“Pourest thy full heart. In profuse strains
of unpremeditated art .“‘Ode to a Skylark’, Percy Shelley

OurHistory & BackgroundFrom the Ground UpEST. 2016

‘Skylark School of Dance’ was founded by Anna Zhavoronkova in 2016, from humble beginnings; initially run as a once weekly class with a handful of students at the Bromley Civic Centre, taught while Anna juggled her hectic teaching roles at two other schools and looking after a toddler.

Things moved on surprisingly quickly and the school grew at a dramatic pace to become a full-time venture. Within a few months of opening, Skylark School of Dance was established enough to join the Churchill Theatre’s Creative Learning department (offering fantastic development opportunities to students) and now offers multiple classes per week, with a dedicated support team and growing every day.

These achievements wouldn’t be possible, were it not for our wonderful students, “the skylarks”, their supportive parents and our advocates in the community. We’re honoured that you place your faith in us and want to ensure that faith is rewarded by helping dancers achieve their potential.
