Adore Dance London provides fun, friendly & welcoming dance classes for East London
Inspiring the Love of Dance
Adore Dance London is one of East London's leading dancing schools offering dance lessons for Adults & Children in East London.
Through our mission, vision & values, Adore Dance is committed to creating an inclusive atmosphere, offering the same level of professional training as some of the most prestigious schools, without the elitist atmosphere which can put many dancers off; especially those who do not see themselves fitting the mould of a typical dancer.
Under the guidance and expertise of Principal Teacher, Connor Taylor—a world professional dancer turned fully IDTA-qualified dance teacher—Adore Dance is one of the few schools which are led by a professional dancer with dance teaching qualifications, meaning that all students, regardless of ability, can guarantee the highest quality teaching.
The emphasis is always on running fun & social classes, whilst still maintaining a high standard of technique. With our small class sizes, we encourage dancers to subtly push themselves and develop their confidence through industry-leading teaching & training—making new friends along the way!
Our Mission, Vision & Values
Adore Dance London’s mission, vision & values are not just words on a page - they are reflected in the actions and behaviours of everyone in our team, as well as, how we encourage students (and their parents/carers).

From the youngest dancer to the most experienced teacher, We have a responsibility to pass the ‘baton’ of inspiration, enthusiasm & passion on to the next generation:
Our actions & creativity today reflect in the future dancers of tomorrow
We understand success does not come overnight and we use the challenges & disappointments that are natural in dance to build confidence, leadership & adventure:
Our tenacity & hard work today, become tomorrow’s graceful willpower
We foster a culture of compassion, empathy & fun to create lifelong friendships through making & accomplishing goals together:
Our welcoming attitude ensures there is a place to dance for everybody regardless ethnicity, race, gender, religion, sexuality, or disability.
Meet The Team
BA(Hons), LIDTA, AIDTA
Connor fell in love with dancing at the age of 8 at a local dance school in Doncaster, South Yorkshire. He soon started full-time training from just age 10 at Northern Ballet Academy, Leeds, where Connor formed his foundation & discipline to the art. At 16, he received a place to study a BA(Hons) degree in Professional Dance & Performance at the prestigious Central School of Ballet, London where he graduated in 2015. It was then he toured nationally working with globally renowned choreographers to perform across the UK, including New Adventures/Matthew Bourne, The Royal Opera House, Sadlers Wells & more. Then went on to spend his last year of professional dancing at Alberta Ballet, Canada.
In 2016, Connor moved from the performing world into teaching, running Ballet & Jazz lessons for Adults & Children at Margaret Preedy Dance Studios in Maidstone, Kent. It was here Connor pursued his professional teaching qualifications through the International Dance Teachers Association (IDTA) in Ballet, Modern Jazz, Contemporary Jazz, Freestyle & Theatre Craft.
In 2021, Connor was thrilled to bring his wealth of experience to East London with the formation of Adore Dance London. Connor now teaches over 200 students each week including both group and private classes for everyday beginner dancers to professional Royal Ballet artists.
Class Administrator & Co-Founder
As a third-generation dance studio owner, Joe grew up in a Dance school, but avoided the dancing itself altogether! Instead fascinated by the business side of dance.
As well as joining the tap class on Tuesday nights, Joe leads business operations for Adore Dance London and supports the teachers with the administration of the classes, so will probably be the one sending you the emails with the details.
Outside of dance, Joe runs Youth Clubs across East London, is a School Governor and works for a management consultancy.
