Welcome to Allesley
Outstanding training in dance and musical theatre for students from two-and-a-half years to adult. The school is a friendly, lively and welcoming studio with an enviable reputation for producing professional dancers and glittering stage shows, offering opportunities to pupils of all ages, ability and aspiration along the way. We are the first port of call for people wanting to perform dance in Coventry.
Classes are held in Coventry and are suitable for those children wishing to attend just once a week or equally those dance-mad and especially gifted students who can't stay away! Fully qualified and experienced teachers conduct all classes. Students wishing to follow a career in dance are offered intensive pre-vocational training from the age of 12 years of age and prepared and trained for auditions and interviews as required.
Allesley recommends that children initially consider ballet above other classes when they begin to learn dance. Not only do most children enjoy ballet, but the techniques taught give a strong base for all dance styles whether modern, jazz tap as ballet teaches the personal disciplines and deportment required to excel and progress in most other dance subjects. Examinations are always optional but they are encouraged in order to learn the satisfaction of setting goals and achieving them.
In addition to regular classes, workshops are held by visiting guest teachers to broaden the curriculum and students are encouraged to attend summer schools, scholarship schemes and residential courses. Pupils are constantly in demand for professional work and national youth companies. Many choose to continue their studies at full-time vocational schools and are encouraged to do so.
