About Italia Conti

OUR Facilities

In 2022, Italia Conti’s 111th year, we moved into our purpose-built building in Woking where our new era of talent is nurtured

  • I’m a dancer in LA and can’t keep up with my peers on how often they take dance classes. This channel has been so helpful for me to keep up my training. Thank you for sharing this with the world. I feel like we are all dancing together even though we are all doing this at different times and in different spaces. 🖤
