At the Vanessa Golborn School of Dance we specialise in Ballet, Modern, Tap, Jazz, Street and Contemporary dance. Our classes are held in studios with a sprung dance floor, ballet barres and mirrors, and all our teachers are fully qualified.

We understand that taking dancing is a social activity as well as an artistic and physical one, and to help students fit in and make friends our classes tend to be based on age ranges as well as ability.

For those students who show hard work and progress we offer graded exams and to those who show exceptional dedication and talent can offer vocational exams designed to prepare students for a career in dance or performing arts.

Exams are not compulsory, but can help students feel focused and gain a sense of achievement in passing Ofqual accredited exams, especially the higher grades which also gain UCAS points.

Fees are paid per term, but for new students we offer a 3 week pay-as-you-go trial period so you can try out our classes with no obligation to find what suits you. For more information on fees please see our timetable and prices.
