Whilst word has got around our latest venue The Sidings Community Centre has taken off brilliantly with nursery age children especially keen to join in. We also have classes in two vibrant studios in St Andrews Frognal Lane, as well as West Hampstead Community Hall just off Mill Lane and our very popular Free Church Hall studio in Hampstead Garden Suburb.
We specialise in children’s ballet following the RAD syllabus. Our highly qualified teachers, often with two working together, delivering inspiring classes, and encouraging the love of dance. Those doing exams have all excelled, without exception and by popular demand we have introduced young adult ballet classes at St Andrews, a great venue with space and freedom to express yourself.
Our professionally staged children’s ballet productions are spectacular, incomparable in quality, style and content making life long family memories for young and old.
We are proud to announce that many students have progressed onto the associate programmes, or full time ballet schools at Royal Ballet’s White Lodge, Elmhurst, Tring Academy of Performing Arts, London Studio Centre, London School of Contemporary Dance and Arts Educational.
Many of our dancers have been accepted into their chosen secondary schools through dance scholarships, delighting parents and staff alike. We are very proud of our student’s determination to succeed.
Those achieving Grade 6 and above, gain UCAS points towards their application to their chosen university.
I hope you enjoy browsing our website, the shows we have done, the girls and boys, in class, our very special teachers and don’t miss my short films which we are told have been very helpful as well as entertaining!
