Welcome to Tiptoe School of Performing Arts
We are re-opening September 7th, 2020
Tiptoe School of Performing Arts began in Sinfin in April 1990 with approximately 70 pupils. The addition of classes at Mickleover in 1992 incorporated classes both at the Memorial Hall and the Community Centre in Mickleover.
The school has grown to over 400 pupils from the age of 3 upward since 1990. Due to the size of the school, we moved to City of Derby Academy in 2009. In 2014 we acquired the Emily Rose School of Dance which means we also offer classes in Allestree.

What's it all for?
During the year we provide a number of exam sessions offering IDTA in Ballet, Tap, Modern, Jazz, Freestyle, Street, Acro, Musical Theatre and Trinity in Drama – and we hold an annual presentation to recognise the achievements of all our students.
As well as staging an annual show each summer, we also perform a drama production, which incorporates singing, acting and dancing.
