We plan levels of training carefully designed to introduce the correct technique and instruction appropriate for the age and physical development of the student. Our school ethos is to nurture each individual child to develop their own strengths and provide them with the confidence and poise to support them throughout life.

At Pencaitland Carraige House we run after school Ballet,  dance classes every Monday. We teach children from the age of 3 – 18 years of age and as the children move up into the senior school we ask them to join our main studio in Musselburgh Stage Door Studios.

Our school year focuses on two terms, in our first term we work towards a structured syllabus ending in  either a  school exam  or Royal Academy of Dance exam.

Our second term works towards our Annual Show which is the highlight of the school year this runs in      June and is  held in  Musselburgh’s Brunton Theatre. This gives our pupils the chance to put everything  they  have learnt into  practice in a professional Theatre. This is where we announce the most improved  child  throughout the year and  Footlights Dance Studio give the child with the biggest personality on  stage a  trophy.

Our classes are held within Pencaitland Carraige House which is situated in Pencaitland Church  grounds, the  entrance to the Carriage House is much hidden by trees.


To enrol within the school please choose a suitable class from our Timetable or Locations and your teacher will give you an information pack at your first class which explains how to enrol and set up payment. You can wear leggings and a T-shirt at the first few lessons and you can find details on uniform here.

If your child wishes to leave the school please give us a terms notice.
