The Ballet School Notting Hill started life in 2002 with just four pupils in the playroom of a house on Westbourne Park Road. Fifteen years on, it is now a thriving mecca for all budding ballerinas in the Notting Hill area and beyond! It all began as a result of Claire Mcnicholl’s search for a teacher for her ballet-mad 2 year old, Estée. She was introduced to Vanessa (who at the time was freelancing for the Royal Academy of Dance) through a mutual friend. A couple of classes and a huge amount of lattés later The Ballet School Notting Hill – and a great friendship – was born! The school offers tuition in classical ballet for children aged two and half and up. Our aim is to give each child the opportunity to develop self-confidence, poise, co-ordination and musicality in a fun, creative yet highly professional environment. All our teachers are CRB checked, qualified professionals and a pianist accompanies each class.
