About Us

OUR HISTORY

Welcome to Sue Hill Dance, a legacy that began in 1982 when Sue Hill established the foundation of our vibrant dance school. With a passion for nurturing talent, Sue Hill Dance has grown to become a hub of creativity, teaching over 400 pupils each week in a variety of Ballet, Tap, Modern Jazz, Street, Freestyle, Musical Theatre and Contemporary classes. In 2005, we proudly expanded, opening our dedicated premises along with Bath Dancewear on Fortescue Road. From the tiniest dancers at 18 months old to spirited adults, our diverse dance classes cater to all ages. Currently, we host an impressive array of 49 classes per week at the esteemed Victoria Hall in Radstock. The echoes of our students’ successes reverberate across the UK, Europe, and America, as they grace stages as professional dancers and actors. Sue’s dedication took a new form in 2012 when she founded the BDC Theatre College along with her son George Hill who trained at The Royal Ballet School and has performed across the world in various productions and companies.  BDC Theatre College is a haven for aspiring performing arts students. Our college, nestled within the vibrant heart of Victoria Hall since 2013, has attracted talent from every corner of the country. Many students choose to call our area home, drawn by the promise of exceptional training. We take immense pride in our graduates’ achievements with the majority of them securing coveted places at some of the world’s most prestigious performing arts institutions. Among our esteemed alumni is none other than Maisie Williams, renowned for her role in Game of Thrones. Join us at Sue Hill Dance and BDC Theatre College, where legacies are born, talent thrives, and dreams take centre stage.
