Revolution Dance Academy offers recreational dance classes based in Gartcosh for kids age 3+.

Revolution Dance Academy (RDA) was previously known as 'Revolution Dance & Theatre Academy' but was taken over & re branded by Maxine & Mhairi in early 2021. 

Both Maxine & Mhairi are professionally trained dancers & qualified dance teachers that are still currently performing in the performing arts industry. 

At RDA we hope to give the dancers enough training, performance experience and guidance over the years to prepare them for further dance education if they wish ie College Training/Teaching, while still keeping it fun for those that participate as a hobby. 


We aim to build confidence in our dancers and provide a fun/professional environment for everyone that comes through our door. 


Here at RDA we offer opportunities to take part in  Summer Camps, Fun Days & School trips to the theatre etc as well as bringing in some of the best performers/teachers in the industry as guest teachers/workshops.
