Welcome to Lawrence Dance Academy


We offer professional dance tuition in Highland , Scottish National, Ballet, Tap, Disco/Freestyle, Cheer, Theory/Teacher Training, Choreography, and Mini Movers for the 2/3 year olds.


***No face-to-face classes are currently being held due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Online classes are now being conducted via Zoom – Please head to the ‘Contact Us’ page for contact details to arrange this. It is unknown at this time when face-to-face classes will recommence but keep checking in for developments and updates.***


At the Academy we are fully committed to the art of dance. We work hard to introduce and establish just the right amount of self-expression, discipline and passion in each of our students. Whether a student is dancing for fun and exercise or planning to enter the arts on a professional level, we are here to guide you along the way.  We encourage all of our dancers to sit UKA exams, including SQA accredited exams, giving any pupil the help and support they may require to progress through all the examination levels.

Our goal is to allow each dancer to experience the elements of dance: confidence, co-ordination, creativity, grace, musicality, rhythm, self-esteem, technique, an appreciation for music and dance, and above all, FUN!

Based in Peterhead, but with classes all across Aberdeenshire, the Lawrence Dance Academy is a friendly and welcoming family run business and has been running for over 40 years.


Over 40 Years of Excellence!


The Lawrence Dance Academy teach Highland, Scottish National, Ballet, Tap, Disco/Freestyle, Cheer, Theory, Choreography, Professional classes and Mini Movers for the 2/3 year olds.

The Academy participates every year in the International Gathering of Scottish Highland Dance at Disneyland Paris, an event which Academy Director, Rhona, was a key figure in creating, and all pupils are welcome to go and take part in this incredible event.

Many of our senior dancers are invited to participate and perform in international tattoo events including Edinburgh’s spectacular and tattoos in Germany, Belgium and Australia.

The Lawrence Dance Academy has produced countless champions, pre-champions and professionals, who have attained judging qualifications, examiner certification and teaching degrees.

The Academy has also participated in The Highlands & Islands Festival for choreography in Oban, and had winners in both group and solo sections.

Such is the standing of the Academy’s teachers, that they are regularly asked to travel worldwide to teach, judge and lecture.

There are no auditions held to join our Academy as all children of any nationality, age and ability are welcome to come along to our classes. Please call or email us for details. New students are welcome at any time.

Join us and learn Highland , Scottish National, Ballet, Tap, Disco/Freestyle, Cheer, Theory and Choreography in Professional classes or the very popular Mini Movers for the 2/3 year olds.  Although our dance studio is based in Peterhead we teach from various locations in the Aberdeenshire area:

Whether it be for fun or to get fit, you can learn the dances, socialise, make new friends as well as keeping fit or compete at championships, or perform at highland games…


As well as teaching dancing we also perform regularly for the public at displays, galas, fetes, charity events and other community venues.
