Caroline and Alison have worked successfully together for many years. The school was established in 1995 and both Caroline and Alison are RAD registered teachers, having passed the Professional Dancers Teaching Diploma (PDTD). They are both married and each has three children.

Ballet is an art form that encourages good posture and teaches a child discipline, co-ordination, strength, control and also gives them confidence. We wish to encourage musicality and the enjoyment of dance and movement in a happy, caring, focused and professional atmosphere. We are committed to achieving results of the highest possible standard and inspiring all our pupils to reach their full potential. 

All members of the teaching staff hold an Enhanced Disclosure CRB Certificate. We also have a qualified First Aider.

Royal Academy of Dance examinations are offered at the discretion of the Principals.
