BALLETONE CLASSES

Ballet is an excellent way to stay fit and healthy and is also incredibly sociable. Suzannah is a passionate and enthusiastic teacher who encourages the joy of movement to all, no matter what level. Balletone offers group and one-to-one classes for children and adults, from Pre-Primary all the way up to Advanced levels. 

Students have excelled in their exams and some have become RAD teachers themselves whilst others further their training by attending professional dance schools.

Whatever the path you choose, Balletone Classes will be your nurturing guide.

EXAMS

When students are ready, they have the opportunity to take an RAD exam. Exams take place both locally and in London. Students are examined by the Royal Academy of Dance examinations board. They will receive a certificate with their grade and medals if taking lower grades. This is a huge achievement for all  students and it shows just how much hard work they have put into their dancing. RAD exam results can also go towards the points tariff for universities. 

Testimonials

''I have been attending adult ballet with Suzie for many years, after having danced all my childhood. It's lots of fun and great exercise. I have made some lovely friends and it's the highlight of my week.''
Natasha Coplestone-Bristow
''I joined Balletone in 2019 and it has been such a joy to get back to ballet dancing. Suzie makes the sessions fun, but with the intention of making us work and always believing we can succeed. Balletone is not only beneficial for toning and strengthening the body but also a great motivator and stress buster especially during these lockdown times! Thankyou Suzie for bringing dancing alive again.''

Valery Miller
"Suzie's classes are welcoming, regardless of ballet experience and fitness levels. Always fun and an excellent workout."
Tracy Picolo
"I have been taking Balletone classes with Suzie for about 3 years, having come back to ballet after nearly 30 years! I thoroughly enjoy the classes, as they are a great way to keep fit while having fun. I've managed to progress from the beginner group to the intermediate. I enjoy the challenge that the more advanced class gives me-there's no better feeling than getting a step combination or a new jump right. Balletone is a great way to get fitter and more flexible, both physically and mentally while making new friends."
