Central School Of Ballet - Junior School


Central School of Ballet Junior School is a non-auditioned dance school for children aged 3-16 years.

The Junior School aims to provide an opportunity for children of all ages and abilities to engage with and to learn to love dance within the inspiring surrounding of a vocational dance school.

Through regular weekly dance classes, we provide our young dancers with a valuable opportunity to develop confidence and creativity. Alongside core ballet classes, our Junior Students also learn other dance styles including dalcroze. We also provide regular performance and work-sharing opportunities.

In addition, we aim to cultivate the innate talent of our younger pupils, encouraging and facilitating the most naturally capable to pursue dance training at a higher level where appropriate through our Coaching Classes.

Central's Junior School classes are based on a unique bespoke syllabus and a model of training that is in-keeping with the principles of the school's 30 years of dance training experience through our Senior School.

The Prep and Pre-Senior programme provides invaluable preparation for students hoping to enter full-time dance training.

The course is for aspiring students aged 11-16 years and is strictly by audition only. Through weekly Saturday classes, students are able to enrich their regular training. Students are able to engage and develop their learning through core ballet classes which are complimented by other dance styles such as; contemporary dance, pilates, character and pointe, dalcroze training is also offered as part of a well-rounded programme.

Students will also benefit by having performance and sharing opportunities.

All classes in the Associate School benefit from live music provided by one of our talented pianists.

The Associate School Manager is Jo Hurst and includes a permanent pool of teaching staff with regular assistants for the younger Junior School pupils.
