The School

Bramhall School of Dancingwas founded by Mrs Helen Gray and first opened its doors at Bramhall Village Club in September 1983, with a class of 4 babies. One of them – Karen VanRoss – you can read about later.

Originally specialising in classical ballet, the school now offers ballet, tap, national folk dance, modern, jazz, contemporary and Spanish dance, and has established itself as a centre of excellence in all subjects.

The school also offers Pre-School classes for children from 3: it is possible to enter the school at the age of 3 and stay, happily and successfully dancing, until leaving school at 18. (As many pupils do!).
There are adult classes too, in ballet and tap.

All aspects of dancing and stagework are incorporated into the classes, which are aimed at all girls and boys, whether for a career – in either teaching or performing – or as a hobby. Vocational training for serious students takes place throughout the week.

Classes are primarily held at the Bramhall Village Club;

Parents are requested not to attempt to discuss issues or ask questions of teachers in between or during classes, as timetables do have to be adhered to and this can cause a safety issue.

Mrs Sue Kane is always happy to help with any questions about school policies/uniform/issues - she can be found in the school shop on Saturdays at the main school and can normally answer anything - if she can't, she'll find out!
