The roots of Chatsworth Dance Centre were established in 1989 when Ann Atkinson (see "Our Teachers") established the AVA Dance Academy in Harrogate. Over the subsequent few years, Ann successfully built up the Academy to the point where she acquired Chatsworth Studios as her base in 1996.

Over the last 17 years, Chatsworth Studios have helped over 1,500 students achieve over 4,500 IDTA exam passes in Ballet, Modern Jazz and Tap as well as provide facilities and tuition for Freestyle and Musical Theatre.

As well as achieving great success in exams (many passes highly commended or honours), 8 highly acclaimed shows have been performed at the H.I.C. and the Royal Hall. Our next one is scheduled for spring 2016.
