The Ballet Academy

By the founders of Tippy Toes Ballet

Our Classes

Welcome to The Ballet Academy. We are an exceptional ballet school offering children a chance to attend ballet classes with the aim of achieving an exam certification through the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dance (I.S.T.D) 


The Ballet Academy is for children aged 5.5 and older.  These classes are a natural progression from our preschool classes at Tippy Toes Ballet. However, we also welcome children who would like to experience ballet for the first time and look forward to nurturing their love of dance.


The Ballet Academy aims to inspire the children who attend, and through our exam classes, we are pleased to say that we have consistently achieved outstanding results in examinations whilst retaining our ability to deliver fun, inspirational classes. 


Our classes are very inclusive with the key element on enjoyment and with the emphasis still on having fun and gaining confidence.


Uniform is required, this instils a sense of discipline, comradery and encourages the children to focus as a class in preparation for taking their exam and moving up to the next level.


The students will now be on their journey of study to become a ballet dancer, and through The Ballet Academy will be well equipped to do so.


We look forward to welcoming you.


The Ballet Academy Team.

“My child now has taken 2 exams now with The Ballet academy and I have seen her confidence go from strength to strength, there was a real sense of achievement on receiving her certificates, certainly something for the wall!”
