About the Dance School

The Linzi Doherty School of Dancing started out in 1996 when we took over existing classes. Linzi moved to Australia a few years later and Kate has been managing the dancing school since then. In 2012 we changed our name to Kate Doherty Schoool of Dance. Linzi regularly keeps in touch and is proud of our dancers' continuing achievements.

Our Teachers

Qualified by the British Association of Teachers of Dancing, the teachers have Associate and Membership certificates including Stage, Majorette, Cheerleading (Dance Cheer Poms) and Freestyle as well as YMCA Fitness to Music.

Having recently taken teacher's classes in ballet, we are now also able to offer ballet classes to our pupils in addition to the existing timetable.

Our combined experience and dedication makes the dance school what it is though. While we aim for the highest standards, we also make the classes fun and inspiring for the pupils, encouraging them to grow in confidence and ability.

The dancing school has supported various charities including Greenburn School, Children's Hospice Association Scotland and the Simon Community charity for homeless people. Proceeds from our dancing shows regularly go to the Kilbryde Hospice Appeal.
