About Us



jo and abOver the years, Dance Crazy Studios has built up a reputation as one of the UK’s largest and most successful dance schools. It all began in 2002 when Principal Joanne Crane set up a small, weekly class at a local community centre. As it became apparent the school was growing in recognition and popularity, Joanne joined forces with Principal Abbie Neeson going from just one weekly class to several classes in different areas.






It was in 2009 that our luxurious, purpose built studio was established. Our surround sound systems, floor length mirrors and custom spring floors mean that we are not only able to provide tuition of a world class degree but we are able to provide it in a state of the art facility. Since 2009 Dance Crazy Studios has produced some of Europe’s finest Latin dancers in both couples and formation categories boasting over twenty Regional Championship titles and seven British Championship titles.

Just recently our very own ‘Ballroom Boys’ featured in a Channel 4 Documentry. The boys were followed by TV cameras over a number of months as they continued to prepare for the most prestigious of Dance Competitions. Their hard work and determination to achieve was broadcast for everyone to see. Each of these boys started their journey in one of our weekly social classes!


Dance Crazy continues to have remarkable success in the competitive industry of dancing. However, this would not be possible without ensuring our social classes were well structured and filled with content that can give children the ability to progress to whichever level they wish. As a school we pride ourselves on having extremely enthusiastic, knowledgeable staff who have a genuine passion to get the best out of our students. Whether they decide to keep their dancing as a fun, social activity or whether they wish to become the next British Champion, the sky is the limit at Dance Crazy!
