About Us

Mandy’s Dance Academy, established in 1998, is the local representative for the British Ballet Organization (BBO).  We specialize in teaching classical ballet and different dance genres.

Our school is run in a very familiar atmosphere whereby all students are made to feel at ease so that they can give out their best and boost their self-esteem.  Two scholarships are awarded annually.  We also produce our own performances and dance for ad-hoc presentations.

The classes are all supervised by fully qualified tutors.  

We look forward to meeting you and together experience the joy of dancing!

The British Ballet Organization advocates ‘dance for all’.  It believes there should be opportunity for all those interested in acquiring dance performance skills to participate in a well devised, safe and developmental programme of dance study, and to recognize their progress and achievement through taking examilations.  Our exams are recognized by the Government’s Qualifications and Curriculum Authority (QCA / OFQUAL), the Qualifications and Curriculum Authority Wales (ACCAC) and Norther Ireland (CCEA).
