Our aim is to create a happy and enjoyable atmosphere in which children of all abilities can flourish in Ballet, Contemporary, Tap, Street and Musical Theatre.

Our classes are taught in our beautiful studios in Naseby, Northamptonshire.
We also teach at Pitsford School, Spratton Hall School and Maidwell Hall.

Private lessons are also available on request.

From Thursday 5th November our classes will transfer to Zoom…we are experts now so we look forward to continuing our student’s progress over the coming weeks of lockdown.

Over the summer we held RAD graded and vocational exams via video recording. The results were fabulous – Gold medals for Grade 8, Grade 7 and Grade 2 and Silver medals for Advanced 1, Advanced Foundation and Grade 7.

We held a wonderful Musical Theatre workshop on 22nd September delivered by London professional dancer Lucy Williams. The next workshop will be in December.

Apart from all our children’s classes in Ballet, Contemporary, Street and Tap, the grown ups have enjoyed dancing again too! All adults are very welcome to try out our Ballet, Tap and Dance Fusion Dance classes (space permitting).

READ WHAT PARENTS OF OUR STUDENTS SAY…

Excerpt from a thank you letter from an audience member at The Derngate

The Principal dancers were fantastic role models for the younger children in their disciplined control, skill and musicality. I enjoyed every moment.

Mandy

Thank you for putting so much time and energy into producing something the children will be proud of for a long time. As a parent and member of the audience, I was blown away by the exacting standards, performance and utter beauty of the whole performance. I was wowed by my daughter – her confidence was superb…thank you so much.

Olivia, age 19, Advanced 2 student, now at University

I cannot thank you enough for everything the school has given me – the confidence, self belief and love of dance. Thank you for the skills that dance has given me beyond the actual steps.

Matilda

I very much want to pass on my congratulations and thanks to you all for the enormous amount of work, energy and creative drive which you have put into producing such a wonderful show. We were extremely impressed by the childrens’ performances: the standard, the discipline and the enjoyment were evident. Now, it was so good that my son, just turned 3, has asked if he can do ballet now too.

The Thompsons

Thank you for being such a positive role model for our daughter for Ava and her first year of dance.

Rozzi

I just wanted reiterate how amazing we all thought the show was. I simply can’t imagine how much time, thought, effort and organising went into putting a show like that on. Truly wonderful.

Virginia

That show was absolutely outstanding. The energy, enthusiasm, sheer joy and beauty which flowed abundantly from that stage was a privilege to watch.

Fi

Just wanted to say that we thoroughly enjoyed the show, all the girls were amazing!! It reflected how much effort and organising that went into it! I want to say thank you to yourself, Helen and everyone else that made the show possible and so fabulous! My daughter has really enjoyed being part of the show.

Mary

My daughter’s had a fantastic year with two excellent exam results and culminating in getting into the Royal Ballet School Junior Associates. You have gone above and beyond to support her and us throughout the year and now she has the most amazing experience and opportunity in front of her!

Mum to Beth, Royal Ballet School Junior Associate

The teachers have gone above and beyond to support her and us throughout the year and now she has the most amazing experience and opportunity in front of her, whatever happens!

Fiona

Just a quickie to say thank you to all for a lovely show. Our little girl is the youngest of three and the only one to do ballet so this was our first experience of a ‘show’ We were really impressed with how professional it was, lovely costumes and a really well put together show. Well done to all 🙂

Keredy

My daughter has been attending ballet classes with Natalie and Hayley since just before she was 3 years old, and 18 months later she doesn’t stop dancing around the house. Joni loves wearing the uniform, learning new skills and I have seen a huge difference in her physical capability and musicality. Joni was so proud to be a baby mouse in the Nutcracker too – such spectacular performances, costume and efforts from everyone behind the scenes.

Kathy

My husband and I wanted to say a personal Thank you for all the hard work you put in to the dance show, what you achieved at the weekend was absolutely amazing. Everything was perfect, the music, the costumes, the care to detail and the organisation. I still find myself in utter disbelief that you organised that many children and parents!

Cathy

I would just like to thank you so much for all hard work that went into such a fantastic show. Imogen really enjoyed her role as a butterfly and it has given her so much confidence and happiness to be part of such a fantastic production.

Chloe

The ballet show was a triumph. It was such a pleasure to see everyone looking so brilliant and beautiful.

Ellie, age 18, completed Grades 1-8…now off to University!

My confidence has grown so much over the years and I believe that it is because of ballet and the school always being there to support me.

From a thank you letter from an audience member at The Derngate

The dancing looked so professional and the children were so disciplined in their performance. How their confidence must have grown as they looked out into that vast space to all those hundreds of rapt faces focusing on them.

Ali

You have inspired and encouraged my son so much this year. Looking forward to next year!
