What do we do at LAGAD Ballet?

London Academy of Gymnastics and Dance (LAGAD Ltd) was founded in 2009 by Jessica Shenton MA, ARAD, Dip TTC RBS a Royal Ballet School trained former professional dancer and teacher.

Our highly qualified teachers are all classically trained and enhanced DBS checked.

We offer Ballet for all levels and aim for our children to enjoy the wonders of dance through imagination and joy. Ballet exams are available for those that want to enter them, but this is not compulsory, as we are aware that many children just want to enjoy the classes without the pressure of exams.

LAGAD Ballet offers advantages for you and your child.

Our ballet classes follow a traditional method and the great tradition of dance. We have developed a Ballet programme to suit your young dancer at every stage of their journey.

To enhance their ballet experience, students can also study gymnastics and participate in our performances and Holiday Camps.

Parents can pay using Childcare Vouchers, making the classes tax exempt!
