Children’s Ballet Lessons in London

Find ballet classes for children in Greenwich, Blackheath & Eltham.

Angelina and her team of professional, young and qualified teachers run children’s ballet lessons in London, specifically teaching in Greenwich, Blackheath and Eltham. Our school has been created for those who would prefer national and international-level performing dancers to help their children (aged six and over) through exams, or to simply enjoy the world of dance. 

Baby Ballet (children up to 6 years)

If your child is younger than six years old, Angelina, Emily and Nikki teaches regular daily lessons with the wonderful Baby Ballet franchise. Your child will learn to love movement and music surrounded by other children of the same age. Parents are welcome to come and see too! Babyballet timetable listings are provided elsewhere on our website for your convenience – simply click here.

Primary classes (children 6 years and above)

Primary classes are for children over five years old – first timers and those transitioning from younger classes are both welcome. Children will learn the foundations of classical ballet in a fun and rewarding atmosphere. Additionally, students will work on creativity, musicality and physical skills.

Grades one, two and three

Students will focus on furthering their ballet skills through the syllabus of grades from the International Dance Teacher Association, additionally developing physicality and individuality.

We also allow you to make up any missed classes on a different day of the week during the same half term.

How old does my child have to be to start ballet?

We generally teach children from the age of six, which is when they can begin to learn the IDTA syllabus.

For younger children, we recommend the Babyballet franchise in Greenwich and Blackheath, where Angelina, Emily and Nicky are all teaching.

Should my child take ballet exams?

Exams are a good way to work towards a goal and a great motivational tool, but each child is different. If you think your child would not enjoy taking an exam, we are happy to simply move the child up a level when their teacher thinks that they are ready to progress.

Do ballet exams count towards UCAS points?

Some of the graded exams do count towards points, and more information can be found on the IDTA website and UCAS website.

Can my child take more than one dance lesson per week?
Absolutely. Whilst many students enjoy one lesson a week, we strongly encourage any students who wish to spend more time learning with our teachers.
Will my child need any specific clothing or equipment?
We completely understand that you might wish to take a few weeks before deciding to buy a full kit. However, if after a term your child decides to carry on, we would like to stress the importance of acquiring and wearing the uniform (which we have kept as affordable as possible).
As well as being designed to help the teacher see and correct the posture if needed, it will make your child feel part of a team and create a professional and disciplined environment. Uniform is also mandatory for any IDTA exam taken with the school.
Can my child take private lessons?
A number of our students take private lessons regularly or on an had hoc basis, to deepen the technique taught in class.
Will my child participate in shows?

Every year in December we organise a little showcase. Participation is not mandatory, but the children certainly seem to enjoy taking part!
