Timetable

Saddleworth Ballet School is an accredited school of bbodance [the new name for the British Ballet Organisation], meaning that we offer nationally recognised qualifications in a range of genres, that are Ofqual regulated. Bbodance has a rich heritage, having been established in 1930 by Edouard Espinosa and Eve Kelland, who are recognised worldwide, as two of the most important influences in both the development of dance and the training of dancers. For more information on this organisation, please visit www.bbo.dance. Most significantly, all children at Saddleworth Ballet School acquire the necessary technical, physical, artistic and performance skills, from beginner to professional level. Teaching and learning is also underpinned by the highest quality of both group and individual feedback in order to provide a robust measurement of progression and achievement for each child.
