We are a Community Interest Company dedicated to raising the standard and profile of ballet in Sunderland, and making ballet accessible for all. Classes are small and friendly, and all taken by fully qualified staff who have many years of experience teaching at all levels. There are regular opportunities to perform and to take accredited exams.


Our teachers are all passionate about dance and keen to pass on their knowledge. As educators we continue to learn ourselves in order to provide our students with the best quality dance education, no matter their age, background or level of experience.
Performance is at the heart of our work at Sunderland Ballet, and everyone is encouraged to share their endeavours from beginning students to advanced dancers.

We have classes for everyone! A growing pre-school programme, including our daytime Play Dance, through a comprehensive range of children’s classes for all ages, to adult classes for a variety of abilities. We also have classes for seniors and vocational/advanced students for those taking their training more seriously, and specially adapted classes for the over-55s.

About us

At Sunderland Ballet we believe in opportunities for all. We have classes for everyone from pre-school children to retired adults; from those with professional aspirations to those who just love to dance; from community groups to vocational students and beyond. Ballet is our thing and we want to get as many people involved as possible!
