Welcome to the Sally Prout School of Dancing

The emphasis within the school is placed upon Classical Ballet, which secures strong technique and discipline and produces a solid foundation for all other dance genres. The Classical classes are complimented by Tap and Jazz lessons, which allow a freer use of expression.

Children are accepted from the age of 3 years. At this age Ballet is taught with the emphasis on stories and mime.

Later, pupils are able to attend Tap and Jazz classes. Tap helps to improve rhythm and musicality whilst the non-syllabus Jazz classes allow a freer style of dance expression with the emphasis on fun.


One of our students, Maya, has successfully auditioned and gained a scholarship to train at Tring Park School for the Performing Arts. Maya also gained places at Central School of Ballet, Edinburgh Festival Ballet School and The Royal Ballet Advanced Associates. Maya will take up her place at Tring in September. Congratulations Maya. We are incredibly proud of your achievements.

Congratulations to Samuel Banks, alumni of SPSD who has gained a contract with Ballet Cymru. Samuel’s contract will start next month. We are all very proud Samuel and can’t wait to come and watch you perform!
