About us

The studio was set up in 2005 by award-winning Emma Brewer, running only a handful of classes. Today, we run over 30 classes a week, with a variety of skilled teachers, a host of wonderful dancers and singers, and we put on a fantastic show every other year.


Ballet, tap and jazz dance, bootcamp and fitness classes, choir and musical theatre, we have classes for everyone whatever your level, age and ability.


We also offer classes that have pieces that go into performances such as Musical Theatre who recently performed “A Slice of Musical Theatre” as well as Company ballet, Company Tap and Company jazz who perform at Rhoda McGaw. Contemporary classes on Monday nights also offer performance opportunities with Dance Woking.

First Dance Studio will return to the stage in 2024 for their show ‘Take The Lead’ at the Rhoda McGaw. Over 15 performance pieces will be in the show.
