Ballet is one of the most demanding but also one of the most enjoyable dance forms ever created, providing benefits such as good posture, discipline and confidence building. We run Royal Academy of Dance Graded and Vocational classes encouraging the joy of movement in children from 3 years of age. We offer annual outings to the Royal Opera House, hold workshops and other dance related events.

We are hosting a photographic session at the school on Saturday 25th October. We have two professional photographers from Ashwood & Stanton taking individual photographs at the school. We are now fully booked and looking forward to a really busy day. Those attending make sure you're with us in plenty of time for your slot.
Pre School Ballet Monday & Saturday.
We hold classes starting at 3 years of age for pre school ballet on Monday at 3.15-4.00pm or Saturday at 2.00-2.45pm. It is an excellent introduction into the structure of ballet lessons, lots of imagination and themes are involved in the class, designed so that they are performing ballet exercises in a manner that is fun and stimulating. Children may attend a trial lesson on one of these days, please contact the school for further information.
Adult Ballet Tuesdays 8-9pm
Adult ballet is a great way to get toned, improve posture, coordination and connect with the inner dancer! If you danced as a child or student and are keen to dust of your ballet shoes again do come and join our friendly energetic group in Beckenham.
The confirmed date for exams this coming term is Friday 21st November.Our examiner is Miss Purvis. The times will be found on the notice board.
Royal Ballet Company class.
A group from the school visited the Royal Opera House to watch company class on the 3rd October. This proved an inspirational event in which we were all amazed by Principal Sarah Lamb and her flexibility, Steven McRae and his turns. The jumps...no one individual can be singled out, but stunning.
Congratulations to the Royal Academy of Dance Examination students who took grades One, Six and Seven in the Summer 2014 session. All were successful, 70% awarded Distinction. Congratulations to Alexia T and Pascale K who performed with the English Youth Ballet at the Churchill Theatre in August 2014. Well done to Hannah H who is studying for the second year as a Junior Associate at the Royal Ballet School. Anyone planning to visit the Theatre in London this autumn can i suggest you try to catch Kelsey CS in the Lion King or Hannah H in Matilda.
