Richmond Dance Centre was established 1st May 1984 by Maureen Mundell and Christine Hepworth. In 2003, after many successful years in the Garden Village in Richmond the Dance Centre relocated to it’s current premises in Scorton. At the end of 2011 Christine Hepworth retired and Maureen Mundell became sole proprietor. After 52 years of teaching Maureen Mundell retired at the end of December 2020. The school is now run by former pupil and RAD registered teacher Laura Sayer.

The Dance Centre has seen many students pass through their doors over the past 36 years, with many going on to full time training and several pursuing careers in dance.
