About Edinburgh Ballet

Since opening in 2008, under the direction of Ms K. Sara J. Wood, Edinburgh Ballet has developed into a dance school well recognised for high standards and achievements.

 

With continuously outstanding results in Royal Academy of Dance Ballet Examinations, Class Awards and dance performances, we have established a reputation for quality ballet training.

Edinburgh Ballet provides studio ballet classes for children as young as 2 years old, up to adults. Our non-syllabus Modern/Jazz dance classes also help to complement student’s Classical Ballet training, and allow them to broaden their dance knowledge and experience.

Our youngest dancers begin the Royal Academy of Dance Pre-school Curriculum before progressing onto the RAD syllabus for Pre-Primary and Primary in Dance around the early Primary School years. Following this, students move through the levels of the RAD Graded Examination Syllabus, entering for their Classical Ballet Examinations.

Those students who hold a natural ability for classical ballet, have reached a certain age, and have a desire to progress at a more professional level, are invited to join our Vocational Ballet class.

Similarly, some talented students are invited to join our ‘Scholars’ classes, for extra ballet training.

We hold annual dance performances, allowing all of our students the opportunity to experience performance on stage in a professional venue.

Whether dancing as a hobby, or for those who hope to go on to pursue a career in dance, Edinburgh Ballet provides excellent tuition in RAD Classical Ballet, Modern/Jazz and Pilates from an expertly trained and qualified teacher.

Our venues are easily accessible if you live in or near: Kirknewton, Eastcalder, Livingston, Ratho, Kirkliston, Balerno, Currie, Juniper Green, Colinton, Sighthill, and Corstorphine.

Studio locations are based at:

The Music Box, Edinburgh College, Sighthill Campus, Bankhead Avenue

Mum of 2yr old

We were so impressed at how professionally the show was run, and the quality of the production itself. You’ve done a great service to the kids, and the quality of their dancing was a fabulous reflection on your teaching.
