About DCA

At Dance Craze Academy we nurture the children’s enthusiasm and passion. In dance, drama and singing children will grow in confidence, have improved memory skills, greater flexibility, grace, spacial awareness and be treated like a star!

 Welcome to Dance Craze Academy!

Dance Craze Academy  is a performing arts school offering classes in Pest and Buda.  We have been established for over 20 years.  

Our school specialises in a range of dance, drama and musical  theatre classes and workshops for all ages and abilities.  Our dance department  includes Tap, Ballet, Modern/Contemporary, Jazz, Theatre Dance, Popdance, Groovechild, Acro-dance as well as classes for toddlers and adults.  Our drama/musical theatre department has really bloomed in the last few years:  alongside performing in our school edition musicals and variety shows, children may audition to be in our full version of Peter Pan the British Musical. 

We offer summer camps, birthday parties and private lessons (wedding dance, choreography for a talent show, preparation for dance exams).

Our experienced, friendly and highly dedicated teachers all love what they do.  We all truly hope to pass on our love of the performing arts to all our students, regardless whether the pupil is taking exams or coming for fun and fitness.

We welcome all students to come and visit us , and try classes before commitment.  Please feel free to contact us at any time and we will be only too pleased to help.


Meet The Teachers

Sandra Knibbs
DCA Creator | Teacher (AIDTA, APTD) | Choreographer

Over 20 years ago I started teaching a handful of eager children and thankfully it just took off and grew from there! Performing arts and being with children is the lifestyle I dreamed of. I just continuously strive to bring the best I can to Dance Craze.  To help children achieve and grow in confidence – to offer every opportunity to perform and grow as a dancer and as a person – to  explore all the benefits performing arts bring

I am a qualified teacher with the International Dance Teachers’ Association, The Professional Teachers of Dancing and a qualified nursery nurse. I have training in RAD and the ISTD method.  I have won scholarships to train, and after I obtained my qualifications I took the opportunity to go to South Africa for a semester to further train and teach. 

Every year I continue to update my dance qualifications and knowledge through private tuition from IDTA Examiners, and professionals in the field. 

Susie Lerch
Dance Teacher | Choreographer

I lived in England and have taught in international environments for many years. I was mad about dance ever since I started as a child. By the time I was in my teens, I spent every day after school and all weekends in the dance studio!

I trained in many different disciplines and I am also a qualified pilates teacher. I have taught for many schools including 3 years at the French School of Budapest where I was in charge of choreographing for shows, street jazz, and ballroom classes.

I joined DCA in 2014. I host the birthday parties, teach lots of different classes and I also teach on camp. We make a great team!
