Dance Activities

ISTD Cecchetti ballet lessons are available to all girls as an extra activity. Lessons are arranged in our beautiful mirrored and sprung-floored Dance Studio around individual girls' timetables and may be arranged as solo, duo or group lessons. For many girls, these classes are simply an enjoyable hobby, but for those more serious about their dancing, opportunities are also available to take ISTD examinations.

There is a range of contemporary dance clubs for girls of all ages:

  • QYDC – Contemporary Dance Company
  • Q-Crew – Urban Dance Troupe
  • Commercial Dance Company
  • Lower School Dance Company
  • Aerial Hoop/Silks Classes

A number of girls have gone on to dance colleges and universities to study dance further and are now dancing professionally. Girls enjoy performing at inter-House Dance competitions, Dance Off events and House Suppers throughout the year. There are also many opportunities for dancers to get involved with Drama productions in both the Lower and Upper School.

Visits to see productions by the Royal Ballet Company, dance performances at The Royal Opera House and West End shows are also arranged.
