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.
