Welcome to the website for the Marylebone Ballet School and Vacani Ballet, Bayswater.

The aim of our schools is to give each pupil individual support and encouragement to ensure they enjoy and benefit from every class, developing imagination, self-confidence and dance quality as well as technique and musicality.

The classes are carefully graded to suit pupils at different levels, from our 'Baby Ballet' classes, through to our children that attend once a week for fun to those who attend several classes a week to progress more seriously in ballet.

We are delighted that many of our classes are accompanied by experienced pianists.

We welcome children from the age of two. These classes consist of songs with actions, stories and movements to develop co-ordination. Simple balletic movements are introduced at this stage developing to more formal teaching of technique when pupils are old enough to enjoy a more structured approach..


We offer ballet tuition across various locations from the heart of London to the idyllic countryside setting of Bedfordshire. Please click on the relevant area below to find out more about each of these unique locations, along with timetables and application forms.
