Ballet Classes in St Albans

The Stephanie Ledger School of Dancing was established in 1972 by Stephanie Ledger. The school offers ballet classes for children aged 3 and upwards. The emphasis of the classes is on developing dance technique in a fun and friendly atmosphere.

Unlike many schools, all our classes offer live music from our highly qualified pianists which ensures the pupils develop their musicality.

Our Aim

“It is the desire of the school to instil a love of dance in each and every pupil, whatever their ability. I hope that a balance of fun and structured learning will help the children to develop a sound technique and form a lasting appreciation of ballet and its collaboration with music. We are very fortunate to have several talented musicians providing piano accompaniment for all of our classes which will help us to achieve this aim.”

We hold Parents’ Days every other term which will give you an opportunity to watch your child’s class with any special visitors or family whom you may like to bring. These events are fun for the children as well as offering a chance to see their development and progress.

Please also be aware that ballet is a physical art form and some physical contact may be necessary to explain body movement and avoid injury. All relevant members of staff have enhanced CRB checks.


45 minute class: £75.00 per term
1 hour class: £85.00 per term

There is a discount of £10.00 per term for immediate additional family members or pupils taking more than one class per week. This does not apply to examination coaching classes which are charged on a cost only basis and may vary according to venue and staff.
