Setting Standards in Classical Ballet

These graded and well structured RAD Ballet classes for Boys and Girls are a favourite among many of our pupils. 


Classes are taught by Miss Samantha, Principal of SBSD.  Miss Samantha welcomes everyone into her prestigious Dance School delivering the world's most influential dance education in Ballet.
