Taking Dance to a new level

Do Ballet

It has been twelve years since the introduction of the BBO Ballet & Tap syllabus at the Debbie Chapman Dancers. During those twelve years the course has gone from strength to strength and has seen a 100% pass rate with 99% gaining a distinction or merit.

 The success of this course has been further highlighted with pupils being accepted as BBO scholars, associates of The National Dance Company Wales, Ballet Cymru & The Royal Ballet School, with Georgia Jones graduating from The Royal Ballet School last year.  

Ballet takes place every day (with the exception of a Friday) and is £5 a lesson, paid half termly.

  Do Tap

Pupils can take tap lessons under the BBO syllabus. Examinations can be taken and there are always tap items in our large scale shows. Tap lessons are on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday and are £3.50 a lesson, paid weekly.
