Empowering Minds and Inspiring Futures in London's Rich Cultural Landscape


A Warm Welcome from our Directors

At London Vocational Ballet School, we are dedicated to shaping the future stars of classical dance, providing them with a solid foundation that blends the artistry of ballet with a comprehensive academic education. Our commitment to excellence sets us apart as a premier vocational ballet establishment, where students thrive both as dancers and scholars.

Our mission is clear: to prepare aspiring dancers for the rigours of upper school ballet training, all while fostering their intellectual growth. Small class sizes lie at the heart of our approach, ensuring that every student receives personalised attention and tailored guidance. 

From Year 6 to Year 11, we offer a comprehensive educational journey that focuses on the renowned British classical technique. For our younger aspiring dancers, our associate programme provides a stepping stone towards future excellence.

One of our proudest achievements lies in our distinguished alumni, who have left an indelible mark on the performing arts industry. Their successes reflect the dedication, passion, and transformative education that define the London Vocational Ballet School experience.

Whether your aspirations lie in the world of dance or you seek a holistic education that nurtures both body and mind, London Vocational Ballet School is your destination for excellence. 

Welcome to London Vocational Ballet School.

Our Mission

At our school, we take immense pride in our position as a premier location for vocational ballet training, where we offer exceptional instruction in classical ballet and various dance disciplines.

Our primary objective is to equip students for full-time upper school ballet training. Our vocational training approach is centred on fostering technique, versatility, and musicality, all underpinned by discipline and creativity.

This approach empowers students to evolve as dancers with a distinct sense of individuality and expression, all supported by a strong foundational technique.

To guarantee personalised training and individualised support, our class sizes are deliberately kept small. We organise academic subjects by year groups, with core subjects grouped based on academic proficiency.

Irrespective of a student's starting point, our commitment is to help each individual exceed their potential. We meticulously monitor each student's progress to ensure a comprehensive and well-balanced curriculum that equally values both vocational and academic studies.
