Mike is cycling the 70 miles to Bristol on 14th May to celebrate his **birthday (he is fund raising for Bowel Cancer in memory of the 12" of bowel he no longer has!) Daughter Caroline is attempting the 3 peaks challenge the following month and raising funds for the Wallace & Gromit Appeal for her hospital - Bristol Childrens - I shall spectate with trepidation and admiration - thank you for reading this!
a great show today, we loved it. as it was our 5th show we were loving comparing what people have done before with what they are doing now.. brilliant to see everyone's development. Well done all.

I cannot hear certain pieces of music from Nutcracker or Sleeping Beauty in particular without thinking of Jane..

Our Story

West Berks Ballet School has the vocation of instilling the love of dance in its pupils.
Some of our pupils will, we hope, go on to a career in dance.
Others will develop a love of dance which will stay with them all their lives.

Annual productions, alternating between the classical ballet & modern & tap departments, develop confidence.

We offer both Easter and Summer Schools (non-residential) where the participants are able to create a final performance, on stage, for their audience - a wonderful opportunity to make new friends with the same love of dance and performance.
