Ballet Academy Scotland was founded in June 2011 by principal Sindy Monson. The aim of the school is to encourage individuals in their enjoyment of dance while they develop all the associated skills. To do that dance classes at Ballet Academy Scotland are creative and imaginative. From the very first baby bears class up to the most advanced students, individuality is cherished as a key route for developing expression and performance. As one progresses through the school the challenges become greater, including the opportunity to prepare for examinations and competitions.
Ballet Academy Scotland aims to nurture dancers along every step of the way, helping each person to reach their personal goals.
