Dance Class


Founded in 1930 by Edouard Espinosa and Eve Kelland, the British Ballet Organization began with a vision of inspiring excellence in dance education. Maintaining this ethos, we continue today as an organisation that offers multi-genre dance syllabi and training to teachers and students across the world. For over 25 years we have been regulated by the UK Government as an Awarding Organisation for our dance examinations and teaching qualifications.

Take a look at the different genres, qualifications and dance events we offer!
