Our School

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.

Our school values, as chosen by our students and faculty are: Courage | Respect | Nurture | Resilience. We all endeavour as a school to embody these values in everything we do. 

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.
