Welcome to the Hitchin School of Russian Ballet
Situated in the historic market town of Hitchin, The Hitchin School of Russian Ballet is based at The Hitchin Boys’ School Sports Centre, a few minutes’ walk from the Town Centre and local shops.
Founded in 2007. the school continues to maintain traditional values, combined with high standards of tuition.
As a strong foundation in Ballet is the best basis on which to build any dance technique, classes in Ballet are central to the timetable. We take students from 5 years and up.
Many pupils obtain the very highest grades under the guidance and tutoring of the team of experienced teachers who between them have many years of professional dance experience.
Students have gone on to study ballet at vocational schools and associate programmes including The Royal Ballet, Ballet Theatre UK, Ballet Boost, The Academy of Balletic Arts (ABA) and Central School of Ballet.
Ballet classes follow the syllabi of the N.A.T.D Russian Method, from Primary to Advanced 2.
Contemporary dance can be added from age 7 and follows the syllabi of the N.A.T.D, the first awarding organisation to offer a graded syllabus which has been officially recognised by Ofqual, and is eligible for UCAS points.
Many of our students go on to study Contemporary and all other forms of dance at vocational schools, colleges and universities.
We also hold classes for amateur adults - all levels.
We hold classes at Hitchin Boys School Sports Centre, Grammar school Walk, Hitchin, SG5 1JB
