We are so excited to announce that our 2020 Summer school will be held in our brand new studio at Poppleton in York.


It is our true pleasure to announce that Star of the West End, Layton Williams will be joining us to give every dancer signed up to Summer school at GDA York a workshop to remember from his hit musical 'Everybody's talking about Jamie'. We are so lucky to have such an incredible talent join us live in the studio and we know what a huge hit he is going to be with everybody. 

Amongst his starring lead role in Everybody's talking about Jamie, Layton's credits are quite the list, including, Hairspray, Rent, Billy Elliot, Kiss me Kate as well as lead acting roles in Benidorm, Bad Education amongst more..

We do our absolute best at Gemini Dance Academy York to bring the very best experiences and learning to our Dancers and bringing Layton in to give his wealth of experience to our young dancers really is a special moment for us all.

Fabulous news that star of stage and screen Georgie Leatherland has kindly agreed to come to our studio and deliver Workshops for everyone attending our Summer school! Georgie is best known for her lead role in Cats playing Rumpleteazer  and has appeared in both Mamma Mia films as well as the Mamma Mia Uk Tour. Her vast experience and knowledge of dance, stage and screen is sure to bring that added extra to our summer school of 2020. We cant wait to welcome you Georgie! 

Due to Current restrictions surrounding the Covid-19 Pandemic we have had no option but to completely work outside the box to ensure our dancers still benefit whole heartedly from a Summer school of dance inside our studio.

In normal circumstances, longer (but fewer) days would be the normal, larger class sizes would also be factored in however for safety all round we must adhere to our Risk Assessment and government guidelines therefore our schedule will be as follows:

Our summer school will be split into three groups (Timings above) with a maximum occupancy of 10 per group

(We intend to maximise this at 8 with 2 reserves per group)

The same group of Dancers will attend at their allotted time by Group (As above) and are not permitted to switch between groups.

Summer school will consist of 4 days (3 hours) and Final day (1 Hour)

Dancers may choose which week they intend to participate (Subject to availability)

10% Discount will apply if Dancers choose to attend both weeks

Our Summer school is very much all things DANCE!


Body Conditioning-Stretch and Technique

Workshops-Choreography-Filmed Performances

and More......

Beginners, Open and Accomplished are all welcome

(Please book early, Due to Covid-19 restrictions there are only 48 - 60 places available across both weeks in total).

All dancers must be pre-booked in advance. No on the day admissions will be permitted.

Parents/Guardians will be requested to complete a short admission form in advance.
