The Miles School of Dancing Professional Dance Teachers

Raymond Miles and son Richard Miles together run the
Miles School of Dancing, founded in 1981 by Raymond and wife Joyce. Our methods of teaching incorporate classic traditional values as well as the modern styles that bring us up-to-date with the current trends in the dancing world.

Raymond Miles


Raymond has been dancing since the age of 6 and has been a Professional Teacher now for almost 50 years! Highly experienced and knowledgeable, Raymond not only trains students from scratch, but also trains and has trained a wide variety of dancers for their Professional qualifications. An examiner with the ISTD since 1994, Raymond’s internationally renowned reputation means that he has been invited to examine and coach not just here in the UK, but students in Hong Kong, China, Korea and Barbados. He has also lectured for the ISTD and other societies on many occasions.

Richard has been dancing since he was 7 years old and has been a Professional Teacher since 1998. With a long competitive background, Richard’s passion is training his pupils to dance with style and individuality. Whether it’s children or adults, Richard’s belief is that it’s not always about being the best, but being the best that you can be.
