– the Ballet Academy Terms

The Ballet Academy Terms

With three full terms, classes are held after school on weekdays and at weekends in Danceworks beautiful studios close to Bond Street tube. In addition there are performance rehearsal classes on Saturdays and Sundays in preparation for our Youth Ballet Company professional theatrical productions, affording the opportunity for our students to work and perform to the public (click to view previous productions). Additional classes are available at Danceworks every week for students who wish to train more intensively. Private classes are also available on request with Academy teachers. These can be one-to-one, or in small groups of up to four.

We provide personalised individual timetables for each student depending on the age, and level of the student.

I love all of the teachers! They are all very knowledgeable and helpful, friendly and supportive. Every one of them has something different to offer and that is really wonderful.
