The Rosemary Lane School of Ballet was established in Wolverton in 2001 by esteemed Royal Academy of Dance teachers Kathleen Woollard and Rosemary Lane.
Principal Rosemary Lane is a Royal Academy of Dance registered teacher with over 20 years teaching experience and a proven track record preparing and entering students for Royal Academy of Dance examinations.
Our school hosts daily classes for pupils of all ages and abilities. Whether the subject is Classical Ballet or Contemporary our classes are instrumental in achieving a high standard of performance with all students. Our classes help children develop confidence, co-ordination, musicality, technique and performance skills.
The school regularly holds productions in a professional theatre setting, ensuring every dancer has the opportunity to enjoy the experience of performing on stage. In July 2022, students presented a full-length adaptation of ‘Cinderella' at Stantonbury Theatre, Milton Keynes. Previous productions have included 'Sleeping Beauty', 'The Nutcracker' and 'Swan Lake'.
Whether our young dancers take classes with the view of becoming a professional dancer or whether the wish to dance simply for fun, we aim to satisfy every individuals need.
“My 3 year old daughter absolutely loves going to Rosemary's classes. After each lesson she will come back home and keep on dancing for the rest of the day. So nice to see her happy and inspired. Rosemary is exactly what I thought a proper ballet teacher would look like, it was first sight love”
