Welcome to the website for the Almond School of Dance.
Established in Surrey in 1984 specialising in Classical Ballet from 2½ years up to adults in Haslemere, Rowledge and Churt.
As an ex-professional dancer, my aim is to inspire pupils through imagination; encouraging and nurturing all students to fulfil their potential through the enjoyment and love of dance.
The discipline of Classical Ballet brings many things such as good posture, coordination, concentration and confidence to name but a few.
Ballet is an art form and through it pupils will also gain musicality and choreography skills which will be demonstrated at workshops throughout the year and end of term watching.
I offer the opportunity for Pupils to take ISTD Cecchetti exams in primary, standards and Grades through to the Major exams Intermediate, Advanced 1 and Advanced 2 in a safe and encouraging environment.
Once pupils have reached a certain level they are encouraged to take part in the Classical Ballet Awards and Associate Scheme.
Dancing is hard work but it should be fun and rewarding and pupils should leave class with a huge smile on their face.
