In addition to our graded classes, we have performance based classes to prepare for shows under the name Oxford Theatre Ballet.

Here we have choreography showcases and performances of classical ballets tailored to fit all the age groups and abilities. Friends and parents assist with costumes, lighting, sound and tickets! It is good to have an outlet for class and exam experience. After all, ballet is a performing art!

Recent venues have been Wychwood School Oxford and Cooper School Bicester so that pupils from the different venues can easily attend and there is plenty of audience seating.

From 2018 saw wonderful performances of Coppelia, in 2019 Cinderella and in 2023 Cats and The Nutcracker Suite.  There were also choreography competitions.  Costumes were stunning as always. See more pictures on the Facebook page!

We also hold annual whole school Showcases, which are lots of different styles of dance genres and are always a highlight of the ballet school year.

For 2024 we anticipate that Sleeping Beauty will be our next performance.

We look forward to seeing all our students shine on the stage and perform their beautiful ballet!

We use Kirtlington as a rehearsal venue – see here for a typical schedule of classes.
