About Graham School of Dance

Young pupil from Graham School of Dance in Bishop's Stortford

Graham School of Dance is a leading dance school based in Bishop's Stortford providing Dance Lessons, Drama and Musical Theatre classes to pupils across Hertforshire and Essex.

Dance classes are taught by friendly, experienced, dedicated and caring teachers whose high level of commitment and enthusiasm encourages and inspires the School’s pupils. The School’s high standards are maintained by these highly qualified and experienced teachers, and teachers have a pro-active programme of Continuing Professional Development.

By invitation, Gifted & Talented pupils are invited to take extra classes to further work towards maximising their potential, and dancers are supported in their Dance training by regular weekly lessons in Pilates and/or Progressive Ballet Technique.

The success of Graham School of Dance can be seen by the number of pupils winning places at renowned centres of excellence for the Performing Arts, such as The Royal Ballet School, Rambert School of Ballet & Contemporary Dance, Elmhurst School of Dance, English National Ballet School, Laine Theatre Arts, Bird College of Dance, Performers College, Urdang Academy,  Stella Mann College,  Italia Conti, Guildford School of Acting and LAMDA. A Graham School of Dance pupil has also been placed as one of the top 5 pupils in the annual national LAMDA competition.
