Who We Are

A Family of Artists - with Passion for Dance

Kate Kearns

Artistic Director

"I am passionate about dance and firmly believe that there is a dancer in everyone. I love working with young dancers and nurturing their talent. The success of EEDC over the last 10 years is inspiring and I can't wait to see where we go next!"

Since 2018 I have been a member of the National Association of Teachers of Dancing (NATD). We introduced the Contemporary dance syllabus to our repertoire of classes in January 2019. Our first exams in December 2019 were hugely successful and we look forward to more success with the NATD.

"I love the impact the arts can have on audiences and communities. Whether it's for fitness or performance, I think dance is so diverse, there is something for everyone. Teaching youth dance allows me to help dancers discover their interests and strengths while sharing creative ideas."
