About Brighton Ballet School
Established over 12 years ago, Brighton Ballet School offers dance classes to students of all ages and abilities, including adults from beginners to higher levels, in ballet, tap dance, Acrobatic Arts, Contemporary and Progressing Ballet Technique (body conditioning) .
We also offer professional/vocational training and private classes.
Students in both Adult and Children’s school are offered the opportunity to take exams in BBO Dance Syllabus from Primary through to Advanced level.
We hold one show or performance per year, usually around Christmas time and all students (including adults) are invited to take part.
Every 2 – 3 years we hold the show in a theatre.
Our small bespoke classes for children and teenagers, are tailored to your child’s interest and needs. Children are invited to join the school from as young as 3 years old in our Pre-Primary Ballet & Tap class. This class provides a gentle introduction to dancing in a fun encouraging and safe environment. We offer a three week trail to help settle students into their classes and decide whether they would like to continue. Children can then progress through the graded system, taking an exam once every academic year.
Vocational training, audition preparation, pointe work assessments and private lessons are also a large part of what we offer.
We welcome adults of all ages and abilities from complete beginners to advanced dancers, in ballet, tap and contemporary dance.

Excellent Exam Result
We pride ourselves on repeatedly receiving excellent exam results. The majority of our students receive Merits and Distinctions at exams of all levels and disciplines. During the past 12 years we have prepared hundreds of students for exams in ballet and tap, many of which have gone on to have successful careers in the industry.
Many of our Students have been attending the school for a great many years, starting when they were just 4 or 5 years old. We feel it is a great privilege to watch them grow into confident successful adults and follow their careers with keen interest.
We like to get to know our students so that we can tailor their training to suit their needs and abilities. We find that this personal approach leads to a more fulfilled happier student who will make faster progress under this tutelage.
