Masters of Ballet Academy is a London based Vocational Ballet School, offering classical ballet training for students from 5 to 18 years old, out of academic school hours.
Masters of Ballet Academy is one of the only schools in the UK to offer the Vaganova Method of training.
We hold different levels of classes, from young children’s classes to Pre-Professional level. All tuition follows 'The Vaganova Method' and each student will be placed in the class most appropriate to his/her ability.
We offer Vocational Training after academic school hours. Regular weekly classes provide our young dancers with a valuable opportunity to develop confidence, creativity, technical ability, coordination, stamina, strength, musicality and grace. These are the skills needed for Pre and Professional levels and will give students the best possible training for a career in the world of dance. The attention given to developing the strengths and talents of each student will benefit them both physically and spiritually, even if they decide not to be a professional dancer.
We are also known for our highly acclaimed Masters of Ballet Easter and Summer Intensives at Sadler's Wells Theatre, where we invite guest teachers from all over the world to teach our weekly timetable.
Masters of Ballet Academy is a member of ARBTA (Association of Russian Ballet and Theatre Arts) and it has full accreditation from the BDQT (Board of Dance Qualifications & Training).
