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 at our studio in Beckenham, Kent. We offer annual outings to the Royal Opera House, hold workshops and other dance related events.
Adult Ballet Tuesdays 8-9pm
Dust of your shoes, dig out your leotards and dance! 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 enthusiastic, energetic group in Beckenham. Ballet class with a live pianist, total joy! Come along one Tuesday if you want to get fit, start a new hobby, or rediscover the wonderful world of ballet. We just love to dance!
