About the School

Tenterden Ballet Studios has held classes in Ballet, Tap, Modern and Jazz Dance as an established teaching centre for over 25 years. The aim of the school is to give all pupils a thorough grounding and choice in the above dance disciplines.

For the vocational child, further training and the possibility to join associate classes in London are made available. For the 'Once a Weeker' we aim to give children a joy and appreciation of dance.

Both the Ashford and Tenterden branches hold shows and enter children for Imperial Society of Dance examinations on a regular basis. After enrollment, pupils are encouraged to attend regularly in order to progress.
