Welcome to
Sunderland Ballet School


We are a traditional ballet school in the heart of the city providing classes for children and adults in the renowned Cecchetti method of training. Classes are small and friendly, and all taken by Director Emily Wallace who has many years of experience teaching at all levels. There are regular opportunities to perform and to take accredited exams.
