Welcome to Laton Ash Dance Centre


Laton Ash is Hastings longest established Dance School (1974) owned and run by Mrs Pauline Ash (Fellow & international Examiner ISTD). 

We have classes in ISTD Ballet, Tap & Modern up to Advanced 2 level, also a Classical Greek and Stretch class, and Body Conditioning.
We offer Adult Classes in  Ballet and Tap during the day as well as evenings.

Miss Pauline is also a licensee for the RAD Silver Swans Programme – Classical Ballet classes for the more mature student, which are held in the mornings. 

For our youngest students, we have our Little Steps class on a Saturday morning for 2 & 3 year olds, who can then progress to our Bigger Steps class. 
Whatever your age/ability, Miss Pauline and her expertly trained team would love to welcome you to Laton Ash.

About Laton Ash Dance Centre

Laton Ash Dance Centre is the family friendly dance school.
Since opening on the 1st April 1974 many generations have passed through the front door of number 18.
Our ethos has always been to instill a love of dance in all our pupils whatever their aspirations.
As the studios are in Miss Pauline’s home, we don’t share space with any other organisations.
The only access is by ringing the front door bell.
Should you be delayed your child can wait safely with the teachers.
Both Miss Pauline, Miss Donna & Miss Sophia are highly experienced and fully qualified teachers who trained initially with the wonderful and divinely eccentric Miss Phyllis Godfrey. 
Miss Pauline went on to train at the Royal Ballet School and the Benesh Institute of Choreology & is an International Tap and Modern Examiner for the I.S.T.D.
