We’ve embraced the unconventional in recent weeks to run our classes online. It’s been a steep learning curve, but we’re so happy to see our students dancing and staying positive during these challenging times.
Monday (20th April) marks the start of our first, fully-online term and we can’t wait to welcome our students to the ‘Skylark Virtual Studio’, with many exciting lessons and projects to come.
a newPerspectiveTo the Art of Ballet
Introducing a new approach to teaching the art of ballet; fusing the rigour of the renowned Russian Vaganova system with the inclusive methods of the British Ballet Organisation.
Offering classes from Primary through to Advanced level, our school seeks to bring the very best out of all its students, while enjoying their learning journey.
We believe that these high-expectations can only be met by having high teaching standards. Our principal Miss Anya, is an award-winning teacher and former professional dancer, who has over 20 years of dance experience with extensive pedagogic training.
All of our teaching staff share a professional dance background, many have performed in the most demanding principal roles ballet has to offer. Our teachers all espouse the ethos of matching high technical standards with a modern educational approach… while still having fun of course!
