What do we do at Highgate Ballet School?
Highgate Ballet School Ltd. opened in 1995 by Julie Cronshaw, FISTD a Royal Ballet School trained former professional ballerina and Cecchetti specialist.
Cecchetti Method was chosen for the school’s ballet curriculum because it develops technically competent, highly artistic and musical dancers even at foundation levels.

To enhance the ballet experience, students can also study contemporary dance and participate in our performance programmes and summer schools.
