Due to the impact of Covid we have had to make the difficult decision to close The Sholen Academy. The demands and requirements necessary to run the school have meant we can no longer continue classes.
(This website is in the process of being closed - Thank you)
Welcome to the Sholen Academy
We offer classes for children in RAD Ballet and ISTD Ballet and ISTD Modern and Tap.
The school has been established for over 40 years and runs classes for children aged between three and eighteen years. Our aim is to allow children to access the joys and benefits of dance. Unlike many 'performing arts' schools offering a wider range of classes, here at Sholen you can be assured our classes will create a well rounded dancer, able to perform as children, and should they wish, go on to professional dance colleges and access performance as a career. Ballet is the best place to start, and adding modern and tap allows for a greater dance performance. For the more serious students we can offer structured training to support that career in the theatre. We are a friendly and welcoming school and lifelong friendships are made here. All children are given equal opportunities and we frequently welcome back children of past pupils. Teachers are both experienced and qualified and the school is fully insured for your safety.
