The Benson Stage Academy provides dance classes in a friendly atmosphere, by highly qualified teachers. Your budding dancer will learn to express themselves with confidence in all forms of dance. All classes are designed to improve your child’s posture, health, and confidence. We offer tuition in Ballet, Tap, Modern, Cheer dance, Freestyle, Acro and Strictly Solo.
Founded in 1945 by the late Miss Mamie Benson we are proud to be the longest established dance school in Scarborough. Our studio can be found on commercial street, it is situated behind the Commercial Pub next to Crown Glass Glazing.
We are excited to announce that we are now Acrobatic Arts Certified Studio!
We usually do two shows a year. Our annual whole school show is held every March at The YMCA Scarborough. From the proceeds of this show we make donations to charities and projects chosen by the pupils such as Sands, Alzheimer’s Society and the Melanoma Fund.
Our other show is usually in September. This is performed by pupils who chose to attend classes though the summer holidays. The proceeds from this show go towards the schools wardrobe fund, which provides costumes for our dancers.
