MPA Dance (Milly Performance Academy) has been operating for over 15 years based in Northumberland. Relocating in October 2020 to Earth Balance, Bedlington, our stunning new self contained studio has a spectacular dance space, outdoor space and our very own kitchen for snacks and refreshments.

We are incredibly proud of the diversity our academy has. We run classes from Ballet and Jazz to Contemporary and Freestyle any everything in between for children aged 3 years. Over the past 15 years the academy has grown incredibly and we now have a number of our dance instructors getting involved with community groups and schools, delivering dance, performance and educational programmes across the North East. 


At MPA we are a family; we allow people to step away from everyday life and take time to reflect, we allow everyone to become 'Their own creation' - every person who walks through our doors can be part of something special and feel included.

    Please make sure you read all information and students will be doing show dances as awards. Please RSVP by 29th January to let me know if your child is taking exams. Thanks Cheryl


My son has attended classes here for 6 years and I have seen him grow in so many ways. The lessons that are learnt  here are invaluable in dance and life. Thank you to everyone who has been part of his dance journey so far.


What an amazing dance school. I was at a show at the Blyth Regetta and half way  through a dance number there was a power cut. I . couldn't believe the professionalism these dancers showed. They carried on without music. The crowd then cheered and clapped a beat until the number finished. Fantastic group of dancers. Well done!


Just to share a little of your Milly stardust in the world!! My daughter was in her schools song and dance evening and did a stunning solo section. A testament once  again to the Milly magic. She's buzzing!
