professional training for 5 years in the heart of Covent Garden studying Classical Ballet, Pointe, Contemporary, Tap, Modern Theatre, Jazz, Street Jazz, Pas de Deux and Musical Theatre; all taught by some of the most prestigious choreographers, teachers and directors in the industry.
Since then Deborah has performed and taught in London and, after a move to West Yorkshire in 2015, teaches freelance across Leeds and set up Deborah Hoskins Dance in January 2016. Deborah is a fully qualified teacher with the ISTD and loves to share her passion for dance with both children and adults.

Deborah has reignited by love of dancing and attending her classes is a joy every week. I would recommend anyone interested in dancing to try her adult classes (from beginner to experienced)
For any parent wanting their little ones to start dancing, I can think of no better place to start dancing
My little girl has been attending Deborah’s ballet School now for a few months. She is very enthusiastic about attending her lessons. Her whole outlook on life, and confidence levels have improved dramatically.
Deborah is a fantastic dance teacher who enjoys what she does. She is a lovely lady and knows how to get down to the children’s level. My little girl is very fond of her. She is very enthusiastic in her work and lessons she provides to the children. You can tell she genuinely loves what she does. I would find it difficult to find another dance School that provides what Deborah has to offer....
...Best choice we made moving dance Schools. Thank you!

In two years Deborah has taken our girl from a shy little lady who didn’t like an audience to today performing in the UK Dance Class Championships. Can’t say enough good things, thank you for everything you do for your pupils. L loves her dancing, she’d come every day if she could!
