Term time children's courses

We offer a wide range of exciting co-curricular and sports courses for children.

Mallinson Ballet

The Mallinson Ballet Programme focuses on students who wish to enjoy Dance, recreationally, as well as those who aspire to Dance as a career. A number of our students have transitioned from Highgate to vocational dance schools, theatre and film.

They are coached, from four years old upwards, in the Cecchetti Classical Ballet method endorsed by the ISTD international examining body. Grade examinations are Ofqual accredited. Our pass rate over fourteen years has been exceptional. School shows are staged every two years allowing for theatrical experience and practice in this exquisite art. Teachers, trained by our ex-Royal Ballet tutor and examiner, have achieved and furthered their qualifications with outstanding results.

Our very talented pianists provide live accompaniment for all classes, vital to Balletic learning. Our studio facilities, of which we are justifiably proud, allow dancers to explore all movement fully and, being Wifi accessible, enable Zoom class attendance from Britain, Spain and America, at the highest levels, ensuring we move firmly forward in the twenty-first Century.

Miss Alison MAPP DTP is Head of Ballet.
