About Us

ECD Vision - Angelo Ruggieri

As a dance college, we build beyond students’ technique in dance. The founder of ECD, Angelo Ruggieri, pioneers in producing novelty shows around the world, offering students the opportunity of real stage experiences. International show production is the DNA of the school and is designed so that our students grow in the art of performance in a way that no other school can offer...

We believe everyone is born with inner strength, confidence and aspiration to fulfil their dreams. Angelo, the founder of ECD, lives out this belief himself. Pursuing his passion for dancing despite resistance from family, he persisted in putting himself into a rigorous and top-standard ballet training environment and was later hand-picked by prestigious European dance companies to perform regularly on National stages across Europe. It goes without saying that excellence in dancing is in his blood.

Delivering an exceptional quality of dance & performing arts training: ECD knows that the best way to prepare talents for the world of dance, is to combine uncompromising technique with real stage experiences.

We teach and encourage students to persist and continuously push their own individual level of performing in a friendly, fun and humble environment. The academy commits itself to produce shows in London, Italy and China; providing students with opportunities to take part in international productions.

Regardless of age, gender and race, we invite and support people to dream and live out their passion for dancing and performing.

Come and let us help you live out your dreams. We believe in you, and the passion inside of you - do you?



“ECD gave me so much: a dancer’s vocabulary, working knowledge of steps that actually come up in auditions and most of all a passion for self-expression through movements.”
