Children who have enjoyed this foundation for dance move into primary ballet and/or jazz classes when they are ready.  For mums and dads - Adult Evening Classes are available in Tap and Jazz for beginners and improvers.

Starting Out

Allesley recommends that children initially consider ballet above other classes when they begin to learn dance. Not only do most children enjoy ballet, but the techniques taught give a strong base for all dance styles whether modern, jazz tap as ballet teaches the personal disciplines and deportment required to excel and progress in most other dance subjects.  Examinations are always optional but they are encouraged  in order to learn the satisfaction of setting goals and achieving them.


In addition to regular classes, workshops are held by visiting guest teachers to broaden the curriculum and students are encouraged to attend summer schools, scholarship schemes and residential courses. Pupils are constantly in demand for professional work and national youth companies. Many choose to continue their studies at full-time vocational schools and are encouraged to do so.
