welcome to the school
'We believe in dance, join us on our journey'
Penelopes has been successfully training children to dance in Birmingham for over 41 years.
We specialise in Classical Ballet & Contemporary Dance Training. The school welcomes children from 18months to Adult learners to our inclusive dance classes that are designed to inspire, educate and nurture.
We hold external examinations 3 times a year with both The Royal Academy of Dance and IDTA. Our results average distinction+.
We believe examinations should be seen as markers of your childs learning and not the sole reason for dancing!

I strive to create happy, confident and well informed dancers whilst helping them to develop musicality, communicative and performance skills.
I study the emerging science of best possible teaching practice to enable young dancers to achieve their maximum learning benefit from each visit to the school.
Through careful, guided teaching I create a safe, non-judgemental space for learning. Where success is measured by your childs happiness and the ability to move freely with ease whilst developing musicality and self-confidence.

"There are not enough positive adjectives we can use as a family to describe how we feel about Penelope’s Dance Studio.
The outstanding quality of teaching, real life expertise and an unrivalled technique and approach has shown in all of our daughters progression in the last few weeks.
The addition of Miss Kate and Alex to add to the variance of experience, skill and talent for the girls is amazing.
The entire place feels personal, filled with passion, kindness, nurturing of children and of excellent teaching quality and we are delighted to be a part of it! Thank you to the whole team x"
