Turning Pointe School of Dance offers classes in Lewes, Haywards Heath, Barcombe and Plumpton to study Ballet, Pointe, Modern, Tap, Jazz, Musical Theatre and Street Jazz. Extension classes are also offered to gifted students at a reduced rate to help prepare for auditions and gain valuable extra tuition. Adult Ballet and Tap classes are also available.
We are a friendly school with over 300 students from 3 to adult. Classes are taught by fully qualified, registered dance teachers.
Each term pupils are prepared for RAD Ballet exams and ISTD Modern and Tap exams. Pupils are invited to take part in creative Spring Workshops as well as Summer Schools to explore a wider range of dance styles alongside their regular classes. Many pupils have gone on to follow a career in performance or to teach dance – it has been a particular pleasure to welcome back past pupils as teachers within the school.
We currently have a number of former pupils studying dance full time at vocational schools: Mirabelle Seymour at White Lodge, The Royal Ballet School, Matthew Keller at Tring Park, Katy Mills at Legat, Lottie Chivers, Phoebe Head and William Bridgeland at ‘The Place’, London Contemporary, Libby Mills at Laban Conservatoire and Martha Gardner and Grace Barker at the Brit School. We also have current students studying in London on Associate or CATS schemes: Daisy Fretten at London Senior Ballet, Alexandra Clark at London Junior Ballet and Legat, Martha Gardner at ‘The Place, London Contemporary, Molly Walker and Ellie Barton at Laban Conservatoire and Molly Walker and Jackson Shallcross-Platt at National Youth Dance Company.
