We are thrilled to announce winning Performing Arts School of the Year for Central England 2021-2022 & The Best Ballet Provider for Central England 2020-2021
by Prestige Awards after being shortlisted with twelve other schools!
Ballet Malvern believes everyone should have the chance to dance and perform and is welcoming to students of all ages and abilities.
Rebecca says, "We teach our students to be their very best through our thorough knowledge of the industry and many years of experience at the highest levels in both Dance, Acting, Musical Theatre, vocational training and performing. We put a lot of emphasis on teaching correct technique which is necessary for a sustained dance career alongside having fun and nurturing each and every student. We believe all children should be given opportunities no matter their aspirations. Our professional performance experience allows us to pass on information and tips on how to audition successfully, backed up by our strong training. Ballet Malvern is extremely proud of its reputation within the industry and fabulous success rate at auditions.
Our core ethos is to nurture and encourage progression, professionalism and teach strong technique for students aiming for professional careers or just for fun with a strong emphasis on wellbeing, hence why we do not do general competitions. We feel competitions promote a false understanding of what is required within the industry and can promote bad habits. Every child is taught to reach their own potential from an extremely knowledgeable team of former professionals and vocationally trained teachers. We really know our stuff! We have no hidden costs and pride ourselves that we enable every student the chance to dance and perform but most of all to love what they are doing as much as we love to teach it!
Ballet Malvern gives their students many opportunities to perform throughout the year as well as a newly choreographed performance by our wonderful teachers every Christmas which includes the whole school (previous years Alice in Wonderland, Peter Pan, Sleeping Beauty, Mary Poppins, A Little Princess, The Wizard of Oz, Sound of Music, Beauty and the Beast and Les Miserables) as well as introducing a full length annual ballet (The Nutcracker and La Fille Mal Gardee) and dance opportunities in the community as well as professional opportunities at Malvern Theatres and within our Youth Dance Company RSK. We are currently working towards Into the Woods and Sleeping Beauty with our Musical Theatre and Ballet students.
