Full-Time School

Visionary Vocational Dance Training Meets Leading Academic Tuition


The School Day


Our school day begins in the morning and students participate in two blocks of vocational dance during the school day. This sits alongside a solid academic curriculum.

Smaller Class Sizes

Due to the size and nature of our school, LVBS is proud that smaller class sizes offer students more opportunities for individual learning and provide a bespoke approach to each student's education.


After School Programme

At the end of the school day, our full-time students continue their dance training in partnership with West London School of Dance, cementing their training and ensuring that within the school week, they train for a minimum of 15 hours.

Vocational Dance

Vocational Dance training is at the heart of our school, accompanied by live music. Our students come to us with potential and we guide them towards realising it through our renowned training.

In years 6 - 9, our vocational training program lays the groundwork for students by focusing on building a solid foundation in technique, musicality, and expressive abilities in classical dance and beyond.


As students progress into years 10 and 11, our training shifts gears to offer an increased exposure to classical and contemporary dance repertoire, refining their technical skills, and equipping them for potential admission to prominent dance institutions, both nationally and internationally.

Students frequently engage with prominent industry experts, coaches, and choreographers, affording them valuable insights into the wider professional landscape and the expectations of working in professional settings.

Throughout this journey, many of our young learners discover additional talents and passions for various facets of dance and the performing arts. LVBS's unique emphasis on nurturing classical dancers with versatile abilities in singing, acting, and musical theatre dance ensures that our students are prepared for a successful career in the artistic field, regardless of where their unique talents may lead them


We are so proud of our former students at LVBS. They go on to dance at world-class colleges and, subsequently, produce world-class work across stage and screen.
