We offer regular classes for students from 4 years to adult, with optional examinations as well as performance opportunities - all in a supportive and friendly environment. Our awarding body is the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dance (ISTD), one of the oldest dance training associations in the world, whose qualifications are approved by Ofqual, the government's exam regulator. The syllabus we follow was devised by renowned ballet master Enrico Cecchetti (1850-1928) who taught Anna Pavlova, Ninette De Valois and Vaslav Nijinsky to name but a few.

Classes are now finished for half term, and resume again on Tuesday 3rd November.



The Tuesday night adult class is moving to Sunderland College's Bede Campus from 22nd September. Class is now 7pm instead of 6.45pm.


Congratulations to Matilda from our Standard 2 class, who joins Elmhurst Associates this term.
