Established since 1989, orginally named Susan Lucas school of dance. We offer classes in classical ballet, advanced jazz and pointe work. This family run business has the experience and education to train and enlight your child into the dancing world.

We take great pride in teaching the children and want to give them every opportunity to express themselves.

 

Classes are held termly in Gamlingay and Biggleswade.

Week day classes are classical ballet. Saturday classes alternate between Ballet and jazz. This is where performace work is taught as well as improving knowledge of the syllabus.

 

Biggleswade classes are held on Wednesdays and purely focus on classical ballet.
