Ballet classes are taught by the principal, Miss Nina Salmon, a fully qualified RAD teacher.  Private coaching is also offered, by arrangement, for exams, auditions and competitions.

Classes are fun and varied and cover the RAD syllabus work as well as story telling for the younger ones and strengthening exercises for older children.  All children and adults are taught as individuals with different paths and abilities so everyone flourishes to their full potential.
