About Us

Surrey Academy of Ballet and Performing Arts was founded over 25 years ago.

Today, the school specialises in Ballet (RAD), Modern, Tap & Jazz (ISTD) and Musical Theatre. We have, to date, achieved a 100% pass rate in all examinations taken by our students.

Classes are held in Dorking, Surrey.

All Surrey Academy staff are fully qualified and registered and include many ex-professional dancers. All staff are CRB Enhanced. The school caters for students from 3 years old to professional level.  Surrey Academy stages its own biennial shows at the Epsom Playhouse, Epsom .  Students also take part in local pantomime.

Staff at Surrey Academy are experienced with dealing with students who dance for a hobby, as well as those who wish to pursue a career in dance. Classes are disciplined, fun and creative. We aim for the highest standard from each of our students, whatever their natural ability.
